ASTM E1537-07 Fire testing of upholstered furniture – Standard Brief

ASTM E1537-07 Standard Method of Test for Fire testing of upholstered furniture is a fire-test-response standard. The purpose of this test method is to determine the burning behavior of upholstered furniture used in public occupancies by measuring specific fire-test responses when the specimen of furniture is subjected to a specified flaming ignition source under well-ventilated conditions.

Data are obtained describing the burning behavior from a specific ignition source until all burning has ceased, a period of 1 h has elapsed, or flashover appears inevitable.

        This test method does not provide information on the fire performance of upholstered furniture in fire conditions other than those conditions specified. In particular, this test method does not apply to smoldering ignition by cigarettes.

        The rate of heat release of the burning specimen is measured by an oxygen consumption method.
 

        The production of light obscuring smoke is measured and the concentrations of certain toxic gas species in the combustion gases are determined.

The burning behavior is visually documented by photographic or video recordings, whenever possible.
