AbstractOne of the tasks in the project, Wood and Wood-Hybrid Midrise Buildings, was to develop further information and data for use in developing generic exterior wall systems for use in mid-rise buildings using either lightweight wood frame or cross-laminated timber as the structural elements. This report describes a screening fire test conducted on August 22, 2012 on a rainscreen wall system. The test was based on CAN/ULC-S134-13 [3]. However, the dimensions of the test wall (2.4 m wide by 4.9 m high) were less than those required for the standard test conducted in accordance with CAN/ULC-S134.
