AbstractCurrent fire resistance tests of compartment boundary materials should be referred to as "fire spread resistance" tests. Unless additional fire protection measures have been taken, compartment boundaries are rarely able to prevent the spread of fire out of the space of origin. The true fire resistance of all key building components, therefore, must be judged on ability of those components to withstand fire exposure from two sides.
