Combustion Safety Testing Protocols

Wednesday, April 25
8:30 AM - 10:00 AM
Location: Salon A (5th Floor)

Combustion safety testing has undergone a major overhaul in the last several years. BPI, NFPA, and ACCA have all changed their procedures and have come into substantial alignment. This has also resulted in changes to the SWS. This session will review the different protocols, discuss why these changes have occurred, and explore the implications for the residential retrofit industry.
