IIBEC Canadian Prairies Chapter: UL Fire Testing
IIBEC – Canadian Prairies is hosting a Lunch ‘n Learn talk on “UL Fire Testing”.
Join us for an online tour and demonstration of the Tremco Fire Test Lab.
The major test criteria in the area of fire resistance for roofing assemblies are ASTM E-108, UL (Underwriters Laboratories) 790 and FM (Factory Mutual System) Class I. Only completely specified system configurations – including combustible or non-combustible deck, insulation type and thickness and fastening – can potentially receive these approvals. Individual products are not eligible. Understanding the various codes and approvals and their ramifications represents a critical element in the proper design and specification of a roofing system.
Tremco Roofing has an in-house fire test laboratory capable of testing products to either ASTM E108 or UL 790 test criteria. Our laboratory testing apparatus is so accurate and test procedures so rigorous that it is the only roofing material manufacturer’s test laboratory at which UL will confer a UL 790 classification. Join us for an online discussion of fire resistance testing, tour of the fire lab and demonstration.
This talk is being presented by Tom Biller – Training Manager for Tremco Roofing and Building Maintenance. This Lunch ‘n Learn is good for 1 CEH.
