NFPA 262: Standard Method of Test for Flame Travel and Smoke of Wires and Cables for Use in Air-Handling Spaces, 2015 Edition
: National Fire Protection Association
Work with the latest criteria in NFPA 262 for accurate assessments of smoke and fire spread.
NFPA 262: Standard Method of Test for Flame Travel and Smoke of Wires and Cables for Use in Air-Handling Spaces presents a test procedure to evaluate the potential for fire spread along cables and wires housed in a plenum or other environmental space.
Vital for testing labs, the test method measures and records both flame travel distance and optical density of smoke for:
- Electrical wires and cables that are insulated, jacketed, or both
- Optical fiber cables for installation in plenums and other spaces used to transport environmental air without being enclosed in raceways
The 2015 edition is up-to-date with all referenced codes and standards.
Apply the 2015 NFPA 262 to improve fire safety. Annexes include a wealth of helpful information on topics such as smoke and heat release measurements and standard reference cable test. (Softbound, 30 pp., 2015)quick-add/hvac-online-training-study-course /
