Fire and Flame Spread Testing and Evaluation

Flammability Testing

Fire safety standards help manufacturers design and build better, safer products — and this saves lives. NTA offers fire-testing services to the recreational vehicle and manufactured housing industries to ensure that these structures are code compliant per existing national and international standards, like the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) and the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), to protect consumers with safe designs and fire-resistant construction materials. Fire safety testing continues to play a major role in the success of these industries, as well as the safety and desirability of the products they manufacture.

How can NTA help you

NTA performs testing to aid in determining the following:

  • Surface flammability (radiant heat resistance)
  • Flammability of interior materials

Our nationally recognized testing lab (view our IAS Scope of Accreditation), can perform fire testing to determine code compliance in the following ways:

  • ASTM D3675: Standard Test Method for Surface Flammability of Flexible Cellular Materials Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source
  • ASTM E162: Standard Test Method for Surface Flammability of Materials Using a Radiant Heat Energy Source
  • FMVSS 302: Flammability of Interior Materials - Passenger Cars, Multipurpose Passenger Vehicles, Trucks, and Buses
