Fire Behaviour of Upholstered Furniture – An Experimental Study

Andersson, Berit LU and Magnusson, Sven Erik LU (1985) In Fire and Materials 9(1). p.41-45
Abstract
A series of experiments for studies of flammability characteristics of upholstered furniture is presented. The series comprises 53 experiments on a reduced scale and 11 full-scale experiments in an extensively instrumented room. Results are presented from measurements of rate of heat release and smoke production. The experiments indicate that ignitability can be considerably decreased by careful choice of the upholstery materials.
