ABECN A Burning Question: Fire Testing Of A Window Wall System With Spray Foam Insulation

April 21, 2021

Alberta Building Envelope Council North’s April virtual event topic will discuss fire testing of a window wall system with spray foam insulation.  Join us on April 21, 2021.
More information and registration here.

Session Overview: A Burning Question: Fire Testing Of A Window Wall System With Spray Foam Insulation

The use of foam insulation as part of building enclosures has received increased scrutiny in recent years and numerous envelope assemblies have been successfully tested to CAN/ULC S134 (ref 1) or its US counterpart NFPA 285 (ref 2). However, most of these assembly specific tests have been performed on stud wall assemblies. The presentation will outline the results of testing spray foam insulation inboard of a unitized glazing system and demonstrate that these assemblies meet current fire protection standards.

This session will be presented by Stéphane P. Hoffman, M. Arch., M. Eng., P. Eng.
