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 or its US counterpart NFPA 285. However, most of these assembly specific tests have been performed on stud wall assemblies. This presentation outlines the results of testing spray foam insulation inboard of a unitized glazing system and demonstrates that these assemblies can also meet the requirements of these standards.

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