Standard Classification of Wall Coverings by Use Characteristics
|Publication Date:||15 December 2015|
|ICS Code (Interior finishing):||91.180|
significance And Use:
4.1 This classification provides criteria by which wall coverings of appropriate use characteristics can be chosen for particular residential and commercial decorating applications.
1.1 This classification covers the classification of wall coverings by use characteristics, that is, according to their serviceability in use, recognizing that certain wall coverings are designed primarily for decorative effect, while other wall coverings are also designed to achieve a high degree of serviceability.
1.1.1 This classification applies to all wall coverings but some sections apply specifically to vinyl-coated wall covering materials.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system are not necessarily exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems has the potential to result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.3 This standard is used to measure and describe the properties of materials, products, or assemblies to heat and flame under controlled conditions, but does not by itself incorporate all factors required for fire hazard or fire risk assessment of the materials, products, or assemblies under actual fire conditions.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
