1. The surface-burning characteristics as set forth in U.B.C. Standard 8-1.

2. Any other recognized method of test procedure for determining the surface-burning characteristics of finish materials that will give comparable results to those specified in method Item1 above.

3. The room fire growth contribution for textile wall coverings as set forth in U.B.C. Standard 8-2.

802.2 Classification. The classes of materials based on their flame-spread index shall be as set forth in Table 8-A. The smoke density shall be no greater than 450 when tested in accordance with U.B.C. Standard 8-1 in the way intended for use.
