UL 790 and ASTM E 108 — Class A Fire Rating
Cericade Roof Fortification System has met the performance requirements of Class A Burning Brand, Class A Spread of Flame and Class A Intermittent Flame test per ASTM E 108-20a when tested and evaluated to the requirements outlined in ASTM E 108-20a- UL 790.
The Class A fire rating test is a standard test used to evaluate the fire resistance of roofing materials. The Class A fire rating is the highest level of fire resistance rating that a roofing material can receive. The test involves subjecting the roofing material to a controlled fire to evaluate its ability to resist flames, burning embers, and heat transfer. The test measures various parameters, such as flame spread, smoke generation, and the ability of the material to resist ignition and self-extinguish.
The Class A fire rating test is typically conducted according to standards set by organizations such as ASTM International, Underwriters Laboratories (UL), and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
A roofing material with a Class A fire rating can provide an additional layer of protection for the home, as it demonstrates the highest level of resistance to fire and indicates that it is less likely to catch fire or contribute to the spread of flames, potentially saving the home from serious damage or destruction.
