NFPA 285 is the standard for fire testing in exterior walls when combustible materials, such as foam plastic continuous insulation and water-resistive barriers, are components within the wall assembly. This stringent and expensive test provides a specific method of determining the flammability characteristics of complete exterior, non-load-bearing wall assemblies/panels.

Building Envelope Considerations for Food Processing Plants

The selection of essential components that comprise the building envelope—walls, ductwork, roof and interior doors—have a significant impact on a food processing plant's efficiency, durability, safety and sanitation.
