The 2010 FTP Code provides the international requirements for laboratory testing, typeapproval and fire test procedures for products referenced under SOLAS chapter II-2. It comprehensively revises and updates the previous Code, adopted by the MSC in 1996.

Be the first to review this product

The 2010 FTP Code includes the following: test for non-combustibility; test for smoke and toxicity; test for “A”, “B” and “F” class divisions; test for fire door control systems; test for surface flammability (surface materials and primary deck coverings); test for vertically supported textiles and films; test for upholstered furniture; test for bedding components; test for fire-restricting materials for high-speed craft; and test for fire-resisting divisions of high-speed craft.

 

It also includes annexes on Products which may be installed without testing and/or approval and on Fire protection materials and required approval test methods.
