TRANSIT FLAMMABILITY REQUIREMENTS
Control of the flammability characteristics of furnishings within a structure will reduce the fire hazard to the structure and enhance the life safety of its occupants. Flammability of materials should be considered along with comfort, cost and wear. Quantifying flammability, setting acceptable standards, identifying appropriate test procedures, and locating the material to satisfy the standards are steps taken by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
