Reax has recently completed experimental work supporting code change proposals related to building insulation systems. Intermediate scale fire testing evaluated ignition and fire spread performance of below grade thermal insulation and storage of insulation on worksites. Results of the test will be presented at the upcoming California Building Standards Commission meeting in support of proposed code changes. Reax Engineering has broad experience providing fire performance and code compliance expertise to national and international consumer safety organizations, product developers, and code developers seeking a better understanding of fire performance and risk.
Our experts support code development processes in many areas including approvals of new fire safe construction methods, experimental assessment of fire performance of home furnishings and building construction materials, and research and development work in fire safe products. Our experts are active in code development within the International Code Council, International Electrotechnical Commission, California Building Standards Commission, ASTM, and other national and international code development organizations.
