Orientation of fire test samples

Orientation of fire test samples

Orientation of fire test samples is important based on the simple physical fact that heat rises. A test made on a vertically aligned sample will be more critical than the same application of ignition source on a horizontally arranged sample due to the ignition flame providing heat to the textile above the point of application and effectively providing more fuel for burning to occur.
