Summary
  • With the advent of regulations in New South Wales controlling the use of all materials in buildings on the basis of results of tests for early fire hazard properties, the Timber Development Association of New South Wales has sponsored tests at EBS on a range of timber species sold locally. These regulations do not include Class I (single dwellings) and Class X (outbuildings) and there is presently no restriction on materials used in these buildings. The results of tests for early fire hazard properties on a limited number of building timbers have been reported by Beesley, Keough and Moulen. That investigation was mainly to examine the effect of preservative and flame retardant impregnations on early fire behaviour. Prior to preparation of the range of species of locally available timbers by the Timber Development Association of New South Wales, a preliminary investigation was conducted on three timbers to examine the effect of thickness, finish and profile. The results of this preliminary work are reported in Appendix A. Clause 16.19(10)(f) of Ordinance 70 of the Local Government Act, New South Wales, exempts conventional paint varnish, lacquer or similar finish from materials control by spread of flame index and smoke developed index determined to AS 1530 Part 3, Test for Early Fire Hazard Properties of Materials. The present tests were therefore conducted on bare timber specimens. In addition to the results of early fire hazard tests on the range of solid timbers, results are given for three corner-burn experiments with solid timber panels and the full-scale performance is compared with the early fire hazard results.
