  • Include specially formulated ceilings in a variety of textures
  • Are the only Armstrong products approved for UL assemblies
  • Even include specially designed suspension systems

Local building codes, which require fire-safe construction for many building applications rely on two ratings to evaluate compliance:

  • Flame spread rating of a material
  • Fire-resistance rating of a construction assembly 

These ratings are based on ASTM standards, and compliance is determined by several independent, nongovernmental testing services such as Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. Flame spread and fire-resistance ratings are two separate issues, and they must be addressed independently in selection and specification.
