FAQ: What is the UL 2196 test?


The UL 2196 test is designed to evaluate the performance of electrical circuit protective systems in severe fire events. UL 2196 is designed to evaluate the functionality of electrical circuit systems when exposed to fire for 2 hours followed by the mechanical shock of a fire hose stream. RSCC and Champion Fiberglass partnered to develop a cost-effective solution that would continue to function while being exposed to the severe fire requirements of UL 2196.

Testing concluded that the system as described and installed continued to function throughout the entire test. For a copy of the test report, please contact Champion Fiberglass.
