Fire Committee

The Fire Committee is a special subcommittee of ACMA’s Technical Committee.  The role of this committee is to help educate members on the fire effects on composites performance, address fire related issues pertaining to composites, support development of standards and specifications, and initiate/support development of fire testing to characterize composites performance.  Members of the Fire Committee have been instrumental in helping the Architectural Division develop sections of the International Building Code pertaining to architectural composites as well as organizing technical papers for presentation at ACMA’s annual conference – COMPOSITES.
