NATIONAL FIRE PROTECTION ASSOCIATION (NFPA)
By law, no ceiling tile can be used indoors that does not pass the ESTM E84 test that requires for FLAME to be 25 or under (0-25) and for Smoke (SDI) to be 450 or under (0-450).
Ceiling Tiles that rate higher than 25 for Flame (FSI) OR higher than 450 for Smoke (SDI) will be considered a violation. Genesis Ceiling Tiles are rated 20.1 FSI and 199.9 SDI
Hospitals, Restaurants and Food Processing Plants should prevent MOLD & BACTERIA, not encourage it by using fiber board tiles. Get rid of those old tiles and upgrade to a ceiling you can keep clean and healthy.
