Limited combustibility

In England, the building regulations establish requirements for specific aspects of building design and construction. Approved documents then provide guidance for satisfying those requirements in common building situations.

Approved document B of the building regulations 'Fire Safety', defines limited combustibility as: 'A material performance specification that includes non-combustible materials, and for which the relevant test criteria are set out in Appendix A, paragraph 9.'

Requirements for materials of limited combustibility are defined in table A7 of Approved Document B.
