I'm befuddled. Curtains in guest sleeping rooms (R-1 Occ) in a hotel are identified in the IFC to be addressed:
Section 807.1 General requirements. In occupancies in Groups A, E, I and R-1 and dormitories in Group R-2, curtains, draperies, hangings and other decorative materials suspended from walls or ceilings shall meet the flame propagation performance criteria of NFPA 701 in accordance with Section 806.2 or be noncombustible.
But when i look at NFPA 701, I only see how the testing is supposed to happen, and NOTHING that says to what level of rating the curtains are supposed to meet. I can't find anything in Section 807 that does that either.
Can't use Table 803.3, as that is for wall and ceiling finishes, and as that is per ASTM E 84 requirements.
So clearly I've missed something. Help?
Appreciate any input on this....Thanks!
