Summary
This report describes a full-scale exterior wall fire test conducted on December 16, 2014 on a Nordic cross-laminated timber (CLT) wall system. The test was conducted in accordance with CAN/ULC-S134-13, Standard Method of Fire Test of Exterior Wall Assemblies. The test was conducted using the exterior wall fire test facility located in the Burn Hall of the NRC Fire Laboratory, Mississippi Mills, Ontario. The CLT wall system was assembled to represent a continuous solid wood wall covered by a water barrier membrane and insulation. The pilot burners were lit prior to the commencement of the test. Gas flow to the burners was manually adjusted to follow the prescribed heat input required by the standard.

Summary
One of the tasks in the project, Wood and Wood-Hybrid Midrise Buildings, was to develop further information and data for use in developing generic exterior wall systems for use in mid-rise buildings using either lightweight wood frame or cross-laminated timber as the structural elements. This report describes a standard full-scale exterior wall fire test conducted on May 22, 2012 on a simulated cross-laminated timber (CLT) wall assembly with an attached insulated lightweight wood frame assembly protected using gypsum sheathing. The test was conducted in accordance with CAN/ULC-S134 [3].

Summary
"As an alternative option to conventional sprinkler system, water mist systems are considered for the protection of timber buildings because they use much less amounts of water compared to sprinkler systems. The effectiveness of high pressure water mist (HPWM) and low pressure water mist (LPWM) systems was investigated in comparison to sprinkler systems for a residential fire scenario involving mass timber structures. The most distinct characteristic of the HPWM and LPWM systems was fine water droplets generated from the nozzles, which demonstrated effective smoke cooling in the room. Although the water spray rate of the HPWM was four times lower than that of the sprinkler system, the water mist systems effectively control the fire and maintained the room tenable. Most systems (HPWM, LPWM and sprinklers) tested in this study did not prevent fire damage on the CLT walls, but the HPWM system with a wide spray angle demonstrated rapid fire suppression and protection of the CLT walls. In all tests, a large water pool formed on the floor, which appeared proportional to the total water spray discharge in each test, and the moisture contents measured on the surface and bottom edges of the CLT panels indicated that water can penetrate into the interface between the floor and the wall in a typical CLT assembly"--Executive summary, page 1.
