Tentative Interim Amendment NFPA® 220 Standard on Types of Building Construction 2012 Edition Reference: 3.3.3 Limited-Combustible Material, 3.3.4 Noncombustible Material, 4.1.5, and 4.1.6 TIA 12-1 (SC 11-8-25/TIA Log #1027) Note: Text of the TIA issued and incorporated into the text of 3.3.3 Limited-Combustible Material, 3.3.4 Noncombustible Material,
The committee rejected this comment because the term limited-combustible is not used or defined in the mandatory sections of the standard. There are multiple other definitions of combustible used throughout NFPA documents and the current definition meets the conditions that the committee is addressing within this standard.

2016 NFPA 13 provides the following descriptions for Limited or Non-Combustible Materials: 3.3.16* Limited-Combustible (Material). Refers to a building construction material not complying with the definition of noncombustible material that, in the form in which it is used, has a potential heat value not
The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) also uses the ASTM E136 test for determining the combustibility of a material. If a material cannot pass E136 it may be recognized as a limited-combustible material. A limited-combustible material: • meets Part 2 in the IBC and has a potential heat of 3500 Btu/lb or less as classified in NFPA 259 -
Combustible materials are those which can combust, i.e. burn in air.Flammable materials are combustible materials that can be easily ignited at ambient temperatures whereas those that are harder to ignite are just considered combustible.. The degree of flammability or combustibility in air depends largely upon the volatility of the material - this is related to its composition-specific vapour ...
Definition - Combustible (Material). A material that, in the form in which it is used and under the conditions anticipated, will ignite and burn; a material that does not meet the definition of non-combustible or limited-combustible. Chapter 66 of the 2018 NFPA 1 has the provisions for the storage of flammable and combustible liquids.
Both NFPA 5000 and NFPA 101 incorporate a holistic implementation of fire protection and life safety requirements within the scope of each code. As a result, applications for combustible materials, such as wood, are limited, especially in unsprinklered and larger multistory structures. These codes and their referenced standards
