What is a Class A Fire Rating and what is the best rating?
Fire Ratings (UL 790 testing protocol) are granted at one of three levels: Class A, Class B, and Class C. Class A is the highest rating a product can receive. The Class A rating indicates the product has equaled the testing industry's most stringent fire resistance standard, a measure of how the roof will perform in severe fire conditions. CeDUR boasts a Class A Fire Rating without the need of a special fire resistant underlayment.
