ASTM E119 – Standard Test Methods for Fire Tests of Building Construction and Materials
The test methods described in this fire-test-response standard are applicable to assemblies of masonry units and to composite assemblies of structural materials for buildings, including loadbearing and other walls and partitions, columns, girders, beams, slabs, and composite slab and beam assemblies for floors and roofs.
They are also applicable to other assemblies and structural units that constitute permanent integral parts of a finished building.
It is the intent that classifications shall register comparative performance to specific fire-test conditions during the period of exposure and shall not be construed as having determined suitability under other conditions or for use after fire exposure.
