    Performance requirements
    Three specimens shall be tested in the machine direction and three in the cross direction in
    accordance with test 3 of BS 5438 using a 10 s flame application time, except that the vertical trip threads shall not be used. None of the six specimens shall sever the 300 mm trip thread in less than 25 s.
    None of the six specimens shall sever the 600 mm trip thread in less than 50 s.
    If any one of the six specimens tested fails to comply with either performance requirement, then a further six specimens shall be tested
    None of the second group of specimens shall fail either of the performance requirements.
