1. For flame retardance CM (Vertical Tray Flame Test):
General purpose cables meet UL 1581. Cable samples on a 8 feet vertical tray are burned at 20KW (70,000 BTU/Hr) for 20 minutes. The cable specimen is deemed to pass the test if the flame spread will not extend to the upper portion and extinguish by itself. UL 1581 is similar to IEC 60332-3C except for that the number of testing samples is different. This test does not look at the smoke density or toxicity. The CMG cables are usually used in runs penetrating single floor. These cables cannot be installed in vertical pathways


2. For flame retardance CMR (Riser Flame Test):
Riser rated cables meets UL1666. Cable samples on a vertical shaft are burned at 154.5KW (527,500 BTU/Hr) for 30 minutes. To qualify for a riser rating, cable specimen must have the flame spread of less than 12 feet beyond the ignition point. This test does not look at the smoke density or toxicity. Riser rated cables are suitable for vertical shafts not defined as an environmental air plenum.
