Selection of outfitting and decorative materials for ship living accommodations from the point of view of toxic hazard in the initial phase of fire progress

Upholstery furniture and bedding components which presently are required to satisfy conditions of resistance to only small fire setting sources, really constitute a serious source of toxic hazard. The proposed method of toxic hazard assessment in the initial phase of fire progress, due to thermal decomposition and combustion of materials, makes appropriate selection of outfitting materials for shipboard living and service accommodations already in ship design phase, possible. Practical application of the proposed algorithm of selection procedure of suitable outfitting and decorative materials intended for shipboard living accommodations would decrease fire toxic hazard level in such accommodations.
