NFPA 1, UFC, requires dumpsters over 40 gallons in size have lids. If the lid is plastic it has to meet the HRR limit of 300 kw/sq meter in ASTM E 1354, Test Method for Heat and Visible Smoke Release Rates for Materials and Products Using an Oxygen Consumption Calorimeter, or NFPA 271, Standard Method of Test for Heat and Visible Smoke Release Rates for Materials and Products Using an Oxygen Consumption Calorimeter.
My question: does anyone know of a manufacturer of plastic lids that meet this criteria? We are looking for ones that fit 57 cu ft size dumpsters. And yes they are inside the building.
