In the U.S., the Steiner Tunnel test is typically designated as ASTM E84 (or UL 723), while in Canada it is widely known as CAN/ULC-S102. Both tunnels are identical dimensionally and are run under nominally the same operating conditions. Additionally, they both stipulate similar methodologies where the specimen is mounted into the tunnel, forming the ceiling of the interior surface of the apparatus. The surface to be evaluated is exposed face-down to the ignition source. The material, product or assembly shall be capable of being mounted in the test position during the test. Thus, the specimen shall either be self-supporting by its own structural properties, held in-place by added supports along the test surface, or secured to a rigid substrate. The main differences of these tests lie in:
