SPRI to Canvass BPT-1 Fastener and Stress Plate Standard

SPRI, the association representing sheet membrane and component suppliers to the commercial roofing industry, announced that it is partnering with FM Approvals to create a new standard which will allow the roofing industry to perform comparative small scale testing of roofing fasteners and/or stress plates through board stock materials, such as insulations, cover boards, etc. The proposed standard will be canvassed for approval as an American National Standard.

SPRI/FM BPT-1 will allow various comparative tests for new or different board stock materials, fasteners plates, etc. The proposed standard is based on the FM Approvals existing small-scale test procedure for Plate-Insulation Board Pull Through.

Those wishing to participate in the canvassing process should contact SPRI at info@spri.org.
