AbstractOne of the tasks in the project, Wood and Wood-Hybrid Midrise Buildings, was to develop further information and data for use in developing generic exterior wall systems for use in mid-rise buildings using either lightweight wood frame or cross-laminated timber as the structural elements. This report describes a standard full-scale exterior wall fire test conducted on March 6, 2012 on an insulated lightweight wood frame wall assembly protected using gypsum sheathing. The test was conducted in accordance with CAN/ULC-S134-13 [3].
