The phenomena of wood igniting when exposed for extended periods of time to temperatures below wood’s published ignition temperature value has been of considerable interest in recent years.

While there are presently no scientific formulas to reliably predict the occurrence, there is substantial empirical data which demonstrates that it does in fact occur.

This slideshow provides data from three well-documented restaurant kitchen fires and observations of wood located behind heated wall mounted appliances in three operating restaurants, combined with laboratory and manufacturer testing are used to demonstrate that low temperature ignition of wood clearly occurs.
