Using large LED video screen on the exterior wall of building for information delivering, advertising and story-telling has become an emerging trend in the façade design of contemporary buildings. As this technology is adopted worldwide in a fast pace, however, potential fire hazards associated with the technology have not been widely made aware. The high combustibility of polymeric materials in such systems may pose severe fire hazards to the built environment, bringing in significant life safety issues and property loss during a fire incident. Therefore, it is essential to understand how the system performs in a fire environment and hence might pose threatening to the built environment as well as to the occupants inside the building. This study adopts performance based methodology and uses a fire modeling tool developed by NIST, FDS, to evaluate the fire hazards brought by exterior video cladding wall.
