Fire Testing Services


** Update June 2017 **

We have had many requests lately for testing building cladding material. Whilst we are unable to offer the required industry standard and accredited tests such as BS 476 Parts 6 and 7, we can test the material on our Cone Calorimeter (ISO 5660-1, BS 476 Part 15).

As this test also involves exposing the sample to a heat source comparable to that of a domestic fire, Cone Calorimetry could be viewed as a quick, inexpensive and possible alternative way of screening material if the BS 476 Parts 6 and 7 tests are unavailable from other service providers.
