The testing process is relatively straight forward. A manufacturer / designer submits a specimen and we install it within a suitable structural surround and test it.
During the testing stage, we continue to make every effort to ensure that the test programme goes as smoothly and seamlessly as possible. We often provide our clients with the services of our on-site technical team to handle critical aspects of the testing process. Examples include:
- For door testing, our technical team provides a full support service to ensure the test specimen is assembled and installed correctly. We also have workshop facilities enabling further work to doorsets as required, including a supply of hardware, intumescent seals and glazing systems.
- For penetration sealing systems, we recognise that is often difficult to obtain all the cables, pipes and support systems that the standard specifies, so we source and supply these materials when required.
Once a product has been tested, a report will be issued that will contain all the construction details of the tested specimen together with information on the size and configuration of the test sample.
Our testing service is supported by experienced product assessors who can assist in developing test programmes, explaining the test procedure, witnessing tests and reviewing the results.
