Exova Warringtonfire provides UKAS accredited fire resistance testing to British, European and International standards for load bearing wall systems and non-load bearing partitions. On completion of testing your product with us, you will be issued with a comprehensive and internationally recognised fire resistance test report.
Experienced fire consultants support our testing service and offer clients the opportunity to maximise the scope of coverage generated by their test evidence through an independently produced product assessment or extended field of application (EXAP) and classification report where applicable.
To help against collapse or failure of a building, there is a requirement for load bearing wall systems to have a minimum standard of fire resistance. Such walls must maintain the fire integrity and independent structural stability of buildings. The fire resistance of load bearing wall systems can be demonstrated through destructive fire test evidence.
The spread of fire within a building can be restricted by using fire resisting walls / partitions to separate the building into compartments and allow means of escape. The fire resistance of non-load bearing wall systems can be demonstrated through destructive fire test evidence.
