How can Warringtonfire help with your automotive project
Warringtonfire is a recognized leader in evaluating material and system behaviour to a range of national and international fire safety standards.
We offer numerous fire, flammability and smoke testing standards to verify the performance of your automotive interior materials and fuel tanks. We can also provide specialist testing to the specifications of particular car manufacturers.
Our Frankfurt laboratory is a KBA-recognised center of excellence for plastic fuel tank testing according to ECE R 34 annex 5 – an increasingly common component in motor vehicles which is very important to be fire resistant. Another particularly important area of focus for automotive fire resistance is the passenger compartment, as materials need to have a degree of fire resistance to allow time for evacuation in the event of an accident. Warringtonfire are experts at assisting with such testing, providing the assurance you require.
We can also provide UKAS accredited non-fire automotive testing through our parent company, Element. They specialize in many testing types, including environmental, functionality and endurance, physical and performance and interior and exterior automotive trim and components for commercial, passenger, rail and off-road vehicles.
