We can derive optimized, cost-effective solutions, sympathetic to the architectural design of your construction project and provide support throughout the life of the building.

How can Warringtonfire help with your construction project?
Warringtonfire’s experts understand the unique human life and financial risks of fire safety in live construction sites but they also have breadth of knowledge across the complete lifecycle of a construction project, from planning to ongoing building maintenance.
Being a full-service company means we are uniquely placed to draw on our wealth of experience in testing, technical and certification across all areas of construction from Warringtonfire and our sister companies, BM TRADA and Element.
We can test a range of products designed to be installed within buildings, such as doors, penetration seals, structural beam/column encasement, smoke leakage and acoustic properties, and our colleagues at Element can test doors and door products for security and weather testing.
Within our technical teams, our experts can provide services such as product assessments in support of testing, provide technical guidance on bespoke details and can reverse engineer a test programme against a customer’s desired end goal.
Our certification team is also able to offer product and personnel schemes for doorset fabrication, installation and their maintenance within our industry recognised certification schemes. Certification can also be provided for other product sectors such as linear joint seals, penetration seals, ductwork/dampers and coatings/encasements to structural elements.
