Warringtonfire and the rail industry

Warringtonfire has been supporting the rail industry for over 30 years. We specialize in several key areas, from testing performance-critical rolling stock components to the design, inspection, and assessment of crucial railway infrastructure, including stations, tunnels, bridges, and trackside fencing.

Warringtonfire prides itself on having an engaged team of outstanding technical experts across various disciplines who will work alongside you to help complete your rail project, achieve your objectives and comply with local and international regulations. 

Full service rail fire safety

Warringtonfire testing services comprise fire tests and assessments to a large number of national and international rail standards.

Our UKAS and BELAC accredited laboratories are based in Warrington, UK and Gent, Belgium. These independently accredited testing laboratories can test for flammability, combustibility, toxic fume emission, smoke emission and fire resistance of rolling stock components, called upon in the railway standards.

Many of our staff are recognized as international experts within their field and have been involved in developing new rail test procedures.

How can Warringtonfire help with your rail project

In addition to the testing, our independently accredited fire engineers can work with you on your rail infrastructure project, helping you design the fire and evacuation strategy for your stations and platforms.

Our sister company, BM TRADA, also has a team of timber experts who can inspect and advise upon any timber structure within the rail network.

Our parent company, Element, can also provide non-fire performance testing for rolling stock components, including environmental and physical and performance testing.
