Doorsets and hardware testing services

Our UKAS accredited laboratories in High Wycombe and Warrington, as well as our NATA accredited laboratory in Melbourne and our BELAC accredited laboratory in Gent provide a full range of doorset fire testing services and fire resistance testing for door hardware (such as locks, latches, hinges, closers, exit devices and kick plates).

Doorset fire testing is a route to adhere to the legal requirement for manufacturers of fire doorsets to provide proof that their products resist fire. Doorset fire testing will generate test evidence, demonstrating fire resistance performance to the required period of time (e.g. 30, 60, 120 minutes). The performance of a doorset must be considered as a complete unit i.e. the door leaf/leaves, frames and all other associated component parts, including door hardware.

Accredited doorset fire testing

We provide accredited doorset fire testing to British, European and International standards on a range of passive fire protection products, doorsets and door hardware. Once your test is completed, 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.

As a Notified Body of the European Commission our fire resistance test evidence can be used to support the CE marking of passive fire protection products
