Glass and glazing systems testing services

Warringtonfire undertakes glass and glazing systems testing from our UKAS accredited laboratories in High Wycombe and Warrington, our BELAC accredited laboratory in Gent and our NATA accredited laboratory in Melbourne.
We can test to Australian, British, European and International standards for fire rated glass and glazing and other passive fire protection products. On completion of testing your product with us, you will be issued with a comprehensive and internationally recognized fire resistance test report. 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 glass and glazing systems are being used increasingly in construction products, due to their aesthetic appeal and therefore need to be tested more and more rigorously.

Fire resistant glass and glazing systems may be used as a barrier for fire separation or compartmentalization as part of an integrated fire strategy for the building. All aspects of glass and glazing systems are crucial, including glass type, intumescent specification and method of installation. The whole assembly must function as an integral system that must be compatible under fire conditions and the performance must be proven by to appropriate and relevant test evidence.
