Testing is vital in developing products and bringing them to market. It ensures your product is safe, legal and fit for purpose. Warringtonfire undertakes many different types of testing, either from its own laboratories or from our Element sites.
Warringtonfire is proud to offer cold smoke leakage and acoustic testing from its High Wycombe site, as well as, a full range of testing for structural timber dowel-type fasteners under BS EN 14592, alongside our Timber Services Division.
At Element’s Wednesbury laboratory, our engineers can test to a wide range of recognised test requirements, as well as work with you to develop bespoke testing and research programmes for new or innovative products on all door, window, and hardware products.
Testing is essential to almost any product manufacturer. It can be used to help meet the requirement of CE or UKCA marking or other third-party certification schemes such as Q-Mark, or Certisecure or to satisfy legal regulations and contract specifications. Moreover, the right testing programme can differentiate your product from the competition.
Warringtonfire, together with BM TRADA and Element offer one of the most comprehensive ranges of independent, UKAS accredited testing services available for construction products to British and European standards. Our testing is also recognised for Secured by Design, third party certification and UKCA/ CE marking of products.
