Large-Scale Fire Resistance Testing Services

Manufacturers, engineers, architects and government agencies work with us to evaluate fire and structural performance of materials, components, systems and structures under full-scale fire exposure and post-flashover conditions. We participate in development of standards and perform evaluation tests in accordance with ASTM, NFPA, IMO, ISO, UL, ULC, FM and Bellcore NEBS protocols. Visit our list of Standard Tests for more information.
