Firestopping services for European, U.S. and British regulations and codes
Utilizing our fire testing facility in Rosenheim, Germany, we can conduct a single combined fire resistance test that includes critical requirements of the UL test standards for North America, EN test standards for Europe and BS test standards for the UK. It is the only European laboratory that can support testing for the UL Mark for access to North America. In addition, we can offer environmental and durability test capabilities.
Our engineers have extensive UL, EN and BS standards experience and have participated in many of the relevant standards writing committees. We can create custom test programs that cater for all needs to assess compliance with all critical requirements, including:
North and South America, Africa, Middle East, Asia and Australia – includes specific requirements in UL 1479, UL 2079 and ASTM E814 including, for example, the hose stream test.
Europe – includes additional requirements, including unexposed face thermocouple positioning and attention to furnace pressure.
British – BS test method addressed via the adoption of the EN standard subject to an expert judgement prior to and after completion of the testing.
This unique combination of skill sets saves time to market and initial and ongoing costs.
Strengthening safety and simplifying market access for the building materials industry out of the heart of Europe, linked to a global network.
Fire protection remains critical to the structural integrity of a building and the safety of its occupants. Understanding how materials react to fire and knowing that materials respond appropriately can help manufacturers produce safer products and enables building owners, architects and others to design buildings with confidence.
As a testing organisation, certification organisation and standards development organisation, UL contributes to public safety globally in a visible, tangible way every day. With our roots firmly in fire safety, we have earned a global reputation as a leader in applying testing methods, highly sophisticated fire data modeling techniques and technical expertise to addressing fire-related issues.
Our fire testing facility in Germany, established in partnership with the renowned ift Rosenheim Institute, offers the European market a vast portfolio of testing and certification services for building materials according to most international fire-resistance and reaction to fire standards. The German laboratory is closely linked to UL’s global network of advisory, testing, and certification expertise, helping our customers bundle services, understand the needs of other global markets, and quickly access their target markets.
