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.
