The IFC Group are experts in all areas of fire testing. Through our knowledge of relevant standards we can advise our clients on how to ensure products comply with fire legislation. By combining our fire testing expertise with our fire engineering experience we often identify innovative new ways for clients to utilise and market their products.
To maintain our independent status we do not run our own test laboratories. As recognised experts in all areas of fire testing we regularly manage the process of testing and assessing the fire performance of products and materials, giving the assurance sought by many of the industry’s leading manufacturers.
This includes reaction and resistance to fire testing of materials and structures; timber fire doors, penetration seals, cavity barriers, load-bearing and non load-bearing wall systems, glazed screens.
Reasons to undertake a fire test
Maximising product potential
In order to sell or use a product, manufacturers or suppliers often need to make sure that their offering meets or exceeds certain fire performance criteria.
Need advice to comply
When developing new products, it’s often difficult to understand and know you are complying with current fire legislation requirements.
Gaining market trust
To substantiate product claims and capabilities and to validate installation procedures that will satisfy authorising bodies and project specifications.
