What is Fire Testing?
Fire is a dangerous element that can destroy properties and endanger lives. Laboratory scale fire testing can help determine the fire performance of a product, thereby assisting manufacturers design products that are fire-resistant and have a lower spread of flame characteristic.
Fire testing allows manufacturers to understand the behaviour of materials and products. The information on a product’s fire performance including fire resistance, flammability, flame / smoke spread characteristics etc, can help manufacturers design products that are safe.
