Help manufacturers improve fire performance of products and materials
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.
TÜV SÜD’s fire testing laboratories are recognised by the Fire Safety and Shelter Department (FSSD) of Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF), the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) as well as fire and housing authorities in Hong Kong and Civil Defence in Middle East countries such as Dubai, Qatar, etc.
