Fire testing up close.

DVD demonstrates fire testing process

Published:  24 July, 2009

HIGH WYCOMBE: Chiltern International Fire (CIF) has produced a DVD to demonstrate the test process for fire protection products such as fire resisting doorsets and to explain the regulatory and test requirements they must meet.

Entitled Fire Resistance Testing Explained, the DVD takes the viewer through a live fire doorset test.

Aimed at companies who are developing and manufacturing fire protection products, it will also be useful for architects, designers, specifiers, controlling authorities and building owners/managers who need to understand the importance of passive fire protection products and how they work.

CIF is UKAS-accredited to test a wide range of passive fire protection products, including timber and steel fire doorsets, glazed screens and glazing systems and penetration/linear seals to both British and European standards.

To request a free copy of Fire Resistance Testing Explained, email or telephone 01494 569800.
