These tests are then authenticated & certified by TNO Efectis, Netherlands and classified via Bureau Veritas both being independent certified & accredited testing facilities.


Our test facilities have a unique test environment where both existing products and new developments can be tested under conditions that mirror actual practice.

Many of the products are tested under REAL circumstances in the field to ensure they meet the required performance necessary.

Some of these tests are as extreme as missile strikes & explosive detonations, to the ultimate Jet Fire ISO 22899-1:2007 test. This test is a 360kph blast of LPG fuelled fire, for more than 120 minutes at temperatures of up to 1200 deg C. And a multitude of certified furnace tests offering 4 hour / 240 minute performance.
