Research and development
As a consequence of extensive Research and Development, we believe that Fire Protection's products are the most technically advanced systems of their kind on the market.
Our current position as a provider of passive fire protection services is a result of extensive collaborative research into the fire-resisting ductwork market and the subsequent bringing together of two disciplines - ductwork manufacture and fire resisting coating production. This has led to the development of the unique range of Flamebar products.
The Research and Development facility has the capacity to identify and develop new products and their subsequent applications. This facility has extensive fire testing equipment, which enables our products to be tested to their limits; for example, material testing facilities to demonstrate surface spread of flame and compliance with Building Regulation requirements.
The centerpiece of the Research and Development facility is a furnace that can follow the fire curve laid down in the EN 1363-1 test standard, the general requirements standard for fire resistance testing. With flexibility built into its design, it can also be used to test barriers, fire stopping, fixings, cable enclosures and penetration applications.
We meet the requirements of our customers by responding to market needs, which has become the cornerstone of Fire Protection's development process, resulting in developing a range of solutions that are innovative, flexible and cost effective.
