Laboratories for Tests and Certifications

> FIRELAB (Resistance to Fire Testing Laboratory)

Fire tests with SBI (Single Burner Item) are carried out on construction materials pursuant to UNI EN 13823: 2010 and ignitability with a small flame according to standard EN ISO 11925-2: 2005. The activities of the laboratory include non-regulatory tests with these devices in order to define regulations concerning non-standard materials or applications.

It has been operational for over 20 years and is one of the world’s reference points for the sector. The test plant is specifically dedicated to verifying the functional characteristics and the outflow capacity of safety valves operating in air and in water. The tests are normally carried out both for R & D and for the product certification (CE) according to industry standards (ISO 4126). The laboratory can operate on two different test benches: in water or in the air. The test division for valves operating in air is certified in accordance with ISO 9001.
The Laboratory is accredited to EN17025 by ACCREDIA DP (Department of Test) and operates as a multi-site laboratory LAB N.1275
