Fire Resistance Testing Explained

Published:  19 September, 2014

Video explains the fire resistance testing process for passive fire protection products.

Aimed primarily at companies who are developing and manufacturing fire protection products, the updated DVD, Fire Resistance Testing Explained, produced by the test house BM Trada, takes the viewer through the entire fire testing process from specimen design and how to devise a fire test programme, to obtaining third party certification.

Using a live fire doorset test as an example, the DVD shows how products prepared for testing and the range of measurements that are taken during the test. The video highlights typical failure criteria and explains the test evidence required to prove the performance of typical passive fire protection products.

Running for approximately 20 minutes, this new edition brings this popular DVD up to date, providing advice on meeting the requirements of the Construction Products Regulation and CE marking, as well as testing to British Standards. The DVD also outlines the services and support that BM Trada can offer from its independent, UKAS-accredited facilities.
