Fire resistance and protection at FireSert

Full scale test validation related to reaction and resistance to fire testing of materials or structures.


Fire Resistance applies to individual elements of building construction (Non load bearing; load bearing) measures integrity, insulation and load bearing capacity using BS476, EN 1364, EN 1365.

Fire resistance is defined in BS 476: Part 20: 1987 as the ability of an element of building construction to withstand exposure to a standard temperature, time and pressure regime without loss of its fire separating function or loadbearing function or both for a given time.

Tests can be carried out to British and European test standards.
