Product & system assessment

The laboratory assessments are studies based on test report analysis of conventional fire tests already carried out, and may lead to the issuance of:

  • An extension of field of application (EXAP) to validate minor modifications on the element already covered by the initial classification report
  • A classification report defining the field of application of the fire resistance elements
  • On-site approvals following modifications to the tested elements.
  • An on-site assessment when the study requires further measurements in-situ

The objective of these studies is provide an optimized answer to the client in terms of cost and time constraints. These can also be based on modeling studies for honing the justifications or recommendations.

These studies are intended for all those involved in fire safety (architects, inspectors, contractors, etc.), and can be considered for any type of construction for which a fire resistance performance is expected.
