In the modern infrastructure that consists of tall modern buildings, a fire spread can be unpredictable and potentially life threatening. With the best practice standards being followed, the fire resistant construction is required to be closely regulated.

Why do we test products?

The behavior of a burning object in a developing fire will have an impact on how easy it is for people to escape from the scene. Even when reaction to fire testing is not required under the regulations, a relevant insurer or authority may request improvements of product performance, for which fire testing is required. To monitor the reaction of products; Material Lab conduct tests to evaluate ignition, flame spread and heat release.
Material Lab is accredited by EIAC and approved by Dubai Civil Defense for fire testing. We have the latest and advance facility to conduct fire tests in accordance to EN 13501-1, BS 476 Part 22, EN 1363, EN 1634, UL and various international test standards.


🔥Reaction to Fire

Reaction to fire tests that are being used to assess the contribution to fire growth from products such as walls, floors, and ceiling linings. Different tests are used to examine ignition, flammability, rate of heat release and combustion effluent like smoke and burning droplet behavior.

🔥Fire Resistance
Fire Resistance tests evaluate the ability of an element of construction such as a door, wall, floors and others... to withstand the effects of a fully developed fire. This can be quantified simply as a measure of time, or it may entail a multitude of criteria involving other evidence of functionality or fitness for purpose.
