Testing

Testing

Testing covers a broad spectrum. In our case, it can mean anything from watching a faulty hair dryer catch fire, to testing a state of the art boiler. The list of what we test is rather daunting, we admit, so if you can't see what you're looking for, please call us and we will do our best to help.

Proudly a Notified Body under the GAD and BED, and an authorised testing laboratory under the Construction Products Regulation. We can test almost any appliance using solid fuel, gas, oil, micro-CHP and renewables.We test appliances fuelled by biomass, oil, gas and solid fuel (we have the UK's only UKAS-accredited solid fuel testing laboratory (No.0692). We also do WRAS approvals and test products coming into contact with potable water, and electrical appliances requiring electrical safety and EMC compliance.

Construction products testing is a speciality of ours. From ground examination before foundations are even laid, to compliance testing the finished building…if you can build with it, we can test it. We can also assist in the development process and mix design, and conduct laboratory, on-site investigation and physical testing on materials. Slip Resistance Testing, tensile strength, workable life, flow and setting time of concrete products, additives, admixtures and pigments; evaluation of concrete repair and cement materials, we can assess virtually any material used in modern day construction.
