Fire resistance testing services & fire test assessments consultancy services

At PRTC, various elements of construction, systems and structures are exposed to a wide range of rigorous and scientifically calibrated fire resistance tests. Full scale and indicative fire resistance tests are routinely conducted in accordance with widely recognised national and international test standards.

In addition to fire resistance testing, PRTC offers customers a wide portfolio of professional assessment consultancy services. Such assessments support variations to products or systems over and above, or varied, from the actual conducted test. This helps to support applications of products or systems applications within the relevant national building regulations.
