Fire Tests and Certification

UL International and ift Rosenheim offer manufacturers of building elements and building materials tests for fire behavior, fire and smoke resistance, fire spread, flammability and further product characteristics from one single source.

Working closely with ift Rosenheim and UL will provide many synergies, such as the possibility of combining fire tests against multiple standards and product testing for the widest possible range of products with attention to a high level of quality and service and with wide global market acceptance.

In the Centre of Excellence for Fire-Resistance Testing, tests can be carried out according to EN, UL, ULC, DIN and British standards, so the certificates are valid not only in Europe, but also in the USA, Canada, Middle East, Latin America and Asia.
