    SERVICES OFFERED BY THE ASSET

    Fire resistance

    - Vertical furnace of 3x3m for fire resistance of walls, partitions, facades, enclosures, doors and other elements of vertical sectorization against fire. - Horizontal furnace of 3x4m for fire resistance of floors, roofs, ceilings, forgings, ventilation / smoke control installations and other elements of horizontal sectorization against fire. - Experimental cubic furnace of 1,5x1,5m for preliminary tests of new materials, products or systems in research projects.

    Reaction to fire

    - Equipment used for the characterization of the reaction to fire of materials, products and construction systems in the building and civil works sector, to obtain the "Euroclass systems": Non-combustibility furnace, calorimetric pump, small burner, floor radiant panel and SBI (Single Burning Item). - Equipment for the characterization of the reaction to fire of materials, products and construction systems in the transport sector (e.g. naval IMO, rail CERTIFER). Calorimetric cone, optical density, lateral propagation, oxygen index, etc. - Infrastructure of large scale fire propagation tests for facades (up to 10m of sample height) according to international regulations (BS, ISO, NFPA, CAN-ULC, etc.). - (COMING SOON) Infrastructure for fire reaction tests for electrical cables of High Voltage and Medium Voltage, CE marking in the construction and transport sectors. Vertical propagation, heat release, smoke opacity, etc.
