Fire testing and certification facility to open in Warrington

A new facility will open in Warrington next year for fire testing, inspection and certification (TIC) services.

Warringtonfire is opening the facility to meet the testing and certification demands driven by increasing regulatory requirements, the introduction of additional standards, the rising importance of third-party certification and product assurance as well as the need for shorter testing lead times. It represents an 80% increase in size over its existing facility in the region and is expected to triple the company’s testing capacity in the medium term.

It will also add unique capabilities including eight state-of-the-art fire resistance testing furnaces, comprising three horizontal and three vertical furnaces designed to evaluate the fire performance of different products or assemblies and two indicative furnaces, which provide a very focused testing method to quantify the ability of a material or assembly to withstand exposure to high temperatures.

The new facility will reduce energy usage and maintain air quality and potential environmental impacts, including built-in recycling systems, energy-efficient fans, plus smoke & odour capture and treatment.

Construction has begun and is expected to be completed in 2025.
