BSRIA is an independent laboratory for testing metal, steel, concrete and plastic chimneys, flues. liners and fittings to BS EN standards for CE Marking, local markets and regulations.
Under the Construction Products Regulation, from the 1 July 2013 it will be mandatory for chimney products sold in the EU to carry the CE Mark. The Mark may only be affixed after successful completion of testing, auditing of factory production control and the issue of a certificate by an independent accredited authority.
Bespoke data acquisition and processing, and advanced safety systems within our facility enable several tests to be conducted simultaneously while significantly improving the test time.
• Corrosion testing V2 - requirement of the European standard • Safety, fire resistance, reliability, corrosion and performance characteristics • Temperature, pressure, condense resistance, liner specification, soot fire resistance
