Fire Testing Instruments

At many technical products dangers must be avoided by uncontrolled fires. Preventive measures in practice are for this reason of great importance. As basis for further fire protection measures therefore the knowledge and information about the behaviour in case of fire of the used materials serve.

As a competent partner we offer various measuring and testing instruments to you for the determination of the behaviour in case of fire to the following questions:

  • Burning behavior
  • Combustibility
  • Influence of burning drops

Tests for determining combustibility or burning behaviour of specimens and products are being performed as part of regulatory approval procedures, research, product development and quality assurance.
Please find below some typical tests for evaluating the risk of flammability and ignitability

Automotive sector

  • DIN 75200 / FMVSS 302 (ECE-Reg. No. 118 Annex 6) Determination of burning behaviour of interior materials in motor vehicles -> »Horizontal Burning Rate«
  • UTAC Drip Test  NFP92-506 (ECE Reg. No. 118 Annex 7) Determination of melting behaviour of materials
  • DIN EN ISO 6941 (ECE Reg. No. 118 Annex 8) Measurement of flame spread properties of vertically oriented texile fabric → »Vertical Burning Rate«

Building Materials & Products (-> DIN EN 13501)

  • DIN EN ISO 11925-2 Single flame source test, ignitability when directly exposed to flame
  • DIN 4102 B2 Single flame source test, classification of burning behaviour
  • EN ISO 9239-1 / DIN 4102 P. 14 Reaction to fire tests for floorings, determination of the burning behaviour using a radiant heat source

Electrical Products & Appliances

  • DIN EN ISO 60695-11-10, IEC 60695-11-10 procedure for comparing the relative burning behaviour of vertically or horizontally oriented specimens
  • UL 94 Tests for Flammability of Plastic Materials for Parts in Devices and Appliances
  • Glow wire test to assess the fire hazard according to DIN EN 60695-2-11 /-12 /-13 with DIN EN 60695-2-10 or VDE 0471-2-10 compliant test device

Electric Cables and Wires

  • Evaluation of fire safety of electric cables, according DIN EN 60332-1-2, IEC 60332-1-2 and UL 1581


You find an overview from various measuring and test systems following to DIN, EN, International Electronical Commission, ISO, VDE and VDI Standards.
