Fire Laboratory

The ENSATEC facilities allow you to analyze the behavior of materials and systems through tests of strength and reaction to fire.

ENSATEC holds ENAC accreditation Nº 288/LE634, according to the criteria expressed inEN ISO/IEC 17025 regulations for in situ testing in buildings and it’s Notified body NB1668 for the construction products regulation.

The tests for determining fire resistance of walls and fire-doors are designed to check and test the requirements of solidity and insulation they must meet, as well as ensuring the functionality of the fire-doors self-closing mechanisms which guarantee their safety.

  • Fire resistance tests for doors/windows
  • Fire resistance tests for non-loadbearing elements. Doors and opening enclosures.
  • Fire resistance. Hardware.
  • Fire resistance according to BS regulations.
  • Results extension reports (EXAP).


ENSATEC, accredited by ENAC, has a specialist fire department equipped with the most advanced installations adapted to meet the new European standards in construction materials (Euroclases).

In this area, it is specialized in reaction to fire tests on construction materials of all kinds.
