New large-scale furnace for fire testing at Applus+ Laboratories

The new furnace makes the Applus+ Barcelona fire laboratory one of the world’s biggest fire resistance testing laboratories
The Applus+ Laboratories fire-testing laboratory in Bellaterra (Barcelona) boasts a new large-scale cubic furnace for use in fire resistance tests. The furnace’s dimensions are 4x4 metres for horizontal enclosures and 3x4 metres for vertical enclosures. With this new furnace, Applus+ has six furnaces at its Bellaterra technological centre, making it one of the biggest fire resistance testing laboratories in the world.
The furnace entered service this July, with a portfolio of international projects for testing large-scale items. It is set up to work with any type of heating curve in order to meet the requirements of the international testing standards (EN, ISO, BS, UL and ASTM).
Applus+ Laboratories’ fire safety experts carry out a study for each project to identify the best route to approval and certification for each product, in order to achieve international market access.
Applus+ has various fire testing laboratories in Spain and offers a wide range of testing services internationally, both in the laboratory and at real scale, in the open air or in a tunnel.
In the field of fire protection, Applus+ serves multiple industrial sectors including construction, marine, energy and nuclear.
