Test your product according to IMO regulations.
Ships that navigate international waters must comply with the standards established in the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS). This convention establishes rules around the construction, equipment, and use of ships in international waters.
In addition, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) establishes the standards of safety, protection, and environmental behavior that the international maritime transport system must observe.
These standards affect different types of naval elements, such as materials, partitions, doors, cables, ducts, covertures, and coatings, among others. These products must comply with the standards established by the SOLAS and IMO in order to be used and installed in a ship.
Our team of engineers studies each project to determine the optimal testing plan. Our services include:
We have our own laboratories and highly specialized and versatile equipment, which allows us to carry out all the tests required for each product. We have specialized equipment, which includes:
The Applus+ Fire Laboratory is certified to test naval elements under the following standards:
Our equipment and certifications allow us to test, among others, the following products:
We own an accredited acoustics laboratory specialized in combined tests of fire protection and acoustics.
It is possible to carry out additional testing focused on the improvement of the acoustic isolation against air noise and impacts.
The Oil & Gas sector, as with the naval sector, has a very strong focus on the testing of construction elements. It is for this reason that we offer testing services according to standard EN 1363-1 and 2, and UL 1709 to analyze the element’s behavior in a real-fire scenario.
