Dear business partners,

on behalf of FIRES team we would like to thank you for your cooperation in 2022, for your trust and choice of our testing laboratory, product certification body and/or technical assessment body in meeting your needs related to launching your product on the market.


Thanks to your favor, our qualified staff is able to provide you with the necessary tests on your product with the use of reliable and modern test equipment. At the same time we think about innovations, the range of services provided according to your needs, in order to provide you with the best possible service. We care also about your comfort during your stay in our premises. In 2022, we successfully managed to approve the new building of the future laboratory for reaction to fire tests and small flame tests performed according to EN 13823 and EN ISO 11925-2. We plan to open the new premises of this accredited laboratory in the first half of 2023, and we believe that this will also contribute to raising the standard of the services we provide.

Unfortunately, the sector of fire resistance testing of construction products is significantly affected by the current energy crisis, as the consumption of energy is intensive during the tests, for example fire resistance tests or tests of aerodynamic free area of SHEVs. Even though our company has been using photovoltaic panels for the production of electricity for several years and we have also implemented several measures to save energy, our costs are increasing rapidly – especially for the operation of the testing laboratory. Due to the necessity of meeting the conditions of the standards during the tests, in this case it is not possible to implement any cost-saving measures. Because of this reason, we have proceeded to change the prices for selected tests for the year 2023. We assure you that the increase in our prices is proportionate to the increase in our costs and does not apply to those of our services that are not so fundamentally linked to energy consumption. We believe that you will continue to keep us in your favor and we will be grateful for every opportunity to work with you in the coming period.

At the same time, we would like to encourage you to fill out the quality of service survey on our website or to communicate with our managers and experts in case of any questions or suggestions you may have. We value your feedback and will be happy to consider it. On behalf of our entire team, we wish you a good health, a lot of professional and personal successes and we wish you to feel safe and calm in 2023!

Miroslava Rákociová, CEO    and      Štefan Rástocký, COO
