Complete reconstruction of the fire resistance testing chambers took place

Dear partner!

We would like to inform you about our recent activities which could lead to improvement of quality of our services.

Full reconstruction of horizontal testing furnaces and vertical testing furnace (3 x 3) m

Delivering of quality and trustworthy service is considered in our company to be the most important. In fire resistance testing area, this aim is essentially influenced by excellent technical condition of all our equipment.

It is a matter of course that we regularly do technical maintenance, safety maintenance and calibration of all our equipment. We do these activities systematically in compliance with our Quality manual. In 2011 we do repair work above the scope of our common maintenance – we do full reconstruction of our three testing furnaces.

We have already successfully finished full reconstruction of testing furnace No. 2 (testing furnace for fire resistance testing of horizontal building constructions). This testing furnace has already been put into usual operation. Next we are going to do the reconstruction of the second horizontal testing furnace and our first vertical testing furnace with dimensions of opening (3 x 3) m.

All the reconstruction works should be finished in December 2011 and we tried to schedule them in such a way that they would affect and restrict the operation of the fire resistance testing laboratory for the necessary time only. We would be glad to provide carrying out of the fire resistance tests for our customers as soon as possible and without delay also in this year. We believe that we manage to cope with all reconstruction works during normal operation of fire resistance testing laboratory and our effort will be rewarded by satisfaction of our customers with quality of our services!

Our new equipment

In addition to systematic maintenance of our equipment, at the beginning of this year we purchased new equipment, which – as we hope – will contribute to better and faster provision of our services to customers.

We have changed our previous loader for the new one, loader LOCUST L 1203 Telspeed, with efficient telescopic arm which can be equipped with a wide range of attachments. Its great advantage is gear with two speeds (all the time without need to stop) which allows faster movement and work of the machine.

We purchased also the new cooler, which we exploit mainly when testing fire resistance of ducts and smoke control dampers.
