Exova Test Workshop
Exova open day shows building officials why it is important to test fire protection under real conditions.
At the Exova fire testing lab in Melbourne Australia 70 building officials witnessed what happens when you subject a fire feature to a realistic test.
Many in the industry would adhere to the theory that a solid-core door was equal to a 30 minute fire door, the reality of the situation was that when a 30 minute fire door and a solid-core were tested together it showed without a shadow of double fully tested doors stood up to what they were designed to do, the solid-core door only lasted six minutes. This shows the importance of testing under realistic conditions.
