Because fire resistance test reports relate only to the design configuration that was originally tested and because it is impractical to test all potential variations of fire resistant elements for all applications, professional solutions are often necessary to establish whether any variations to the tested product are acceptable. To cater for such situations, we can produce a Product Assessment Report.
A Product Assessment Report (also known as a Global Assessment Report) is a desk based study, applying expert knowledge to the results taken from a series of fire resistance tests of a particular design configuration to either:
- Extend the coverage of existing fire test evidence to enable the development of new designs or design variations without the need for additional testing
- Conduct a design performance evaluation of an unusual or bespoke construction that may be impractical to test, conducted on a project specific basis (also known as a Job Specific Assessment).
Our team of experts produce Product Assessment Reports of fire resistance performance for Building Regulation compliance based on 35 years of experience and where appropriate, the agreed principles and resolutions of the Fire Test Study Group.
