Meeting global standards

Exova Warringtonfire offers industry-leading services in hardware testing and certification of all architectural hardware, including doors, windows and ironmongery. Our specialist facilities provide hardware testing services which include door hardware and operational testing, quality control, durability, corrosion resistance, U-value calculations, UV and vibration testing.

Innovative manufacturers continually strive to improve security. We support that innovation.

Our teams are highly experienced experts in their specific hardware testing product areas.

  • Controlled door closers to EN1154
  • Electrically powered hold open devices to EN1155
  • Door Coordinator Devices to EN1158
  • Mechanically operated locks to EN12209
  • Electromechanically operated locks to EN14846

Our hardware testing can also be performed to the following European and British standards:

  • Cylinders for Locks to EN1303
  • Lever handles and knob furniture to EN1906
  • Flushbolts to EN12051

Hardware testing at the heart of a securer future

The Police initiative “Secured by Design” is reinforced by Warrington Certification’s CERTISECURE, an independent third party certification scheme continually updated on the latest criminal methods. Our knowledge and influence gives customers the confidence that their products meet all performance requirements and are fit for modern security threats. CERTISECURE is not available in the Asia Pacific region.

We help drive change and are active contributors to a number of hardware groups within the UK and Europe. These include Trade Associations such as the Door and Hardware Federation, the Council for Aluminium in Buildings, the Architectural Specialist Door Manufacturers Association, and Chairmanship of both the European Group CEN/TC33/WG4, and the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers.

By engaging with trade bodies, we are at the heart of change and in the unique position to relay first-hand information to our customers.

The Exova Warringtonfire operation at Willenhall has expanded to house the Door and Window Centre Of Excellence in its own dedicated doors and windows testing facility.
