Discover more about our flammability and burn test for fabrics expertise

Flammability, heat and burn testing for fabric and materials is an important safety and quality requirement for consumer-facing products and industries within Australia and New Zealand. Testing is critical in ensuring the safety and reliability of products, and measures elements such as ignition rates, burn times and heat reactions to determine the characteristics of a certain product.

For all companies, it is critical to demonstrate compliance with all codes and regulations. Our lab offers a wide range of flammability and burn tests for fabric, textiles, products and materials, providing thorough and accurate results recognised by the relevant industry bodies and authorities.
