Flammability Tests

Protect consumers and your brand with flammability testing from SGS.

In today’s global economy consumer goods must satisfy many differing local regulations and requirements. Failure to comply could result in unexpected costs or worse, harm to your customers and irreparable damage to your brand. At SGS we maintain a global network of laboratories with access to modern flammability test equipment. Our highly trained technicians and auditors work with you to understand and support your existing compliance program, or to create a new one tailored to your business needs.

From building materials to a simple child’s toy our knowledge and testing capabilities will ensure your product is ready for market. Some of the more frequently requested fire properties we test against include flame spread, self ignition, burn rate, smoke density, combustibility, heat release rate and flash over.

Ensure your products are safe, employ our expertise to plan and deploy the appropriate flammability test method and program for your consumer goods. Our testing covers products including (but not exclusively) bedding and mattresses, furniture (materials and filling), clothing, toys, building materials and plastic items.

Our extensive network of technicians and auditors enables a fast and cost effective response to meet your flammability testing needs.
