The performance of walls, columns, floors and other building elements when exposed to fire conditions is of extreme importance in ensuring safety to both the public and neighbouring structures. In order to acquire information on this performance, it is necessary to measure the fire-resistive properties of the materials and assemblies in question.
The FTT Fire Resistance Test Furnace for vertical and Horizontal Test Specimens is the apparatus needed to evaluate the fire resistance of a horizontal or vertical construction assembly, column, or support, and provides a method of quantifying the ability of products such as doors and dampers, and building materials to withstand exposure to high temperatures. This is done by evaluating a number of performance elements such as; the load-bearing capacity, the ability to provide fire containment and the thermal transmittance of the materials and systems.
The unique ability of the FTT Furnace to test both Horizontal and Vertical test specimens provides the most efficient way to maximise your test equipment budget.
Lifting and Restraint Frames for Test Specimens Two units of Frames are provided for mounting vertical specimens and another two units for horizontal specimens. The refractory lining is made of pre-cast refractory blocks anchored to the steel frame. These frames are non-load-bearing frames. A separate customised lifting frame with two side hooks is provided to lift the specimen restraint frame to the furnace. This allows easy placement of the vertical and horizontal restraint frames on the furnace.
