Electric cable testing

We test electrical cables for flame propagation and fire retardant properties as required under standards.

We can conduct testing of electrical cables to various Australian and international standards.

Tests include:

  • fire testing of cables to AS/NZS 1660.5.1, IEC60332-3 and BS 4066: part 3.
  • smoke density testing of materials to BS 6853, annex D.
  • smoke density tests to AS/NZS 1660.5.2, IEC 61034 and BS 7622:Part 2.
  • dedicated facilities for these tests include a fire tower and a 3m3 smoke chamber for tests to AS 1660.5.1 and AS 1660.5.2 and related overseas and international standards.

We may also be able to test to other standards or carry out similar tests if required.
