DONSTROYTEST LTD. REGIONAL CENTRE FOR SAFETY TESTING OF BUILDING MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES

Certificate of accreditation # 2 1125 of 29.04.2013 г.
Certificate of attestation # ВЛ-071/2011 of 11.04.2011.
License of State Service for Emergency Situations of Ukraine АЕ #184327 of 15.03.2013.

Carrying out of fire tests of building structures, products and materials for the purpose of classification in accordance with Ukrainian national construction regulation DBN V.1.1-7-2002 and DBN V.1.2-7-2008 that specify the key requirements for fire safety as related to products, buildings and structures that are specified in "Technical Regulations on the Safety of Buildings and Facilities” approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine #1764 dated 20.12.2006.

determination of the fire resistance limits of the following building elements:

  • divisions and coverings of buildings and structures, including those made of cast reinforced concrete - indicators REI, RE as per DSTU B V.1.1-20:2007;
  • load-bearing walls, self-supporting walls and walls of stairwells - REI indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-19:2007, W criterion can be used additionally for the glassed elements;
  • non-load-bearing walls both external and internal (partitions) - Е, EI indicators as per DSTU B V.1.1-15:2007, W criterion can be used additionally for the glassed elements;
  • flights of stairwells and staircase landings- R indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-23:2009;
  • beams and collar beams including those made of cast reinforced concrete - R indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-13:2007;
  • columns with fire protection system or made of cast reinforced concrete - R indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-14:2007;
  • balconies and corridors - R indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-26:2010;

determination of the fire resistance limits of:

  • doors, gates, hatches - E, EI indicators as per DSTU B V.1.1-6-2001; for the elements to which no insulating effect I requirements are specified, EW criterion is used;
  • air ducts (air pipes) - E, EI indicators as per DSTU B V.1.1-16:2007, if leakage is limited, S indicator is determined additionally;
  • electric and optical cables, cable fittings, cable lines - P, PH indicators as per DSTU B V.1.1-11:2005;
  • suspended ceilings - RI indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-9:2003;
  • cable passages and passages of plastic pipes - Е, EI indicators as per DSTU B V.1.1-8:2003;
  • fire windows - EI indicator, W criterion can be used additionally;
  • fire and smoke curtains (screens) - EI, EW indicator;
  • fire ventilation valves - E, EI indicators, if leakage is limited, S indicator is determined additionally.

determination of fire resistance performance of fire-resisting finishes and veneers of:

  • structural metals - R indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-17:2007;
  • load-bearing building reinforced concrete structures - REI indicator as per DSTU B V.1.1-30:2012.

determination of an indicator of fire propagation along building structures:

  • along vertical structures (columns, exterior and interior walls, partitions, walls of stairwells, fire barriers) - M indicator as per DBN V. 1.1.7-2002;
  • along horizontal structures (collar beams, beams, divisions, flights of the stairs and stairs landings, suspended ceilings, air pipes, pipelines) - M indicator as per DBN V. 1.1.7-2002.

determination of the coefficient of intumescence of fire-resistant intumescent (intumescent) coatings:

  • tests to determine the volume coefficient of intumescence – Kvol indicator as per DSTU-N-P B V.1.1-29:2010;
  • tests to determine the linear coefficient of intumescence – Kl indicator as per DSTU-N-P B V.1.1-29:2010.

determination of a group of fire retardant efficiency of fire-retardant materials for the wood:

  • determination of a group of fire retardant efficiency of fire-retardant coatings and impregnation materials - Group I, II as per GOST 16363-98, GOST 30219-95

determination of a group of not easily combustible and flammable solid substances and materials:

  • flammability assessment of non-metallic materials - of a group of not easily combustible, flammable, hardly inflammable, mean inflammable, highly flammable as per GOST 12.1.044-89.

The fire tests are carried out as per standardized procedures on full-sized specimens of building structures using 4 main furnaces:

  • fire test furnace for framed structures;
  • fire test furnace for enclosing building structures and shipboard structures;
  • fire test furnace for divisions, coverings and fragments of buildings and structures;
  • fire test furnace for structural products;
Dimensions of the heating chamber of fire furnaces enable the tests to be carried out to determine fire resistance of building structures on four specimens simultaneously to save time and cut the cost for our Customers.
