Fullex and UAP are making all sorts of magic since uniting last year – and now they are making music. The Fullex and UAP Unison showcases the talents of their testing machines, and on more then just their products, but on our ears! Check it out!
The team at UAP and Fullex have taken testing up a notch, showcasing exactly what these fabulous machines can do. Its a collaboration of work from machines in the Fullex UKAS Accredited Testing Centre and UAP’s own onsite testing facilities.
Fullex and UAP Testing Services
Here at Fullex we have our very own onsite UKAS accredited testing laboratory No.2259 meaning we can offer full PAS24 testing for residential doors and windows. Fullex testing services offer analytical testing for development purposes as well as full testing for certification. All tests are carried out by our highly experienced team of test engineers.
UKAS and PAS 24
UKAS stands for ‘The United Kingdom Accreditation Service’ and it is the national accreditation body, recognised by the government, in the UK. UKAS assesses and oversees any organisation that provides certification, testing, inspection and calibration services, against internationally agreed standards.
“If your business requires the services of certification bodies, testing or calibration laboratories, or inspection bodies, selecting a UKAS accredited supplier is an essential tool for decision-making and risk management. Using accredited testing, inspection and certification carried out in compliance with best practices can limit product failure and down time, and control manufacturing costs.” – UKAS
To get PAS24 certification a UKAS accredited laboratory must be used. As a supplier you can reassure your customers that the certification has been attained from and the products tested in a lab which complies with the agreed standards and can be easily recognised for that.
Fullex testing centre is UKAS accredited laboratory number 2259.
PAS 24 Testing
PAS24 provides a method for assessing the security against authorised forced entry from an opportunist burglar. The test is meant for ‘doorsets and windows intended to offer a level of security suitable for dwellings and other buildings exposed to comparable risk.’
The direct load and manual intervention testing in our lab provide a method of testing the security of the product against the PAS24 testing standards.
UAP Onsite Testing
UAP also provide their own testing including salt spray testing for corrosion resistance, UV light tests for coating durability, cylinder and handle cycle testes, letter plate flap tests and tensile strength testing to measure how strong products such as doors chains are. Experts from both UAP and Fullex are also available to advise anyone with testing enquiries.
UAP and Fullex really are proving to be in complete unison – which is music to our ears!
