Product Development

As regular contributors to industry guidance and technical specifications, we remain at the forefront of innovation and development. This  makes us a perfect partner for product testing and standards.

Testing procedures and design guidance

We have been involved in testing procedures and design guidance for over two decades. This, combined with our ongoing partnerships with academic institutions, accredited test houses and trade associations, provides us with a unique ability to offer specialist advice to consultants, contractors and manufacturers.

Accurate data drives forward innovation

It is imperative that clients, engineers, and regulators have independent evidence of product performance.

Where design guidance and testing protocols are new or evolving, consultants may not be fully aware of appropriate design requirements and procedures. Our expertise can provide helpful insights and inform continuous improvements.
