About Us

We were founded in 1995 as a Façade Consultancy firm in Dubai that provides technical reviews and inspections of building facades. In response to a market need for more robust curtain wall performance verification, we began offering on-site testing services. We opened a large curtain wall testing laboratory in 2001, where full-size façade mock-ups can be built and evaluated for weathertightness and structural safety. In 2007, we expanded into fire testing by adding the region's first furnace for fire resistance testing, enabling manufacturers and contractors to develop and comply with fire testing code requirements worldwide.

Our Steiner tunnel, added in 2011, was the first in Europe and the Middle East. Complemented later on by equipment to test for BS EN standards, we were able to support the market by offering testing for reaction to fire.

In 2015 we became the region's first local Certification Body for passive fire protection products. By 2016, we had added capabilities to certify and test full façade systems for fire propagation, making us a one-stop shop for fire compliance services. Presently, we have offices in the UK and Qatar and Testing Facilities in the UAE and Saudi Arabia. Our team of experts will be happy to assist you wherever you are.
