SIRIM Berhad, an industrial research and technology organization under the purview of Malaysia’s Ministry of Investment Trade and Industry, can now conduct UL Solutions-witnessed fire door testing at its laboratory in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia, in accordance with UL 10B, the Standard for Fire Tests of Door Assemblies, UL 10C, the Standard for Positive Pressure Fire Tests of Door Assemblies, and ULC-S104, the Standard Method for Fire Tests of Door Assemblies.
"Fire doors are essential to the success of passive fire protection systems. Demonstrating product conformity can help fire door manufacturers build trust with their customers and other key stakeholders," said Jack Xu, director and regional general manager, Asia, in the Built Environment group at UL Solutions. "Future Witnessed Test Data Program visits will continue to confirm that SIRIM’s fire testing laboratory in Shah Alam is well-equipped to provide reliable and accurate test data to UL Solutions. By collaborating with SIRIM, we are working toward a safer world by enabling fire door testing and enhancing market access in Southeast Asia."
The WTDP enables SIRIM’s testing at customer or third-party test facilities to be witnessed by UL Solutions personnel. UL Solutions assessed SIRIM’s fire testing laboratory in Shah Alam under the WTDP by conducting a UL 10C fire endurance and hose stream test to determine if the facility meets program requirements.
