The Loss Prevention Certification Board - LPCB

The LPCB, run by BRE Global (Building and Research Establishment), is an independent third-party certification body offering one of the most internationally-recognised certifications for fire safety standards. They work extensively with the industry and with government to set standards that ensure the effective performance of fire and security products and services. Their certification demonstrates the products' fitness for purpose, and provides confidence to installers and specifiers that they are using a product which has been specifically designed, tested and approved for use as part of the essential fire safety equipment. To achieve LPCB approval, the products are rigorously tested at BRE's specialist fire testing facility, located in the United Kingdom. 

The testing of the Firetec-branded range for LPCB-approval includes fire-related performance tests including vertical flame tests on bunched cables, circuit integrity testing for resistance to fire, mechanical shock and water spray, smoke emission and acid gas emission tests. This range of cables is also tested for compliance to London Underground's specific flame propagation test requirements.
