Testing Facilities

The Speedline range of dry lining and ceiling systems have been independently tested or assessed by accredited laboratories.

This website comprises of a collation of data carried out using a number of different testing facilities.

Facilities used:

  • BRE Garston – Fire, Acoustic & Mechanical
  • BTC East Leake – Fire & Acoustic
  • Salford University – Acoustic & Mechanical
  • Strathclyde University – Mechanical
  • WFRC Warrington – Fire
  • Aycliffe Research – Fire
  • SRL Sudbury – Acoustic
  • BM TRADA – Fire

Please contact [email protected] for further information on the individual test or to see where the test or assessment was carried out quoting the system reference.

All test data and system specifications are for systems constructed with materials and components as shown.  The inclusion of other components without prior approval or constructed on site contrary to this website will invalidate test certification and system performance.
