Blankfort carry out acoustic testing with Chiltern Dynamics

Blankfort doors, from Baillargeon of Quebec, have been tested by BM TRADA Group companies since 1995, although Baillargeon’s UK technical consultant Bob Williamson has been using the group testing and consultancy facilities for more than 30 years.

Most recently, Blankfort fire doors have undergone acoustic testing in Chiltern Dynamics’ new facility, adding to fire resistance testing with Chiltern International Fire, security testing with Chiltern Dynamics, fire door certification under the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme and consultancy on specific characteristics of timber with TRADA Technology.’

As Bob Williamson explained, ‘It’s useful that everything is under one roof. It certainly makes the transfer of information smoother and now that acoustic testing is also offered, it will be perfectly feasible to carry out acoustic, mechanical and ultimately fire resistance testing on exactly the same specimen. In other words, every technical requirement that an internal doorset might have to attain for public or private sector projects can be undertaken with the BM TRADA Group.’

He appreciates the fact that clients are actively encouraged to attend their test. ‘No test is ever a failure, even if the outcome is not what you expected. You learn so much about your product by watching the test and discussing performance with the test engineers, sharing their knowledge and experience, in the utmost confidence.’
