Skandia Completing Flammability Testing Capabilities

 - September 11, 2013, 9:55 AM

Skandia is completing its repertoire of flammability tests with the addition of heat-release and smoke-density equipment for heat, smoke and toxicity testing capabilities.

“Adding these new tests is the direct response to requests by our global customers,” said Jarod Triplett, v-p of the Davis Junction, Ill. company. “This now makes Skandia one of the few single-source testing facilities that can offer the full complement of services.” The services offered include tests required for any commercial or regional aircraft certified to carry 20 or more passengers.

Currently Skandia is also installing new testing equipment and is completing smoke and heat-release testing certification for its team of FAA-approved designated engineering representatives.

“Once everything is in place, we will be able to write a test plan and do all of the required testing,” said Skandia flammability manager Judy Johnson. She added that at this point, “the vast majority of testing facilities do not offer both planning and testing services. Soon we will be one of the few in the world that can offer customers a totally one-stop solution.”
