This January, Spain’s national highways agency (Asociación Nacional de Carreteras) organised the seventh road-tunnel symposium in Barcelona. Applus+ Laboratories, a member of the agency’s board, had its own stand at the symposium, which is Spain’s leading event in this field. Applus+ showcased the services of its fire laboratory in Asturias (Applus+ TST), which specialises in full-scale tunnel fire tests.
The Applus+ TST technological centre boasts the only testing tunnel of its kind in Europe, carrying out tests on ventilation and smoke-extraction systems as well as providing specialist training for firefighters and other emergency-service teams.
Applus+ also offers a wide range of testing and certification services to manufacturers of construction and fire-protection products:
- Fire resistance, reaction-to-fire and thermodynamic behaviour tests
- Full-scale fire testing of tunnels, facades, coating systems and fire-retardant paints
- Certification and market access services (CE marking and the Applus+ Fire Safety mark)
- Tunnel fire safety training
