Multi-purpose flammability tester

FlexiBurn is our vertical flammability tester. You can use FlexiBurn for testing ease of ignition and the flame spread properties of apparel, curtains, drapes, nightwear, toys, protective clothing, technical fabrics, building and other materials.

For each material, there are applicable British, European or ISO standards, which set out the precise conditions for these very critical tests.

Designed With You In Mind

The position of the gas burner changes according to the standard, so we designed a robotic arm for precise positioning of the burner.

Virtually every method requires a different test frame - regardless of size and pin configuration, our frames are easily interchangeable.

To guide you through the complex world of flammability standards and test methods, we supply a pre-programmed Control Module for our flammability tester.

Curtains and Drapes

Large ignition source

FlexiBurn meets the requirements of BS EN 13772 for curtains and drapes, which evaluates flame spread.

Flammability standards are constantly evolving, so we have future-proofed the instrument.
