Live Fire Testing

Chemguard performs both "top-side" and sprinkler fire tests at our Fire Test Facility, located in Marinette, WI, adjacent to the company headquarters.  A versatile operation, the Fire Test Facility is equipped for a wide variety of fire test standards, including:

  • UL 162
  • FM 5130
  • MIL-F-24385F
  • Large area storage tank fire (LASTFIRE) protocol
  • ICAO
  • U.S. Coast Guard
  • EN1568
  • MSC.1/Circ. 1312

Because the facility is situated next to our manufacturing plant, testing organizations can take samples of fire suppressant chemicals from batches as they come out of the blender, offering a high level of control over samples.

Chemguard also provides a location for local municipal fire departments to train on live fires.
