Testing

The Aeroworks test lab specializes in Aircraft Interior Fire Property and Mechanical Testing, in accordance with the latest aerospace requirements. In addition, tests can be performed according to OEM specific test procedures. With over 30 years of aircraft interior related testing and manufacturing experience, our solution orientated and certified staff will cooperate with your design and engineering teams to evaluate and interpret the test results to optimize your design.

In July of 2016, our smoke and heat release chambers were modernized with the installation of state-of-the art equipment supplied by Marin Engineering (USA). Our test bench, flammability and conditioning chamber have been updated in previous years as well. With a fully modernized test laboratory, we are ready to assist you with your testing needs.

Since September 30th 2009, the Dutch authorities no longer issue approval certificates for fire properties testing due to a change in European Aviation Regulations. All testing is completed under our AS9100 certificate and the responsibility of EASA DOA organizations. All test results are issued with a test certificate.
