Center of Excellence (CoE) Fire Testing of Studer Cables AG

Fire behavior is an important criterion for the use of products with safety-related requirements.


Fire behavior

The fire laboratory (Center of Excellence Fire Testing) of Studer Cables AG tests and evaluates the fire behavior of cable materials and cable products. We carry out the following standardized fire tests:

  • Material testing on plastics/compounds: Limited Oxygen Index (LOI) and Critical Temperature Index (CTI)
  • Product testing: Fire tests on cables and wires (flame resistance, fire propagation, insulation retention, fire resistance).
  • System tests: Testing the functional integrity of electrical cable installations and support systems under fire exposure in accordance with DIN 4102, Part 12.
