Protecta produces products for the building industry, predominatly within passive fire protection but also other products which have one or more protective properties for fire resistance, sound resistance, water resistance or a combination of these.
In addition, a number of services are given surrounding the products, for example, engineering services, training of installers, assistance with building codes and more. The Protecta group consists of several companies in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and UK that are all owned by Protecta Group AS.
The fire laboratorium including a test furnace used for both vertical and horizontal tests are located in Norway. In principle we can design a product and test it for it’s fire properties in one day. When we are certain of the properties after many rounds of developement, the product is taken to an accredited certified lab for final tests. The certified lab then conducts a number of tests in addition to fire resistance and these will eventually be the basis for a product documentation that usually consists of local type approvals plus international certificates as the European Technical Approval, CE and Certifire for the Middle-East and other parts of Asia.
The chemical laboratorium is located in the UK plant where we have employed chemists and a number of different equipment necessary for both developement of new chemical products but also constant checks of thats being produced so we have full control of the quality delivered to the markets. All the chemical mixes that are produced are tested to right composition and in addition samples of the different production or batch are being kept for future enquires if there should be any questions.
Our manufacturing and packing operation is completely flexible and caters for long and short runs alike. This allows minimal order product runs and ensures a cost effective solution for large organisations testing new or potential markets and products, or smaller companies requiring modest quantities. We are able to offer standard product options as well as provide bespoke solutions for your specific requirement or unique product.
Our innovative engineering department also designs and builds custom machinery to meet the demands and specification of the production team.
All staff at our manufacturing plant are involved in the quality control process. The ISO 9001:2000 standard represents an international benchmark against which the quality status of a company’s management disciplines and systems are assessed. Our award of ISO 9001:2000 standard underlines our commitment to optimum quality standards. As your manufacturer, we recognise that the quality of the product and the service we provide is reflected in your brand experience – therefore, we ensure we meet agreed supply criteria at all times.
