ArcWear is pleased to announce the introduction of expedited testing services in 2021. Available expedited services will include Arc Flash Panel Testing to ASTM F1959/IEC 61482-1-1 Procedure A, testing for NFPA 2112 Certification, and many other textile tests, including vertical flame testing to ASTM D6413, offered in-house by ArcWear.
Arc Flash Panel Testing
Arc flash panel testing to ASTM F1959 and IEC 61482-1-1 Procedure A, performed at our Kinectrics High Current Lab in Toronto, has long been our most popular testing service. This service has always been carried out during our normally scheduled test week each month. Additionally, our clients know that testing is typically performed on a first-come, first-served basis. In months with exceptionally high volume, it’s possible for standard projects to be delayed to the following month’s test week.
With the new expedited service, clients will receive guaranteed testing completion within 2 weeks of receipt of samples. Space for expedited service will be limited each month. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
NFPA 2112 Certification Testing
Full NFPA 2112 testing is quite extensive and lead times in other labs are typically upwards of 3 months or more. While our clients typically enjoy turnaround times of approximately 6 weeks, there are times when a faster turn is necessary. With the new expedited service, clients will receive guaranteed testing completion within 4 weeks of receipt of samples. Space for expedited services will be limited. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
As as reminder, NFPA 2112 requires full third-party certification, which involves quality audits of manufacturing sites. While ArcWear’s ISO 17025-Accredited testing lab in Louisville, KY produces data that is accepted by Certification Organizations for NFPA 2112 Certification, the certification itself will still come from that certification organization.
Other Expedited Textile Testing
ArcWear offers a wide range of small-scale textile tests in its ISO 17025-Accredited testing labs in Louisville, KY. Turnaround time varies by test method, but the majority of our test requests are typically fulfilled within 2 weeks. With the new expedited service, clients will receive guaranteed testing completion within 48 hours of receipt of samples for most tests. Space for expedited services will be limited. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
