Roxtec is growing in several different industries. In order to meet the increasing demand for product testing and pave the way for continuous growth, the company is building a new fire test lab in Karlskrona, Sweden. It will be ready in 2018.

Roxtec sealing system

The Roxtec sealing system is used all over the world to protect life and secure operations. Owners and contractors within everything from shipbuilding and construction to renewable energy rely on the seals that are tested and certified to protect against multiple risk factors, including fire.

“We see a lot of opportunities for our cable and pipe transits,” says CEO Mikael Helmerson. “We are growing in many sectors at the same time and keep on adding safety solutions for use in new applications. This intensive development makes us perform more fire protection tests than ever before. With the new fire lab, we increase our capacity and prepare ourselves for further growth.”

Focus on safety and sustainability

Roxtec provides safety seals for projects requiring quality and reliability, and the 540-squaremeter two-floor fire lab will reflect this in all aspects. It will be built at the Roxtec global headquarters close to the material test lab and the product development and production facilities. It will help ensure an efficient work flow, a good working environment and a sustainable testing procedure.

Third-party witnessed tests

The lab will enable Roxtec to set up tests according to most national and international standards.

“We perform fire tests in order to develop our transits and ensure quality, but also to be able to invite customers and certifying authorities to witness tests with specific products for specific applications,” says Ulf Hildingsson, manager technical and commercial support at Roxtec.
