Structural Testing

Structural testing can be to established standards to demonstrate adequate performance or may be more customized for new products during development or for certification prior to product launch. Full size structures may require testing in a design by test situation or in the development of novel designs or to demonstrate that an existing building can continue to meet modern standards after a change of use.

As a UKAS-accredited testing laboratory (No. 0013), we can test to national, European and international standards. We can test materials, products and structures in-house or on-site and often design customized testing programmes to test novel products or structural issues which are not covered in current guidelines.


Here are some examples of the types of tests that we carry out on structures:

Lucideon is a Notified Body (NB 1289) under the Construction Products Regulation (EU) 305/2011 for the assessment and verification of construction products. Lucideon maintains impartial procedures for all work performed as a Notified Body to safeguard its independence.
