Lucideon is Awarded UKAS Accreditation for Frost Resistance Testing of Clay Roof Tiles

Lucideon is pleased to announce that it has been accredited to BS EN 539-2: 2013 by UKAS to test clay roofing tiles for frost resistance.

The testing will be performed on a recently installed frost resistance test rig that has been designed and built to specifically meet the test method requirements of BS EN 539-2: 2013.

Lucideon will remain accredited to the previous test standard (BS EN 539-2: 2006) for frost resistance, to enable the comparison of new tiles with historic data.

Furthermore, Lucideon is the only UKAS accredited laboratory testing clay roofing tiles for frost resistance in the UK.
