Special Tests according to Your Specifications

Due to the flexible accreditation according to Cat. II, ift Rosenheim is able to develop new test methods or modify existing ones to meet your individual requirements. Furthermore, due to the unique constellation that ift Rosenheim, with its entire testing experience and flexible laboratories, also bundles the test equipment construction ift MessTec and the ift calibration laboratory, special tests of all kinds can also be realised.

For your very special test task, ift Rosenheim designs and builds the required test facilities or extensions to existing test facilities. If possible, standards or guideline specifications serve as a basis. However, special tests can also be designed and carried out directly according to ustomer specifications. However, the basis is always a reproducible test setup, calibrated measuring and test equipment and comprehensive documentation. On request, these special test facilities can also be purchased by the client according to the test.

Contact us and let us talk through your very specific assignments.

National Technical Test Certificates

National technical test certificates are issued for unregulated construction products and types of construction, the use of which does not serve the fulfillment of significant requirements for the safety of structural installations. The certificates are granted by accredited testing bodies.

Note: Pursuant to § 21a paragraph 2 sentence 2 of Prototype Building Regulation in conjunction with § 21 paragraph 6 of Prototype Building Regulation and the corresponding provisions of the regional building codes, ift Rosenheim is obliged to publish the National technical test certificates according to subject matter and essential content. ift Rosenheim complies with this publication obligation by sending the certificates to the Fraunhofer Informationszentrum Raum und Bau (irb).

irb publishes the certificates in its database on the website under the section "BZP - Bauaufsichtliche Zulassungen und Prüfzeugnisse” (technical approvals and test certificates).
