CSA Group says the new facility will also offer testing for windows and doors
CSA Group has opened a new testing and certification laboratory in Edmonton, Alta.
The new facility specializes in testing and certification for hazardous locations, such as equipment used in oil, gas, mining, marine and fertilizer production. The expansion doubles the testing capacity of the previous lab to provide enhanced service for the increasing needs of explosive atmosphere testing and certification, not only in Alberta, but across North America.
“CSA Group is a world leader in explosive atmosphere testing, and our services for hazardous location testing and certification are growing to meet the needs of our oil and gas clients in Alberta and throughout Canada,” says Nashir Jiwani, VP of CSA Group in Canada. “We are also committed to developing leading standards and building world-class facilities to meet the needs of our clients around the world.”
. There will now be 37 different tests offered for windows and doors, including environmental factors, durability and energy efficiency.
“CSA Group’s state-of-the art windows and doors lab specializes in testing new windows and doors to North American fenestration requirements,” says Jiwani. “Manufacturers will be required to have their products tested to these standards under the updated National Building Code.”
