4Drive & Aviation opens fire testing facility in Poland


4Drive & Aviation, a Poland-based specialist in upholstery sewing, seat covers, leather upholstery renovation and other interior related projects under Part 21G approval has opened a new testing facility in Lodz. The facility offers fire and mechanical test services for the aviation, automotive, railway and marine industries, as well as training, project and test advisory services and the development of new test methods and machinery.

The company says it is the first facility in Poland to be focused on aircraft interior fire testing. Capabilities include performing tests such as vertical, horizontal, degree Bunsen burner, fire containment of waste stowage compartments such as meal, entrée and waste carts, as well as the full-scale testing of monuments. Heat release, smoke density and oil burner tests facilities are due to be added within the next couple of months.

Jakub Gałkieiwcz, laboratory director at 4Drive & Aviation stated, “Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, an era of increased collaboration with industries is knocking on our doors. Only teamwork provides the strength to stand firm during the crisis and will help us rise back to the desired levels of operations as quickly as possible. This is why our facilities are aiming to work with as many labs, designers, production organisations and manufacturers as possible from different places and from different industries around the world.”
