Kiwa Gastec is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory (No.0692) for product testing. We provide solid fuel and biomass appliance testing, controls and components testing, and biomass and mineral fuel testing.
Biomass and solid fuel domestic appliances must be tested by an accredited test lab to prove they comply with the standard PD 6434: 1969 before they can be sold, installed or used in a Smoke Control Area.
The scope of the PD 6434 test includes appliance size, type and fuel, as well as testing the design features relating to smoke reduction. Appliances submitted for exemption under the Clean Air Act, 1956 will usually also be submitted to Defra at the same time, for inclusion on the 'Approved Solid Fuel Appliances' list.
The service for our gas testing has been excellent. James and Shoki are very approachable and helpful.Appliance testing customer
