Product Testing/Evaluations

Looking at Product DetailDoor Testing

Home accidents and injuries may be due to defective design, materials, misuse, human error, unanticipated use, or various combinations of these factors. SEAL laboratories have been involved in testing consumer products for manufacturers, investigating accidents, and finding out how and why failures and injuries occur for more than twenty years. SEAL utilizes ANSI, ASTM, SAE, NFPA, NEC, IEEE, OSHA, and other applicable standards
and procedures when investigating accidents or performing testing of consumer products. For more information on home injuries go to CPSC.

Product Testing and Safety Evaluations
SEAL maintains laboratory and shop facilities for product testing, safety analysis, and product evaluations and product safety listing. For forensic purposes we can duplicate the conditions and factors that caused an accident or failure in a wide variety of products or devices.Our FEA capabilities also make it possible to build virtual parts in a computer environment to test the design of a product to determine a failure point. SEAL performs testing for product safety listing to ANSI, ASTM, OSHA, and other national and international standards.
