First commercial flammability test laboratory in the Middle East


Etihad Airways Engineering and Lantal Textiles have launched what is claimed to be the first commercial flammability test laboratory in the Middle East.

The facility is designed for regional customers within the aviation industry, including VIP operators, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) organisations, design and production organisations, as well as cabin interior suppliers.

Located inside the Etihad Airways Engineering facility adjacent to Abu Dhabi International Airport, the new laboratory will provide services including flammability tests, seat cushion tests, heat release and smoke tests.

The facility will conform to ISO 17025 quality management standards, and all testing will be conducted in accordance with the Airworthiness Regulations FAR / CS 25.853.
