TIMCO receives new certification

In August, TIMCO Aerosystems, a division of the Group in the U.S. that specialises in aircraft cabin solutions, received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for flammability testing by its product-testing laboratory at its Wallburg, North Carolina facility. With the new certification, TIMCO will perform vertical and horizontal burn-testing to validate compliance with FAA flammability standards for customer products such as aircraft seats. The robust, fully-certified laboratory will enable TIMCO to meet increasingly complex product requirements on ever-tighter delivery timelines.


In addition to flammability testing, TIMCO is also certified to perform static testing and dynamic testing on a fully-configured test sled. TIMCO has Designated Engineering Representatives (DER) on staff to witness all FAA-regulated tests and to provide consultation on general product testing issues.
