Research Engineering Development Façade Consultants Limited (RED) was founded in 1996 and was the first laboratory in Hong Kong dedicated to independent quality assurance and testing services for curtain wall and fire resistance systems as well as fire proofing materials in building construction. For over twenty years, RED has provided specialist third-party consulting and testing services to architects, developers and manufacturers across a wide portfolio. RED are among the foremost consultants in the region for full scale curtain wall and fire resistance testings and it is accredited under HOKLAS as a fire and facade testing laboratory since 1997. 

In 2014, RED was inducted as an associate member of the European Group of Organizations for Fire Testing, Inspection and Certification (EGOLF) and is the first fire testing laboratory which is credited as an associate member of EGOLF in the Far East Asia Region. Since it was established in 1988, EGOLF has contributed widely to both improving the level of personal fire safety and minimizing the losses and damage caused by fire in the environment through the quality service among its members. With few national fire groups in Asia concerning the development of harmonized test methods or standardizing testing quality, RED believes that EGOLF provides a platform for laboratories in the region to improve their quality of service and to promote research and development in fire testing. In this visit, RED will present the essentials of fire tests, with a demo fire test on a glazed system.
