Firestop Research, Development and Testing

Where creating the exceptional is expected

Every day at our research, development and testing centers in Europe, North America and Asia, Hilti engineers and experts are tinkering, testing and imagining new ways to make your work easier, safer and more productive. We work directly with customers about the challenges they face and work to solve them with better, smarter products. We work with various universities and independent research laboratories to tackle the most challenging technical problems. In other words, we never stop improving—because you never stop working.

We make and research our own leading-edge products

At Hilti, we like to do things differently. We create technologies, software and services that clearly stand out from the rest. We run our own research and design labs, working with top technical universities and partners all over the world. We make our own products in Hilti factories and with external partners, making sure all our products match the same high quality and standards. And we are a privately owned group of companies, founded in 1941 by Martin Hilti and still held by the Hilti family today. So we are looking to build for the future and not for short term gain.

In-house testing for international approvals

We conduct thorough firestop tests in our in-house lab, following the most stringent international EN, ASTM/UL test standards and much more. Additional tests – including movement, seismic, acoustics and environmental – are carried out continuously on our pre-engineered, internationally approved solutions.
