Why Thermal Testing Is Important
HPC Fire Inspired Outdoor gas fire pits are constantly exposed to moisture, whether from rain, dew, or humidity. This exposure makes corrosion resistance a critical consideration. Using proper materials is imperative for the safety and longevity of the products. Therefore, through thermal testing, HPC has applied this critical knowledge to all of our product offerings.
Outdoor temperatures and the heat cycle of the appliance can vary significantly, leading to thermal expansion and contraction of materials. This phenomenon can cause stress on the components of a fire pit, or effect the sizing of the appliance, potentially leading to structural issues. This expansion and contraction must be understood to specify opening sizes for our appliances. Thermal testing helps HPC understand how materials respond to temperature fluctuations. Through continuous improvement HPC’s engineers are able to design fire pits that can withstand the rigors of changing weather conditions without compromising sizing or performance.
Ensuring the safety of HPC Fire Inspired’s outdoor gas fire pits is paramount. Thermal testing is an integral part of safety compliance, helping us identify potential concerns such as issues related to heat resistance or corrosion and how it relates to the materials used in the design of HPC’s fire features. HPC not only meets regulatory CSA standards for rigorous testing, but exceeds these standards and provides internal component and whole appliance testing prior to every design being packed and shipped to our consumers. This ensures the quality and integrity of every HPC Fire design.
HPC’s designs are not only safe and functional, but every design offers an appealing aesthetic that enhances your outdoor entertaining space. Thermal testing allows us to strike a balance between safety, durability, and design. HPC’s engineers thoughtfully select materials that meet the demands of the designs; offering manufacturers and consumers products that are high-quality and priced reasonably.
HPC works diligently from the point of the conception of the design to testing every appliance ensuring the highest quality for our consumers. Consumers are often bombarded by an over saturation of options. Partnering with HPC gives consumers peace of mind. When consumers invest in an HPC design they are getting specially curated creations that exceed industry standards.
HPC strives for continuous improvements and rigorously evaluates materials under various temperature conditions to ensure that our products are not only aesthetically pleasing but also durable, safe, and able to withstand the challenges posed by outdoor environments.
