IFAB – Institute for applied fire safety research

IFAB is a specialized fire consultancy, research and engineering office with the headquarter located in Berlin, Germany. We work internationally and advise, design, plan and simulate for installers, builders, insurance companies, authorities and subcontractors of engineering offices. Beside the classic fire safety consultancy work, such as fire safety concepts, expertise service and fire safety planning, our experts deal with questions and solutions that are not covered by the recognized rules of technology. IFAB has knowledge of the state of art and has a background that is strongly relying on experimental fire testing, which distinguishes us from most other fire consultancy and engineering offices. We are specialized in industrial applications, rolling stock, road/rail tunnels and metro stations.

WHY IS IFAB DIFFERENT?

We are specialized in fire protection research, testing and consulting. IFAB knows fire in practice and is there-fore different from other organizations that only design on a theoretical basis. Our approach is to utilise the information we have collected from numerous fire tests to ensure the most effective fire safety solutions technically. Therefore, results from CFD simulations are validated by experimental data base.

IFAB is an accredited test laboratory according to DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025.

The company mission is to provide innovative and effective fire protection services to clients at reasonable cost. IFAB is eager for challenges; the tougher the request from a client, the more determined IFAB is to solve it:

  • We are ASKING
  • We are ANALYSING
  • We are ANSWERING
