Fire safety concepts

IFAB provides fire safety concepts for rolling stock that include fire risk analysis and measures against identified risks. A holistic fire safety concept also includes evacuation aspects. The objective for fire safety concepts is to have a comprehensive solution that provides the best technical value for the clients. IFAB has specialised experimental knowledge from fire tests that leads to a more realistic assessment of different fire safety technologies than with theoretically based approaches.
IFAB is also able to optimise fire protection arrangements in relation to operational aspects. Cost-effective compliance with regulations and requirements is an essential element in IFAB´s integrated fire safety concepts. IFAB´s aim is to achieve the required level of safety with reasonable costs and moderate impact on vehicle design.
