Fire and smoke tests
Fire and smoke tests forms one of the key areas for IFAB. IFAB’s experienced team has already carried out more than 200 full scale fire tests in test tunnels. These cover various scenarios with flammable liquids or demanding solid fires. The fire tests have been part of international research projects such as SOLIT and UPTUN or related to private operators like Eurotunnel or Tunnel Mont Blanc. IFAB’s mobile tunnel testing measurement system is the largest in the world, and makes fire tests possible in various locations as needed. IFAB also possesses specialised equipment for carrying out smoke tests with either hot or cold smoke, giving experimental evidence on the performance of smoke management systems.
