Fire Safety Facilities

The University of Queensland operates a state-of-the-art fire laboratory in the heart of the University’s St Lucia Campus.

The equipment in the laboratory allows testing – from the very small-scale material compositions to full-scale structural fire testing.

Our facilities help our researchers and commercial partners develop a better understand their materials or assemblies. Consequently, although much of the laboratory equipment is capable of performing the standard tests required for regulatory compliance, we do not issue standard testing certificates. We prefer to help develop products that deliver enhanced performance, rather than products that simply pass the test.

If you are interested in identifying the fire performance of a particular material or product, UQ Fire will be able to help you. For further information, contact us at
