The fire lab is equipped with a large-scale extractor hood.

This device uses oxygen consumption calorimetry to calculate the heat release rate of larger scale products or assemblies. The hood is ideal for characterising the fire behaviour of large objects that are composed of many different materials. For example – future, wall materials, small room configurations or even a Christmas tree!

The analyser samples the gases extracted by a large exhaust system capable of accommodating a 2MW fire.
