New, unique experimental module for fire tests

SP Fire Research has invested in a new false ceiling in the experimental hall which can be raised to any desired height. This provides unique opportunities for flexible experimental setups, which amongst other things is particularly useful when testing extinguishing systems, where one can easily adjust the height and room size according to customer requirements. Such extinguishing systems can for instance be used in warehouses, machinery spaces, hangars and atriums.

The ceiling covers an area of ​​476 m2 (17 x 28 m) and can be raised up to 15 m height. This makes it possible to achieve a room size of up to 7 140 m3. The ceiling consists of two modules, which makes it possible to have different heights in different parts of the room.

For example, we could previously offer extinguishing tests according to IMO 1165 (water mist system for use in machinery spaces) in a room of 3 348 m3. With the new module we more than double the room size, which gives room for acceptance tests of systems to be used in even larger machinery spaces. With the current rules for scaling, under certain conditions one can obtain approval for use of extinguishing systems up to 14 280 m3.
