Gaseous extinguishing agents

RISE can offer fire large scale fire testing of clean agents.

Sweden and several other countries have already banned the use of halon for fire extinguishing purposes. The work is in progress regarding standardised installation regulations and test procedures at both ISO and CEA. CEN will follow the work made by ISO. SP follows the work in the different organisations closely and can offer guidance for both manufacturers and end-users. Our facilities are well suited for performing large-scale tests according to the test protocol developed by IMO and from ISO and CEA.

The more demanding end-user can also have specific test scenarios developed for more unique applications that need special attention.
