SP Fire TechnologyWe offer a wide range of services for evaluation of the performance of materials and products when exposed to fire, or in respect of their fire risk. We also carry out very extensive research and development work for industry and for other research organisations, both in Sweden and in other countries, often in conjunction with universities and institutes of technology.
We investigate and test the behaviour of materials and products in fires. The results can be used for type approval and certification in Sweden and in other countries. We test extinguishants and fire-fighting equipment.
We also perform theoretical analyses of the growth of fires and the spread of smoke, with calculations of temperatures in structures exposed to fire.
We have an extensive network of contacts through such ways as active participation in international standardisation by CEN and ISO, as well as through the joint European fire testing laboratories organisation, EGOLF.
