Fire toxicity assessment

Testing, measurement  and impact of fire products

Toxic fire products are major causes of:

  • injury and death in fires
  • environmental contamination and health hazards
  • damage to buildings through corrosion and contamination.

Assessment of fire effluent chemistry and toxicity may be required for:

  • product specification
  • product life cycle evaluation
  • hazard and risk assessment including performance-based design
  • evaluation of post-fire contamination including decisions for replacement/refurbishment of smoke damaged items.

Our world-leading experts in fire chemistry, toxicity, and human behaviour are at the forefront of the development of National and International standards in the field.

We offer the following services:

  • comprehensive testing for combustion toxicity, toxic hazard and risk assessment
  • standard and ad-hoc tests, both small and full-scale
  • comprehensive chemical and physical measurements
  • measurement of chemical contamination from fire and evaluation of the associated problems of plume dispersal and environmental impact of fire products
  • modelling of toxic hazard and risk.
