WHY IS IFAB DIFFERENT?
IFAB specialises in fire protection research, testing and consulting. IFAB knows fire in practice and is therefore different from other organizations that only design on a theoretical basis. IFAB’s approach is to utilise the information it has collected from numerous fire tests to ensure the most effective fire safety solutions technically. The Company Mission is to provide innovative and effective fire protection services to clients at reasonable cost. IFAB is eager for challenges; the tougher the request from a client, the more determined IFAB is to solve it:
- We are ASKING
- We are ANALYSING
- We are ANSWERING
