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. IFAB is an accredited institute for DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 (water based fixed fire-fighting systems in e.g. rolling stock, storage areas, engine rooms and in tunnels/underground infrastructure), http://www.dakks.de/as/ast/d/D-PL-19994-01-00e.pdf.
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

Extensive smoke and fire tests for a large German Railway Provider
IFAB carried out extensive smoke and fire tests for a large German Railway Provider to assess the efficiency of a fire and smoke detection system to be used in underground railway stations. For those tests IFAB prepared a mock-up scenario which resembled a large underground train station as well as 2 trains.
