Introduction

Developing itself to become the world’s best fire safety comprehensive research instituteFire Investigation, Research, testing and Education

Fire Investigation, Research, testing and Education (FIRE) develops design technologies to improve building fire safety performance, new space fire safety technologies and facilities with proper social infrastructure. It performs fire resistance tests, thermal reaction tests, and real-scale fire tests in addition to research on fireproof structures and fire-retardant material technologies designed for fire prevention and containment. FIRE is equipped with various test facilities such as 10 MW burn halls and test equipment for a Room Corner Test and Single Burning Items (SBI) as well as long-span horizontal furnaces (10 m), 1,000-ton column furnaces, vertical furnaces, and medium-scale multipurpose furnaces. FIRE is now developing a high-tech disaster safety system based on ICT to diversify its business scope as an international authorized fire test institute with enhanced reliability.
