Flash-over training systems, wood fired
The development of fire from the initial source of ignition to the break-out of smoke can be observed and the necessary behaviors and extinguishing types can be taught.
The exercise follows a proven design: Before the exercise the fire room is lined with chip board. An initial fire is then ignited with fire wood. The intensity of the developing fire in the training system is controlled via the induction air flow by opening the access doors or operating the air valve.
A flash-over is very rare. However, when a flash-over happens, the correct behavior is life-saving. The trainees learn how to detect the signs of a flash-over here.
An external optical alarm system, a pull cord for triggering an emergency alarm and a door between the fire and observation areas provides a maximum of safety. The system is built in accordance with DIN 14097 part 3 for wood fired systems.
Within the flash-over container temperatures of up to 650 °C develop near the top. Here the fire fighters can experience the heat of a real fire in safe conditions.
