Is fire safety an expensive after-thought?

Methods and technologies for fire safe transportation

There’s a growing desire among consumers to experience cruise ships, trains and planes that are grander than ever before.

Meanwhile, climate change puts pressure on companies to explore sustainable and bio-based building materials. New material innovations emerge constantly across industries, including transportation. This development results in complicated constructions made out of materials yet unknown to traditional fire safety design. There is simply not enough empirical data on the new materials.

The solution is VTT FireProof – a holistic fire safety service that includes the assessment of materials, products and structures in the product development phase, as well as support in the testing and classification phases.
