Documented fire safety

DBI will develop and strengthen the technological infrastructure and the technological services for the documentation of the fire safety and fireproof design of components and systems for use in buildings or ships. The aim is to give Danish companies easy access to the latest knowledge concerning fireproof design, as well as fire testing, to document compliance with the statutory requirements.

Decision-making support for easy digital project design of fire safety

The aim is to contribute to increasing the construction sector's productivity by digitising the processes for the project design of fireproofing. This is a focus area for companies, as well as organisations and authorities. Today, project design companies often have to involve expensive and time-consuming external expertise.

Technical fire prototype laboratory for new construction products

DBI wishes to develop a new technological service which will increase accuracy, minimise costs and shorten the time-to-market when new construction products need to undergo fire testing. The aim is to enhance producers' competitiveness and exports, and to support the creation of new workplaces.

Fire Forecaster

The aim of this project is to use the concept of artificial neural networks and historical fire testing data sets as input parameters to build up a forecasting model to define the fire resistance of a maritime bulkhead exposed to a standard fire from one side.

FFAT

The aim of the FFAT (Façade Fire Assessment Tool) project is to help producers to overcome the existing legislative barriers to fire safety by launching the first commercial tool to assess façade elements' potential to achieve European and Asian test certification.

Giorgio Marinelli
Research and Innovation Consultant

The project runs from: 1 December 2016 to 30 November 2017 Read more

Facade testing

The project covers the development of a new testing method for the phases of a fire, with focus on the need to reduce the testing scale and to use performance-based assessments.

Project Fire Causes

The purpose of the Project Fire Causes was to achieve improved fire safety in private homes. The project mapped out the data that was registered in relation to building fire by a number of key players and gathered knowledge that was outside the scope of the registration systems for the causes of fires and the risk behaviour of damaged building elements etc.

Carsten Møller
Research and Innovation Consultant

The project ran from: 01 October 2015 to 31 December 2016. Read more

Fire Tools

The aim of the project is to create computer simulation tools, methods and models to make optimum use of the traditional expensive and time-consuming fire testing.
Project lead
Dan H. Lauridsen
Lead Technical Consultant

The project ran from: 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2016 Read more

The InnoBYG Spire Project: The fire effect of bio-based facade systems

The purpose of the project was to illustrate and document the contextual fire safety of selected facade systems constructed with bio-based materials with a view to achieving a greater area of application.

BIS - Fire technology innovation support

The purpose of the project was to make leading fire technology knowledge and laboratory facilities available to Danish companies.
Project lead
Carsten Damgaard
Head of Research and Development

The project ran from: 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2015 Read more

The InnoBYG project "Fire and construction materials"

The purpose of the project was to build up and disseminate knowledge on how construction materials with weak fire technical properties, for example, plastic and foam materials, can be used while taking account of fire safety in the building.
