Protection concepts for fire and explosion protection

Fire and explosion protection play an important role in terms of personal safety as well as the prevention of operational interruptions and loss of material value. For this reason, architects, builders, contractors and plant operators often face an unmanageable number of regulations and associated legal requirements for fire and explosion protection. In addition, the industry-specific and plant-specific requirements of accident insurance carriers and property insurers must be taken into account.

We carry out fire tests in the following fields:

  • Mining
  • Building materials and component
  • Ship building
  • Rolling stock
  • Personal protective equipment
  • Textiles, Furniture & Fittings

The DMT Testing Laboratory for Fire Protection, based in Dortmund and Lathen, Germany, is a DIN EN ISO 9001 certified and DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025:2005 accredited testing laboratory for fire tests. There we can carry out a whole range of fire tests to determine the necessary values for you:

  • Flammability tests
  • Determination of burning speed
  • Fire resistance tests
  • Determination of burning behaviour
  • Fire and explosion concepts

Our highly qualified experts in the fields of process, construction, mechanical, chemical and safety engineering work together with you to develop tailor-made, holistic solutions and protection concepts based on the latest systematics. In this way, we make use of our experience in meeting the technical fire safety requirements of special constructions, in providing support in the context of special firefighting in silos, landfills and waste dumps or in determining the causes of fires and explosions.

In addition, DMT is also active as a service provider in almost all areas of tunnel safety: road, railway, public transport, tunnel construction, as well as in other underground facilities. In close cooperation with operators, planners and fire brigade and police forces, we are able to find the optimum fire protection solution for every task.
