Warringtonfire’s global fire engineering team are able to offer a number of different options when it comes to assessing the evacuation strategy for a building. There are guidance documents that can specify certain features of design such as exit route width and occupant characteristics, but fire evacuation modelling offers a more economical and often more robust solution to the problem.

Fire evacuation modelling is particularly useful where it is necessary to predict the amount of time needed to evacuate a building (often referred to as the Required Safe Egress Time or RSET).

This is sometimes used in combination with smoke modelling, which can predict the time it will take for a situation to become untenable (at times known as the Available Safe Egress Time or ASET).

In its fire evacuation modelling Warringtonfire use the latest technology to create simulations that forecasts the flow of people and shows the best design for fire safety, whilst maximizing your buildings other features.

This technology allows us to assess a multitude of scenarios accurately that ensure the building is safe for use.
