Building a functional Fire House is not as easy as it may first appear. One of the most underrated problems is the effect of the thermal shock caused by repeated and frequent high heat cycles. This can lead to very early degradation of the structure of the Fire House. We, Phoenix, use only tried and tested specialist materials and designs to ensure that our Hot Fire Training Systems continue to function for an extended period.


We are on the safety side, in Europe at least, a specific standard refers to “Interior Fire Places” - DIN 14097 Part 2. We believe that this standard should be regarded as a minimum requirement and design the performance of our internal Fire Training System to exceed this specification.


A wide variety of fire training props can be installed in the structure such as stairwell fire, kitchen fire, sofa fire, curtain fire, bed fire and wardrobe fire. For example a gas meter prop is designed with a ball valve. Isn’t that closed the fire cannot be extinguished.


Computer controlled selection of the Fire Scenario can enable the fire to grow and spread, perhaps even to an upper floor or even enable a Flashover should incorrect technique be applied. We differentiate between a Rollover and a Flashover, the general public intermixes these terms.

Clear monitoring of the trainees in terms of location, performance and vital signs should all be included.


We have developed an trainee surveillance software with chip reading systems transferring all personal data of an trainee to the control screen, including telemetric systems for pulse frequency and physical constitution. Full visual surveillance via Thermovision cameras displayed on screens in the control room comply the full information about any training session.


The Fire House itself may take the form of a fixed structure or be a modular design, a build up of especially designed containers which fit together.
