An Austrian company is revolutionising fire safety with an innovative new way of testing buildings and tunnels. Their smoke machines turn a non-toxic biodegradable liquid into smoke that can be used to practice fire drills and evacuations in a variety of settings. They also enable testing and evaluation of the existing evacuation plans and exit routes. This is particularly important due to the fact that 80 % of fire victims do not die from the flames but from the toxic smoke they inhaled. Tunnel fires in particular pose a huge risk as they can release up to a million cubic metres of flue gas in a short period of time. Fires can quickly spread to other vehicles as is testified by these numbers.
