The hall is suitable for a wide variety of different types of large-scale fire tests to study ignitability, fire development, effect of fire extinguishing systems or to make reconstructions of certain fire events.

Advanced technical equipment is measuring heat release rate up to 15 MW, fire development effects and production of smoke and toxic gases. High environmental requirements require advanced smoke and water cleaning systems.
