Flame - Flash Fire Cylinder/Hand (FFC/FFH)

Bridging specimen and full garment flame testing

A bench-top textile fire retardant testing cylinder

The Flash Fire Cylinder, developed and available exclusively from Thermetrics, provides a bridge between flat-specimen testing and the full garment tests performed on a Flame manikin. Operators can use the device to quickly screen a wide range of samples and identify the most promising materials suitable for more comprehensive testing as complete garments. Flash Fire Cylinder tests also give operators the means to observe and measure the heat-transfer impacts of material shrinkage and compression.


  • Repeatable instrument for evaluating the properties of FR fabric when subjected to convective heat exposure, and the resultant risk of skin burns.
  • Small and portable, the flash fire cylinder test device fits in most standard fume hood
  • Contains 15 evenly spaced copper calorimeter sensors embedded in a flame resistant ceramic cylinder shell.
