Desktop Flashover

realistic classroom demonstrations

  • Demonstrate Backdrafts & Flashovers

    The Desktop Flashover has been specifically developed to produce realistic classroom demonstrations of the dangers and the energy released by a backdraft or flashover fire.

  • Simulate Explosive Environments

    Using the controllable gas supply and internal ventilation system, it is possible to simulate a variety of air and gas mixtures to create environments that are within, below or above explosive limits.

  • Powerful visual aid

    The fire is ignited electronically. The progress of the seat of the fire can be viewed through the windows. The Desktop Flashover provides a powerful visual aid for teaching trainees.

  • Small scale, large impact

    The Desktop Flashover offers the possibility to demonstrate the different stages of flue gas combustion on a small, simplified scale. Whether you want to demonstrate a fire spill over, a flashover or backdraft, everything is possible with this Desktop Flashover.

More from LION

"Why LION? I have interacted with firefighter survival equipment manufacturers for over four decades, but I haven't met any that come close to LION with their sincere and proven interest in understanding (aka LISTENING) to what we, firefighters, genuinely need. Their endless pursuit to listen to the "voices of firefighters" and then utilizing the latest proven firefighting research results in bunker gear that supports us in best taking care of those who need us, as well as each other. From their demonstrated commitment in providing us with what we genuinely need to do the job, to their full and hands on involvement (in research and fiscal support) with the battle to reduce firefighter cancer, LION isn't just words- they are proven action with impressive results."

Billy Goldfeder | Deputy Fire Chief Loveland-Symmes Fire Department

"Recently, the Baton Rouge Fire Department accepted delivery of the ITS Xtreme fire extinguisher training prop and we have hit the ground running. We have trained over 200 people in the proper use of a fire extinguisher in approximately 6 weeks. This new technology is leaps and bounds better and more efficient than the old training method of the burn pan and carbon dioxide extinguishers. We are able to take full advantage of the ability to recharge the extinguishers onsite, thereby allowing us to reach more people effectively. This unit is exponentially easier to setup, use and maintain than previous methods."

Clint L. Sanchez | Baton Rouge Fire Department

"When you combine ease of use, quick set up and tear down time, actual training time, and SAFETY of this training system, there is nothing out there comparable."

George Ostrom | Safety Asst, AMRI Global

"The customer service has been awesome! I did have a problem with one of the fire extinguishers when it was first delivered. I made one phone call and spoke with a technician who immediately sent out a brand new extinguisher. They have contacted me often to make sure that I was completely satisfied and wasn’t having any further problems. It’s not too often that you can not only get a great product, but also great service. I would highly recommend it to others."

Denita Lynch | High Point Fire Department

"I have trained about 125 employees for one company, with great success. The system is very easy to set up, as well as to operate."

Pat Patterson | President LAAP, Inc.

"Thanks to [LION], we have directly cut over $1,000 annually from our contracted fire training and since we have been able to easily train staff, the system has paid for itself; given the cost of contracting out this training to the number of staff we trained ourselves."

Dylan Hayes | Disaster Response Manager, Seattle Children’s Hospital
