Sanna Sävmark, Brandskyddslaget AB

My responsibilities at Brandskyddslaget vary somewhat, but approximately 50% of my work involves fire protection for ventilation. FEDS is an intuitive and effective program for assessing insulation requirements and clearance distances, among other factors. The programme has proven invaluable in several of my projects, enabling me to analyse the insulation needs of grease ducts, determine clearance distances to combustibles, and establish insulation requirements for the installation of fire gas dampers (E 60-S).

Hans Nyman, Brandskyddslaget AB

As a fire consultant primarily specialising in ventilation fire protection, I utilise FEDS on a daily basis. The program’s wide range of predefined fire scenarios and clear outputs allows me to refine the design of duct insulation in cooperation with ventilation consultants, irrespective of the chosen protection method. FEDS has deepened my comprehension of the factors influencing the insulation needs of ducts. Furthermore, FEDS provides various handbooks and background materials for installation fire protection.

Johan Rönnbäck, Briab

As a business manager and fire consultant specialising in ventilation fire protection, I utilise the programme to assist HVAC consultants with advice on designing insulation in specific cases, especially when faced with particularly challenging or ambiguous scenarios. The programme proves especially invaluable during the renovation of existing buildings, where innovative solutions are often required. With the programme, users have the opportunity to test and calculate various solutions. I find the programme highly intuitive and user-friendly.

Thomas Järphag, Senior Consultant Brandexpert, NCC Building SE

I primarily utilise the software for building technology assessments and verifications. For example, I calculate the required clearance distance for uninsulated ventilation ducts to combustible materials, such as those found in suspended ceiling spaces. FEDS calculates the duct’s surface temperature, radiation intensity, and necessary clearance distance after a duct penetration at a fire compartment boundary. Since the software is user-friendly, multiple calculations can be performed quickly to identify optimal and cost-effective fire protection solutions. My colleagues also rely on FEDS for traditional fire engineering calculations related to ventilation fire protection, as it delivers rapid results and associated reports. A significant advantage is the collection of examples with pre-made templates and comprehensive documentation. I highly recommend this software.

Lars Mattsson, Stål & Brandteknik AB

Stål & Brandteknik AB always endeavours to lead in the field of building technical fire protection and passive fire protection in Sweden. As both contractors and material suppliers, we offer the market innovative solutions and new materials. We utilise FEDS to calculate complementary insulation for our seals on non-combustible pipes within fire compartment boundaries. This is particularly crucial for installations involving larger copper pipes, sprinklers, and cast iron, where our technical expertise and meticulous calculations ensure the performance and functionality of our products.
