For clients who wish to simulate the conditions of an event, SEL has a test room at our Yale, Michigan facility featuring a controlled environment test bay capable of accommodating complete test items. Gas collectors, dryers and analyzers provide quantitative and qualitative analysis of products of combustion and measure rate of heat release.

Additionally, exemplar structures can be constructed to conduct demonstrations. State-of-the-art video and digital photography systems are available to provide a permanent record. SEL also has a portable X-ray system capable of producing digital radiographs of fire scene artifacts and non-fire related items.
