The Fire Triangle

The Fire Triangle

The Fire triangle. A triangle is often used to depict the 3 elements necessary for fire to occur: fuel, heat and oxygen.

Interruption of the connection between these elements can be used to explain the various ways of dealing with fire.

This also describes the various mechanisms that are used to influence Rate of spread of flame and Ease of Ignition by the application of flame retardants.

It is important to recognise that this symbolic representation of fire is limited to describing the mechanisms of a fire burning.
