What you can expect from Firensics

Behind the Brand

Firensics, as the name suggests, combines Fire and Forensics.

The triangular Firensics logo is based on three important triangles used in fire and explosion investigation: The Fire or Combustion Triangle (also known as the Fire Tetrahedron), the Quality Triangle in Forensics, and the Arson Triangle.

The “I” with the orange dot represents a candle, moreover the “Candle Experiments”, which provides a fundamental understanding of fire.

Firensics puts the science into modern fire and explosion investigation. We are your qualified forensic fire investigation scientists, with a thorough understanding of fire science, fire investigation, fire behaviour, building and construction, mechanical and automotive, and insurance (nondisclosure, recovery and liability).

Scientific knowledge and principles that underpin fire science form the bases of any fire investigation. We only offer objective, scientific forensic investigations and outcomes.
