Live Fire Training

Taxpayer Fire Simulator ST/ST-PRO

Symtech’s expanded Strip Mall Taxpayer Container Fire Simulator ST and ST-PRO Training Units deliver unparalleled ruggedness and durability. The Taxpayer version builds on the Strip Mall, adding an apartment/dwelling floor with additional burn room opportunities and additional hidden fire simulations. Our interior layouts provide varied scenarios and attack angles that do not resemble typical container interiors. The training units are expandable over time and they are relocatable. All openings are fully reinforced with our heavy-duty steel framing system. Premium ST-PRO features such as bar grating roof decks, non-skid steel floors, and our 2,300° F thermal lining system ensure your investment stands the test of time.

Live fire and non-burn units are available. Fires can be fueled by Class “A,” Propane, or Natural Gas. Our 70,000 cfm Smoke Generation System ensures maximum obscuration for search and rescue training. All training units are fully compliant with NFPA 1402 and OSHA guidelines. Standard and fully custom designs are available. An extensive options list is available upon request.
