BullEx Smart Class A Fire Technology features dual combustion technology to create fire using both gas and wood. Smart Class A technology was developed to allow firefighters to utilize real burning wood in their training scenarios without worrying about the environmental effects.

Our Smart Class A technology is a two part system that allows you to burn class A material and subsequently clean the smoke and hydrocarbon filled air. After an evolution has finished, smoke is captured in a chamber through ventilation and is burned a second time with propane gas, resulting in air that is 99.5% clean at the end. This technology allows organizations to meet clean air requirements while conducting effective and highly repeatable training.

The dual-fuel burner is capable of igniting up to 100 lbs. of class A material using propane or natural gas. This system allows trainees to completely extinguish the fire and reignite it almost immediately for countless evolutions, decreasing downtime and maximizing training.

For firefighters, heat and smoke are the real enemies. To be properly prepared to face these challenges, training with wood-fueled fire is critical.  Burning wood gives off real heat and heavy smoke that most realistically simulates an actual fire incident.  Smart Class A fire technology by BullEx is the perfect solution for instructors looking to provide realistic yet environmentally friendly training evolutions.


The Smart Class A system includes a specially designed Class A chamber with a built-in gas ignition module that an instructor can operate from a distance. The instructor uses the gas module to ignite the wood in the chamber. Once the fire has been extinguished, it can be lit again immediately – without having to load more wood into the burner. Although the wood remains wet after being extinguished, the gas flames and unique chamber design quickly dry and reignite the wood for the next training session.

To address the emission issues of traditional Class A burning (black-smoke), smoke and gas is drawn from the structure and scrubbed by an integrated afterburner. The after-burning process takes away and purifies the smoke before releasing it safely outside the training room as clean-air emissions.

Built-in water suppression systems and smart controls keep firefighters safe, even in the toughest training conditions. When the E-Stop is pressed the Class A fire is extinguished and the smoke is cleared automatically for safer training. The fire prop is equipped with a water-drench system and is supplied with a high-volume water line for rapid fire suppression. The ventilation automatically adjusts to 100% capacity to quickly clear the smoke.

Marine fires are extremely difficult to handle because of the complexity of a ship’s layout, making it difficult to safely access the seat of the fire. BullEx has experience designing and developing diverse marine fire training systems. BullEx can produce simulated marine environments within a training structure, or produce actual marine vessels modified for fire training scenarios.


Firefighters and first responders in the mining industry face unique challenges when preparing to face fire risks. To make training as realistic as possible, BullEx is capable of incorporating our fire training props into modified mining shafts or modify props to fit your mine’s specific objectives.


BullEx is capable of supplying all the necessary training tools and structures for your structural fire departments. BullEx provides the tools necessary to train both new and advanced firefighters on sizing up structures, initial fire attack, fire behavior, ventilation, water supply, hose stream application, search and rescue, firefighter survival and FAST.


Expose your firefighters to the unique challenges of fighting fires in a public transportation setting, or in vehicles themselves. Choose from our portfolio of transportation training tools, or work with BullEx to create a training tool to fit your specific objective.

Our Training Structures and Centers product line includes portable stand-alone fire props and larger mobile trailers, semi-trailers and modified training containers. BullEx also has extensive experience in the development of full-scale fixed training facilities including fire training towers, training ships, aircraft simulators, industrial complexes and multi-structure training sites. BullEx has become the world leader in the design and development of multidisciplinary fire training campuses and can work with clients every step of the way from concept to planning to construction.


BullEx is the world leader in designing, engineering and building large scale multi-disciplinary training complexes.  Our Training Complexes often combine a range of fire technologies that apply to the full range of training disciplines. Complexes can be designed to simulate neighborhoods, communities, cities, airports, industrial complexes or any other multi-building center.


BullEx training facilities include multi-story training towers, fixed petro-chemical structures and a wide range of other buildings that are ideal for interior and exterior fire training.  Train your department in a BullEx Facility under live-fire conditions to better prepare first responders to protect lives and property.


BullEx Training Containers and Roll-offs are a great solution for departments with large-scale training needs and limited space. Containers are portable, but offer all of the training capabilities that a fixed space provides.  Intricate training environments can be configured with multiple containers. Incorporate any combination of fire technology and fire training props into your containers to meet your unique training needs.
