Hot smoke tests with Izar

Juan Blond

Juan Blond has a master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Madrid, as well as an International Master of Fire Safety Engineering from Ghent University, Lund University and the University of Edinburgh. Developing the innovative Izar hot smoke test system at Basler & Hofmann was the perfect opportunity to combine these two specialisations. In the fire engineering team, Juan Blond is the expert for smoke-extraction and evacuation simulations, and acts as a project manager in fire safety consulting. He also manages hot smoke tests with Izar in demanding sites, such as the Coop production and distribution centre in Schafisheim, and in event locations or auditoriums with high occupancy levels.

What fascinates you about your work?

I am fascinated by how much support you get for innovative ideas at Basler & Hofmann. This open-minded attitude enabled us to develop the Izar hot smoke test system, which I believe has really raised the bar.

What is different about working at Basler & Hofmann?

I especially like the team spirit. When I’m faced with a demanding task, my team always offer support and someone I can discuss solutions with.
