What is the MATRIXTM

The MATRIXTM Fire Risk Evaluation tool is a simple to use software application that provides a clear indication of an existing building’s level of fire risk, applicable regardless of the specific codes adopted by a jurisdiction. The National Association of State Fire Marshal’s developed it for use by fire officials, building officials and designers in evaluating the fire risk of a given building using the criteria from the International Existing Building Code, Chapter 14, Performance Compliance Method. It’s important to note that the use of this tool is not a substitute for periodic code compliance life safety inspections.
