German term or phrase: see below
I have a few queries in this sentence: In all laboratorien, in allen Technik-Räumen, Zwischendecken und im Energie-kanal sowie in allen Räumen, in denen sich explosive, hoch- und leichtentzündliche, brennbare oder brandfördernde Stoffe befinden sich oder sich Gasgemische mit diesen Eigenschaften bilden können.

Firstly: Zwishendecken and Energie-Kanal?
2) What is the difference between hoch- und leichtentzundlich - In English, do we not just say highly flammable?
3) brandfordernd - I haven't been able to find anything for this.

English translation:Zwischendecken = false ceilings?
Explanation:
Zwischendecken could be false ceilings, and Energie-Kanal could be ducts or conduits carrying energy (electricity) cables etc. (or maybe even gas pipes?).

"brandfordernd" sounds like the opposite of "flame-retardant", i.e. flame-conducive, but I cannot really think of an example of such a substance.

HDH just a little.

Explanation:
I agree with all the above, but might not "brandfordernd" refer to oxidizers of some sort? Steve / Pelle
