Tunnel Fire Protection

Underground transport facilities are sensitive links in the economic chain that carry thousands of people and tons of goods every day and they are increasingly more important to society

A breakdown in operations can have catastrophic consequences, hence the need for comprehensive safety precautions and ensuring that the design, installation and maintenance of these systems is of the highest standard.

By far the greatest risk is an uncontrolled fire as fires represent great danger to life due to toxic combustion gases, high temperatures and loss of visibility. In addition, the limited means of escape available together with panic reactions spell disaster for any tunnel operator and the future viability of the transport facility.
