Escalators and Travelators

FIRESENSE Linear Heat Detection Cable (LHDC) is recognised as the fire detector of choice for escalators and travelators.


Fire Detection Solutions for Escalators

Its unique factors mean it is ideally suited for the harsh environmental conditions that are present.

Escalator fire protection systems need to be able to detect quickly and reliably, with minimum long term maintenance and crucially without causing unwanted alarms. Fire detection systems not only have to protect life, but also the building and infrastructure.

Fast, reliable heat detectors can reduce damage and the high cost of repair or replacement, minimise downtime and consequential loss and lessen the impact for potential pollution and the possible inhalation of toxic fumes.

Our Complete Fire Detection Solution

Escalators are often prone to high levels of grease, this coupled with dust can cause potential fire risks. Linear Heat Detection Cable (LHDC) is not affected by these conditions. Similarly, it is also unaffected by environments that are prone to damp and high humidity.

The suitability of LHDC to work effectively in this environment means that it is not prone to generating false alarms, which is an issue caused by traditional smoke detectors.

Fires on escalators and travelators can develop rapidly and can spread because of the continuous movement.

LHDC can be installed close to the points of risk, such as:

  • Debris Collector Trays
  • Rollers
  • Bearings
  • Drive Motors
