Fire Detection Solutions for Road Tunnels
The use of Linear Heat Detection Cable for tunnel fire protection can assist in reducing the risk to human life and severe damage to the tunnel structure caused by fires.
Fires in a tunnel cause potential risk to human life and severe damage to the tunnel structure, requiring extensive repairs or causing collapse of the tunnel. The resulting disruption of transport links can cause serious economic or social problems, such as increased traffic congestion, reduction in tourism or damage to the local economy.
Due to limited access / egress points, tunnel fire protection systems need to detect at the earliest opportunity to enable evacuation to safety muster points and extinguishing of the fire.
Our Complete Fire Detection Solution
Linear Heat Detection Cable (LHDC) is particularly suited to applications such as road and rail tunnels where harsh environmental conditions preclude the use of other forms of detection.
Due to the increased air flow in tunnels, traditional smoke detectors can be prone to generating false alarms, as well as inaccuracy in fire location. The combination of Patol’s LHDC and LDM-519-DDL interface works effectively in this environment and provides accurate distance location within 1 metre.
The Patol LHDC is designed to provide early detection of fire conditions and overheating in circumstances where other forms of detection would not be viable, due to the inability to sustain the environment requirements.
