Safety and security are key requirements that need to be considered in tunnel design. The scale of damage to infrastructure and consequences in terms of human impact, loss of business and reputation can be considerable. To minimise this impact, early detection of a fire event is of paramount importance.
Our DTS can provide early warning of a smouldering fire, asses the movement and position of a fire even as the event unfolds. In the control room, an operator always has the current overview of the temperature status in the tunnel. The DTS is capable of withstanding temperatures up to 1000 deg C, giving crucial information about a fire’s size, direction and intensity, helping guide the firefighting effort.
