Metro and train tunnels

The risk of tunnel fires in metro and rail tunnels are significantly lower than in road tunnels due to low fire loads and effective monitoring. However, the consequences of such fires can be very devastating, and evacuation of passengers can be challenging since large groups of people have to be moved along narrow pathways to the nearest exit or station. Fire incidents in longer tunnels are especially catastrophic since fires produce high temperatures and toxic smokes, and escape routes are often limited.

A Fixed Fire Fighting System will control the fire by applying water at the fire’s early stage which helps avoid fire spread, reduce smoke hazards and allow for safe evacuation of passengers.
