The Requirements for installing a suitable fire detection and alarm system within a Transport Interchange would include both manual call-points and detectors with the design customised to suit the building layout and as part of an overall fire engineering solution. Problems associated with a large numbers of visitors may arise from their unfamiliarity with the geography of the building and its safer escape routes together with the means of providing alert and evacuation messages.
Automatic detection of fire may be confined to plant areas, escalators and links to other adjoining buildings such as shopping centres or between bus and rail terminals.
Facilities ensuring the safety of disabled persons in an emergency should also be provided.
The MZX technology fire detection and alarm system offers a solution to meet these challenges, for both detection and fire warning.
