Better fire protection for metros and suburbain rail
Our society is characterized by a transportation system that expands daily, contributing to our modern living. In some of the biggest metro stations in the world, millions of people transit every hour. In such crowded places, ensuring people’s safety can be a challenge. The passengers only transit the area, most of them without knowledge on what are the fire escape procedures. Metros are also poorly ventilated, which can easily lead to radiant heat and smoke being amplified. It is a prerequisite for metros to be equipped with a reliable fire protection system that will make evacuation of people possible and facilitate the access for the fire fighting crew. Rigorous tests have proven that SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system is the optimum fire fighting system for protecting these critical transit areas. Marton Horvath,
Country Manager at Danfoss Fire Fighting, presented the test results and benefits of SEM-SAFE®
for metro stations and suburban rail at the RIFA Annual General Meeting.
Danfoss Fire Fighting attends RIFA Annual General Meeting
RIFA (Rail Industry Fire Association) Annual General Meeting was held on the 14th
of July 2017 in London. The main objective of RIFA is that of knowledge and best practice sharing in the field of fire safety for the railway industry. As a voice for norms concerning fire safety, the association's annual meeting serves as a platform for experts to meet and discuss fire safety. The event was very well attended and included a number of presentations and a fire test in the Burn Hall. Marton Horvath has chosen as a case study the famous Budapest Metro system, which is protected by a SEM-SAFE®
high-pressure water mist system. Fire test for cable tunnels and under carriage space protection demonstrated the excellent properties and benefits of SEM-SAFE®
