Multi-Storey Car Parks

Car parks have their own specific kind of risks such as:

  • Open to high airflows
  • Pollution from vehicle exhaust fumes
  • High ceilings which put the source of the fire some distance from the detector
  • Vandalism

Car park ceiling/roofs are not flat in their construction so are not conducive with correct operation of line of sight detection concepts - such as beam detectors. The  ceiling /roofs employ large support beams which will reduce the effectiveness of beam detectors.

Car parks are close to heavily populated shopping malls, airports, hospitals and hotels with environmental conditions being polluted by vehicle exhaust fumes.

The specified detector type for car park applications must be able to operate rapidly within areas of high air flows.  It must operate with minimum annual maintenance requirements within potentially corrosive environments where rodents may also be regularly seen, without generation of unwanted alarms.  It must also be mechanically flexible to allow its installation close to the potential origin of a fire without generating unwanted interest from vandals.

PROLINE LINEAR HEAT DETECTION meets all the above design, installation and operating criteria required for MULTI-STOREY CAR PARKS.

As a multi -kms continuous detector PROLINE LINEAR DETECTION provide TOTAL area coverage.   The installation is rapid and cost effective. With spacing at regular intervals along the underside of the ceiling to UL Listing recommendations.  To increase protection the sensor cable installation can integrate vertical runs from roof/ceiling height to floor level bringing the detection down to the level of the local heat source.

Digital (LHS) & Analogue Linear Sensing

The means to locally monitor for temperature changes (rise or fall) at "point of risk" and at ANY /ALL locations along an installed length of temperature sensitive cable - regardless of environmental conditions.

Fibre Optic Linear Temperature Sensing

Line detection of temperature change and rate of rise along multi -kms lengths of small diameter fibre optic cable. It provides high performance near real time temperature Sensing and Alarm functionality with standard communication interfaces.

Proline 'Nero' Water & Moisture Detection

Rapid detection of the smallest of leaks within Industrial, Commercial Environments by a recoverable cable. Designed to provide 24 hours/day x 7 days/week continuous monitoring of areas where even the smallest of leaks can prove disastrous. Essential where undetected leakages can cause serious damage to today’s complex electrical, communications and computer networks.
