Road and train tunnels
The impact of tunnel fires can be devastating
Tunnels are long confined spaces with limited escape routes, and a fire inside these structures can have catastrophic consequences for the people involved. The evacuation of passengers in underground tunnels can be challenging since large groups of people have to be moved along narrow pathways to the nearest exit or station. Tunnel fires can cause severe structural damage and prolonged closure of important infrastructure networks. To protect people, and avoid structural damage and interruption of operations, an effective and fast-acting fire suppression system is required.
VID FIREKILL's TUNPROTEC® low pressure watermist Fixed Fire Fighting system is specially developed for fire protection of road and train tunnels. The system facilitates control of fire at its early stage preventing heat build-up, fire growth, and fire spread between vehicles as well as reducing smoke hazards. The system fights fires in tunnels fast and effectively and enables safe evacuation and easy access for rescue workers.
