Certified extinguishing gas installations for the new metro line in Amsterdam

Certified extinguishing gas installations for the new metro line in Amsterdam

In cooperation with ThyssenKrupp we have designed and installed 76 detection and extinguishing gas installations in technical areas of the escalators of the new metro line in Amsterdam. In the technical areas of each escalator is the engine and control unit that regulates the escalator. The escalators are part of the escape route, even if the escalators are stationary.

Where fire safety is complex, Saval is at its best.

Approach: Flexible installation

The fire protection systems are specially designed for this specific application because of the lack of space. For these systems we used flexible connections for smoke detectors, alarm transmission and extinguishing hoses. The alarm signalling and technical reports are connected to the main safety system of the North/South line. Because it is built so flexibly, the systems can be completely removed during service and maintenance.

We did an live test in one of the escalators before the systems were installed. This in the presence of the City of Amsterdam, the client VIA and an inspection institution. After approval, we installed this unique solution in 76 technical areas at 8 stations of the North/South line.
