Webinar: Fiber in Focus

Fiber in focus: Protecting multi-storey car parks with fiber optic sensing technology

Tuesday 7th May 2024

Join a panel of industry experts as we explore the challenges of managing fire safety risks in multi-storey parking garages.

These environments pose unique fire risks due to their design, infrastructure, and the presence of numerous vehicles. Whether it’s new fire risks associated with EV battery systems and charging equipment to the ever-present threats of arson and vandalism, this webinar will highlight how Bandweaver’s solutions can rise to the challenge.

Implementing robust fire detection systems are not just an exercise in compliance. Last year, a huge blaze tore through London Luton Airport’s £20 multi-storey car park with costly consequences. With “significant structural collapse” and an estimated 1,500 vehicles in the car park at the time, the total cost of the damage is still unknown 5 months later.

Fiber optic linear heat detection technology can trigger fire suppression systems faster than conventional solutions, minimising damage and reducing the pressure on emergency services.

From solution specification and system design to installation, configuration and testing, we’ll take you through everything you need to know, including live examples from a working site. Utilising features such as smart alarms to monitor rate of rise and deviation, we’ll demonstrate how these innovative solutions can raise the alarm and enable a swift response.
