Bandweaver to host a webinar on the benefits of fiber optic linear heat detection (LHD) for long-range assets such as tunnels and conveyors
Bandweaver, innovators of fiber optic sensing technologies, are showcasing the advantages of their Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) solutions when used in long-range assets. ‘Going the Distance: Fire Safety Solutions for Long-Range Assets’ will take place on Tuesday 15 November at 10:00 AM UTC, hosted virtually by Richard Kluth, Bandweaver’s Managing Director.
In this webinar, Richard will cover:
- Introduction to the principles of fiber optic linear heat detection technology
- Demonstrations of the benefits of fiber optic sensors
- The enhanced performance of these systems, including rapid detection and minimal nuisance alarms
- FireLaser: the highest performance system available
- Bandweaver’s experience in fiber optic LHD applications

Having undertaken numerous projects within this sector, Bandweaver are looking to share their expertise and learnings, allowing others to experience the benefits that their clients are already seeing.
With more cars on the road than ever before, creating a higher demand for road space and congesting tunnels worldwide, fire safety in long-range assets has never been so important. Tunnel fires in particular can be life threatening and cause severe damage to tunnel or asset structure, creating further risk or requiring extensive repairs. Not only does a fire like this cause immediate destruction, but the knock-on effect can also be catastrophic, from traffic disruption to local economy loss. With limited entrance and exit points, as well as dangerous air flow and potential risk of vehicle gasses, long-range assets need fire solutions that detect the fire early and with location precision. Meaning that the fire can be managed, minimising disruption and damage, and helping to protect the safety of those inside.
Bandweaver’s Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) solutions utilise fiber optic linear heat detection to monitor asset temperatures where reliability, safety and seamless system integration are essential. The FireLaser and the T-Laser are designed with safety in mind and have been rigorously tested to the industry’s highest standards.
Richard Kluth, Managing Director, says: “We’re keen to educate potential users of the extensive benefits of fiber optic linear heat detection, and to speak on our own experiences based on projects we’ve worked on. We know these solutions are proven to offer significant benefits over alternative technologies and we’re looking forward to sharing this knowledge with attendees.”
Join this free webinar – ‘Going the Distance: Fire Safety Solutions for Long-Range Assets’ on Tuesday 15 November, to discover more about this innovative, market-leading technology. Hosted in a virtual space, you can join Bandweaver from anywhere in the world as they take you through the benefits, demonstrations, and their first-hand experiences.

Bandweaver’s superior fiber optic linear heat detection solution outperforms competition for the protection of industrial plants and buildings
Despite the obvious challenges of 2020, large-scale, industrial and manufacturing sites will always carry a significant fire risk. It’s as important as ever to manage and reduce that risk. Now is the time to make the safety and protection of people, assets and property a priority. Whether a fire begins intentionally, due to human error or because of dangerous environmental conditions, the costs can be substantial. According to a recent report by the Fire Protection Association, the estimated loss caused by fire damage in UK industrial processing and manufacturing plants between 2010 and 2019 was £808 million*. Evidently, traditional fire detection and suppression solutions are not up to scratch. Read more
