Advanced smoke detection protects Performance Wall at The O2 arena
Very early detection of fire to protect the Performance Wall at The O2 arena is provides by a Wagner Titanus system.
Air-sampling smoke detection systems that can detect fires at a very early stage are helping to protect the Performance Wall, a giant video screen that delivers information about events at The O2 arena in Greenwich. Wagner’s Titanus ASD systems can often detect fires before visible smouldering, or an open fire occurs and before intense smoke develops. Highly sensitive Top·Sens ASD units protect the high-performance video display and electronics systems behind the wall, and Pro·Sens units protect the electrical switchgear, which serves the Performance Wall and other electrical systems in the complex. All the ASD systems are interfaced to The O2’s main fire-detection systems. ASD systems draw air continuously from the monitored area through a pipe system with sampling holes at regular intervals. The airflow is analysed for smoke particles. The system can detect if a hole is blocked, a pipe is ruptured or if the air-sampling unit has failed.
