Structural Fire Protection in Tunnelling

Separation of fire sections

Rescue routes must be kept smoke-free. This can be achieved with locks or positive pressure ventilation. Escape and rescue routes must be separated in terms of fire protection so that each tube, each rescue tunnel and every rescue shaft can be classified as an individual fire zone.
