As sponsors and presenters, PEFIPRESA participated in the event organized by CEPREVEN and TECNIFUEGO at the Official College of Experts and Industrial Engineers of Seville, on Fire Safety in hangars and airport terminals.
On June 27, the objective of the day was to present the problem of fires occurring in specific risk areas in Hangars and Airport Terminals along with the technical criteria for the design and installation of fire protection systems and the integration of safety requirements in a construction project.
Experts attending represented various protection technologies to explain their applications in airport and hangar risk areas. They reviewed usable detection systems, automatic extinguishing methods (depending on the type of hangar), smoke control and compartmentalization solutions, and applications of gas and water mist extinguishing systems.
They also showed how the concept of fire safety is developed in airport terminals, from the perspective of provisioning engineering, and the vision by third party controllers to provide protection for these types of risks.
PEFIPRESA, led by its Technical Director, presented a paper on the specific protection solution through the combination of Automatic Water Sprinkler Systems and High Expansion Foam Generators. This paper focused on the analysis of the design criteria based on NFPA 409, FM Global DS 7-93, EN 13565-2 and UFC 4-211-01, ranging from the classification of the hangar to specific design criteria with a comparison between them to conclude.
PEFIPRESA actively contributes and participates in events in its effort to disseminate knowledge through the exchange of information and achieve greater progress in fire safety for the benefit of all.
