What Are the Most Common Fire Hazards in Airports and How Can Fire Sprinklers Mitigate Them?

Airports are bustling hubs of activity, and unfortunately, they are also susceptible to fire hazards due to the high number of people, machines, and combustible materials. Airports must take the necessary precautions to lessen the risk of a potentially disastrous fire by limiting the hazard. The most frequent fire risks in airports are listed below, along with how fire sprinklers can reduce them.


Fire Hazards In Airports

Combustible materials, electrical equipment, dangerous chemicals, and flammable liquids are airports’ most frequent fire hazards.

Combustible materials, such as cardboard boxes, paper, and plastic, can easily ignite in the presence of heat or flame.

Electrical equipment and electronics, such as computers and air conditioning units. These can be overloaded and ignited due to electrical or thermal overloads.

Hazardous chemicals, such as solvents and cleaning agents, can be ignited by a spark or heat source and flammable liquids, such as fuels and lubricants, can be easily ignited.


Reducing Fire Hazards With Fire Sprinklers

Since they are made to effectively control and suppress fires, fire sprinklers are a crucial part of any fire safety system. Typically, fire sprinklers are activated when the temperature reaches about 135°F. At this temperature, the sprinkler head will open and extinguish the fire by releasing a large volume of water onto the source. This prevents the fire from spreading and causing further damage.


Additionally, fire sprinklers can be connected to existing airports’ fire detection systems. This means in the event of a fire, fire sprinklers will be automatically activated when the fire is detected. This lowers the likelihood of a significant fire and further improves the fire safety system’s effectiveness.


Keeping People Safe

Fire safety protocol in an airport should be a top priority, with evacuation plans in place to ensure all passengers and staff can exit the premises safely. Fire extinguishers and smoke detectors should be tested regularly and staff should be trained in evacuation procedures. In the event of a fire, passengers should be quickly and calmly escorted out of the building and given clear instructions about where to wait for further instructions. Clear signage should be present in the airport to ensure everyone can easily identify escape routes and assembly points. Through proper preparation and training, airports can provide a safe environment for customers and staff.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.
