Fires in car parks are on the up.
Make sure yours is maintained by Colt.

Competency is crucial

In the last three years, the number of fires in car parks associated with apartments has increased. There have been several high profile fires in major car parks in Liverpool, Derby, Nottingham, Leicester, Newcastle and Thurrock. Any fire can be a dangerous and frightening experience. But a fire in a car park is even worse: often underground, with unnoticed or forgotten escape routes and unfamiliar layouts.

Smoke Control and Carbon Dioxide extraction systems within car parks, whether stand -alone or below apartments or office blocks, need to maintain a clear means of escape for users from thick smoke of a fire. They must also enable the fire brigade to get to the seat of the fire to tackle the blaze as quickly as possible to prevent loss of life or further damage.

Whatever smoke control system is in place, it is imperative that the system is maintained to the original Cause and Effect by a professional, certified, competent company like Colt under the RRO, even if they were not manufactured by Colt.
