Notre-Dame Roof Structure-Up in Flames
The historical significance of Notre-Dame Cathedral is iconic, the fire event that unfolded before the world in April 2019 was tragic in both a biblical sense and from a fire protection perspective.
The fire devastation witnessed by the world has certainly caused a ripple effect in the fire protection industry that has been felt throughout Europe and indeed around the world.
This has certainly put custodians of other significantly cultural and heritage listed buildings on notice, who are now turning their attention to the current level of fire protection measures (or lack thereof) installed within buildings of similar stature in their own domains.
In Australia, Fire Protection Technologies have begun to work with engineers and custodians of several historical buildings in order to assess the current fire protection measures and assist with recommendations for enhanced fire protection in order to avoid a repeat of the Notre-Dame fire.
Our supply partner, FOGTEC Brandschutz GmbH, have available tested and certified High Pressure Water Mist Systems specifically designed to protect roof structures in heritage and cultural buildings and have already installed many such systems throughout Europe.
In conjunction with Fogtec, Fire Protection Technologies have the required engineering skills and proven systems to assist in the design and implementation of suitable fire protection systems to protect all types of historical and culturally significant buildings.
