Ventilation fire safety on board ships

Typical challenges in Ventilation Fire Safety on board Ships

Uncontrolled fire is always a serious risk. A fire on board a cruise ship or a ferry is even more challenging as the passengers and crew have to stay on board unless the ship is in harbour or lifeboats are used.
In an emergency situation a fire can spread via a ventilation ductwork. Therefore it is essential that the ventilation ductwork is equipped with high-quality and robust fire dampers that also prevent smoke from spreading and therefore enable safety for escape routes.
Fire dampers should be connected to HVAC automation system where they can also be controlled in emergency situations.
