Complete Installation of Low-Current Systems DHL’s European air freight hub is putting its faith in Bosch Security Systems
· More than 3,000 fire detectors monitoring air freight hub area
· Praesideo networked digital evacuation system with total output of over 30,000 watts
The new European air freight hub of DHL International GmbH, located at the Leipzig/Halle airport in Germany, has put its faith in Bosch’s security systems. The contract includes the installation of the complete low-current systems for fire detection and evacuation.
The vast dimensions of the building were a particular factor in this application. Due to the predetermined air flow conditions, for example, special flame detectors had to be used in the 30-meter-high hangar. Bosch also fitted the DHL fuel farm with fire detection technology. In total, more than 3,000 fire detectors monitor the air freight hub area. They are connected to two main UGM 2020 control panels and five Fire Panel 500 Series LSN.
The entire alarm system is monitored from a management system in the DHL security control room. The airport fire service also has access to the system’s displayed information. In order to effectively address the public across the buildings, a Praesideo digital evacuation system has been installed. Overall, the system has several networked control panels and a total output of over 30,000 watts.
The air freight hub in Leipzig is one of DHL International’s three central collecting points for air freight around the world. Up to 60 express freight machines handle the express shipments in Leipzig every night.
