Fireray, fire protection
The huge expanses of this new concourse at Dubai International Airport are protected by Fireray beam smoke detectors.

Fire protection for the new Concourse A of Dubai International Airport is provided by 265 Fireray end-to-end infra-red beam smoke detectors as part of the overall fire-protection system. There is now a total of 860 Fireray products installed in the airport’s four terminals, all of which have high-ceilinged indoor areas.

The new concourse is built to accommodate the double-deck Airbus A380 and comprises 528 000 m2 across 11 floors. It can handle 15 million passengers a year.

Fireray detectors can detect smoke over a distance of 100 m between the transmitter and receiver heads. They also have minimalist visual impact and are easy to install. The first Fireray products at this airport were installed 15 years ago.
