At the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, Flamebar BW11 fire resistant ducting is used as part of the fire protection system that safeguards hundreds and thousands of train commuters every day. So as not to disrupt the operation of this busy station, the system chosen had to provide quick and easy installation - Flamebar BW11 fire duct was chosen as it can be prefabricated off site, with quality control checks carried our prior to its delivery.

The prominent public infrastructure project, linking Hong Kong and the Southern China city of Guangzhou, attracted the attention of all major players in the field of fire resistant ductwork systems. Against stiff competition, the Flamebar BW11 fire-rated ducting system was chosen as it fulfilled the stringent requirements stipulated by the authority.

The Flamebar BW11 system is ideally suited for large and sophisticated projects, such as the KCRC, as the prefabricated fire duct is quick and easy to install, unlike other systems, which require most of the fabrication, cutting and fixing works to be carried out on site. Once installed, safe and thorough inspection can be carried out at ground level.
