Amaral underground public car park - fire resistant basement extraction
Fire resistant basement extraction was installed at Amaral underground public car park, which was built in 2007 to help ease the heavy traffic created by the opening of several big casinos in Macau.Located between a number of popular resorts - Wynn, Grand Lisboa, Crown Casino and Galaxy Starworld - the underground car park can house hundreds of cars and may be populated by a large number of people at any one time. Consequently, safety was of the utmost importance to the authority and project consultant responsible for selecting the fire resistant basement extraction system.
A Flamebar BW11 system was chosen due to its excellent safety credentials, as well as meeting the contractor's tight budget. The ducting was prefabricated and fire-rated coating applied in the factory, eliminating tedious and messy works on site. The lightweight Flamebar BW11 fire resistant basement extraction system was easy to install and passed inspection on site, therefore saving labour costs and time.
