Aigner Fire Curtains – A new development for safety in
road tunnels

18 April 2008

As part of the construction of the new tube “ASFINAG” decided to install new safety measures in the Roppen Tunnel. Therefore our Aigner FireCurtains will come into action!

In case of fire the curtains will close automatically to reduce air velocity in the tunnel. This will ensure proper operation of the ventilation system so that smoke is removed and people can leave the tunnel safely! Therefore clearly visible signs on the curtains show a directional arrow (EXIT) and invite to drive through slowly. Vehicles as well as pedestrians can pass through the FireCurtains very easily and safely.

This sophisticated system will also be installed in the Roppen Tunnel. In a first step the new tube will be equipped and followed in a second step by the second, reconstructed, tube.
