Car parks don't need to be sprinklered normally so this one wasn't. Most have just a Category M system, although newer builds and upgraded older ones are usually now provided with stairwell detection.

The fire alarm systems are for life not property and so despite the total loss fire,the fact that no relevant persons were harmed means it's unlikely any legislation was breached.

Basement car parks under buildings usually have more detection (they used to be provided with sprinklers in the days before widespread use of automatic detection) and where property protection is a concern it's also found. Usually point heats or sometimes linear heat cable.

The arena itself is protected by a vigilon which was installed by Honeywell themselves so I’m sure that the car park will be running the same.

The car park opposite is one we used to maintain and that had an L3 system in.

From what I’ve read, the brigade were on site within 4 minutes of the alarm going through it just spread quickly.

You sure about that? Last time I was there on a fault it was a Protec 6400 system.

Your right, I didn’t mean the arena, I meant The Q-parks parking complex

Its very hard to think of a decent way of protecting a car park.

Dust, dirt, vehicle emissions, open areas leading to high air currents, condensation in unheated areas, vandalism from people, despair from management organisations who after a while expect the system to be damaged almost continually...

Any a.f.d. will quickly be affected by all of the above.

I wonder who pays for the insurance?

One of our lads had his car in the car park and his insurance are sorting him out for now until they know whats going on.
