Integration of the
fire alarm system

For kitchens and tent / hall buildings Telia uses non-flammable (A1) materials or flame retardant (classification B1). Due to the proximity of the interim kitchen to the customer’s  production process and to the construction process, the fire protection was particularly in focus. The lightweight hall was therefore planned as a separate fire section, the transition to the dining room was equipped in accordance with safety regulations and defined escape routes. In addition, the interim kitchen was integrated into the factory's pre-existing fire alarm system.

»Ventilation and fire protection are essential
for planning and approval. Interim kitchens
are treated like built-in kitchens.«
