The fire protection system in shopping centres comprises a wide range of coordinated measures.



  • the use of flame retardant materials
  • the use of components with defined fire resistance (creation of fire compartments)
  • guaranteed short escape routes
  • and the installation of fire alarms, sprinklers and smoke and heat ventilation systems.


In most cases, a fire alarm system is used in combination with a sprinkler system for active fire protection. Local guidelines and building regulations must be complied with.
