Hangars

Safety Protection is Paramount

Commercial aircraft costs can exceed $200 million.
Military aircraft cost exponentially more.

Det-Tronics are pioneers in the field of flame detection and protection systems with over 40 years experience as a trusted global solution provider for hazard and critical process areas.

Fire Hazard Detection Challenges:

  • Size of hangars presents huge area to be protected
  • Equipment and aircraft obstruct views
  • Large open doors permit view of external "friendly fire" sources
  • Avionics can generate considerable electromagnetic interference (EMI)
  • Aircraft damage occurs in seconds

Complete Solutions Must:

  • Have a long detection range with a wide field of view
  • Ignore false alarm sources such as EMI and "friendly fires"
  • Respond rapidly
  • Integrate detection, notification, and suppression functionality
  • Place and aim detection equipment for optimum coverage
  • Validate performance during commissioning
  • Use performance-based design that adheres to codes and standards
Protecting aircraft and hangars requires high-performance fire detection and suppression systems. Det-Tronics understands what is needed to meet and exceed the requirements of Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).
