Autopia Shopping Centre
Everything for the car
About the project
The Autopia Shopping Centre in Istanbul is the only one of its kind in the world. On an area of 117,000 m2, over three floors, the building offers everything you could need for your car. There are around 500 shops that showcase new and used cars. Visitors will also find workshops, insurance companies, tax offices and around 50 restaurants. It's also possible to test drive a car on the 800-metre test track on the roof of the shopping centre. Buying a car couldn't be any easier. The project also boasts an impressive design and was awarded an international architecture prize.
About the solution
Shrack Seconet have installed MTD 533X CUBUS multiple sensor detectors, which can detect smoke and heat, throughout the Autopia complex. In the corridors, the detectors assess and gauge only the heat, thereby preventing misleading alarms caused by vehicle exhaust gases. In other areas, intelligent multiple sensor detectors evaluate and guage heat and smoke together. Compared to a separate analysis, this considerably reduces the risk of false alarms. In addition, a total of seven integrated IP fire alarm control panels are used on site to network the 1,250 detectors with several sensors. In the long term, the continuous use of MTD 533X CUBUS multiple sensor detectors offers important flexibility: The detectors can be easily reconfigured, if necessary.
