Elizabeth Line - Crossrail

Underground and enclosed environments pose unique fire and smoke safety challenges. When Crossrail needed high-quality and robust dampers to provide a safe travel experience for their passengers on the transformational Elizabeth Line, MAP took on the ambitious project and rose to the challenge.

With over thirty years of experience in supplying fire dampers for this type of under platform extract system, MAP was pivitol to the project. Advising and providing technical and product support throughout, we ensured the stations on the new Elizabeth Line Network met the exacting fire safety standards required, ensuring safety during day to day operations as well as in an emergency situation.

When Crossrail needed high-quality and robust dampers to provide a safe travel experience for their passengers on the transformational Elizabeth Line, MAP took on the job and rose to the challenge. As part of the Crossrail project, the Elizabeth Line stretches more than 60 miles from Reading and Heathrow in the west through central tunnels across to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.  Stopping at 41 accessible stations, it has the capacity to serve around 200 million people each year.

It is crucial that underground environments remain well ventilated and that air quality is maintained for both passengers and staff. HVAC equipment plays a key role in ensuring safety. As industry leaders in ventilation, we advised and supplied the fire dampers, tested to EN1366-2 fire standard safety, to ensure the stations on the new Elizabeth Line Network met the exacting standards. Two hour fire rated BSK4 dampers were also installed in parts of the ventilation system including low level platform and back of house areas. Effective fire dampers help to prevent the spread of flames through ductwork, minimising damage and danger wherever possible.

With over thirty years experience in supplying fire dampers for this type of under platform extract system, MAP played a key role in delivering technical and product support throughout the project.
