MUMBAI, March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The recently opened new Concourse A of Dubai International Airport has had 265
Fireray end to end infrared beam smoke detectors installed as part of its fire
protection system. There are now a total of 860 Fireray products installed
throughout the airport's four terminals, which feature exactly the kind of
large, high-ceilinged indoor areas that the range is designed to protect.

The new concourse is the first in the world built to accommodate the giant
Airbus A380, resulting in a public space of exceptional size: 528,000 sq m
spread across 11 floors, and the capacity to handle 15 million passengers a
year. The lounges span the entire length of the concourse, making them the
largest in the world, and feature high ceilings, sweeping architectural design
and modern aesthetics throughout. The Fireray's ability to detect smoke over a
100m path between the transmitter and receiver heads, coupled with its
minimalist visual impact and easy installation made it an ideal choice to the
protect the state-of-the-art facility.

The first Fireray products were installed in the airport 15 years ago, and
have suited the environment and served their purpose so well that they have
been specified again and again for refits, renovations and new additional
developments. The latest installation of 265 Fireray end-to-end units was
supplied by Jamal al Majid, local Dubai agent for Edwards.
