For the use of a tyre storage facility, extensive construction and fire protection related measures are required, among them the retrofitting of an automatic sprinkler system.

The sprinkler system is designed in a way that a fire can only be suppressed via a ceiling protection covering an area of 108m². This can only work by using sprinkler heads with particularly high pressures and flow rates.

American and German standards were used to carry out system design and execution:
