Underground Parking Garages
Underground Parking Garages represent a significant risk of exposure to hazardous materials through vehicle exhaust. Without continuous ventilation, Underground Parking Facilities can see a rapid buildup of toxic chemicals like Carbon Monoxide (CO) and Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) – which are common byproducts of vehicle exhaust. Underground parking garage ventilation systems help with the detection of Carbon Monoxide or Nitrogen Dioxide. When these toxic fumes are at dangerous levels, they require an immediate increase in ventilation.
Gas Detection and ventilation monitoring are required by building and fire codes for most underground parking areas. Make sure that your CO sensors for parking garages are up to code.
As CNG and Propane technologies move forward, there will be additional sensing requirements due to the flammability and explosive potential for these new vehicle fuel sources.
