Piping systems for Fire Station
The new construction of fire station 4 in Munich-Schwabing was a large and technically complex project. Our piping systems were installed for the drinking water system and the compressed air system in the vehicle hall.
New building instead of renovation
The building of Munich Fire Station 4, responsible for fire fighting in the districts of Schwabing, Maxvorstadt, Neuhausen, Freimann, Lehel and in the English Garden, from the 1970s was so dilapidated that the city refrained from refurbishing it and instead decided to build a new modern building. This was built about one and a half kilometres further east on Heßstraße - an imposing building with five storeys, a large carriage hall and a total of 19,000 m² of gross floor space.
The installation work, with a contract volume of over one million euros, was carried out by Liebelt Haustechnik GmbH. The company is active throughout Germany and is currently also working in Munich on the new building of the Biomedical Centre of the Ludwig Maximilian University in Martinsried-Großhadern.
In Fire Station 4, the primary task was to install a drinking water system to supply the washrooms and toilets in the accommodations as well as the station's canteen kitchen. Around six kilometres of NiroSan® stainless steel pipes with diameters of up to 108 mm were laid.
Another part of the project was the high-performance compressed air system in the vehicle hall. This enables the brake systems of the fire engines to be kept under pressure at all times. In the event of a fire, the time advantage thus gained can be decisive. The cars in the hall are connected to the compressed air system; the compressors can build up pressure of up to twelve bar. NiroSan® stainless steel pipes and fittings with diameters of up to 76 mm were installed for the compressed air.
Excellent stainless steel: durability and hygiene
Liebelt Haustechnik chose our NiroSan® press system for good reasons. It is made of the stainless steel material 1.4404, which is characterised by a particularly low carbon content and a high molybdenum content - both of which have a very positive effect on corrosion resistance. In addition, stainless steel is an exceptionally hygienic solution for drinking water installations.
Another special feature: we are the only system technology provider that does not have to rely on external pipe suppliers: The stainless steel pipes are manufactured in our own factory in Berlin. In this way, we can ensure a consistently high material quality.
Easy processing saves time and money
The press fittings are also characterised by our tool compatibility: They can be safely and easily processed with the original SA, V and M press contours up to and including 54 mm. As a result, there is often no need to purchase and stock new expensive tools, there is no risk of mixing up press jaws on site and installation can be carried out very quickly overall. Liebelt Haustechnik appreciates these advantages: "We have been working exclusively with SANHA® products for ten years," says Stefan Dost. "We have had very good experience with them."
