Experience Profile: Air Canada Hangars

LRI provides engineering design services for the renewal of fire protection systems in Air Canada’s hangars across Canada.

The renewal of hangars to serve the evolving needs of Air Canada is a significant undertaking. Regarding fire detection and suppression, the retrofit of existing systems is crucial to protect personnel, aircraft and other assets critical to Air Canada’s operations.

Existing fire detection and suppressions systems, some of which date to the original construction of the hangars, are being upgraded across the country. Previous systems (some of which are over 35 years old) required retrofit as they were at the end of their expected service life. Other systems are being retrofit due to renovations of existing facilities and changing demands on the assets being protected. 

LRI has been retained to design the retrofit of existing fire detection and alarm systems, fire suppression systems, special extinguishing systems, and fire protection water supply and fire pump systems. The new systems are designed based on the latest edition of the National Building Code and National Fire Code of Canada and NFPA 409 and utilize sophisticated and advanced technology to protect fuelled small and large body aircrafts.
