One of the greatest challenges in fire protection of large hotels is always the ignorance of the premises. Although the hotel staff should be able to deliver proper instructions on how to behave in case of a fire, the reality usually looks much different. Human beings and especially the hotel guests are to be protected with hightest priority and they are absolutely dependent on a controlled evacuation by the rescue teams supported by are sophisticated fire protection system. In order to avoid panic in an emergency, an effective elevator control as well as the possibility to evacuate floor-by-floor are part of the fire rescue concept of every hotel. Distinctly marked escape route systems including both optical and acoustic signalling, are also of the utmost importance.

Personal protection and evacuation in the foreground
A lack of knowledge of the premises is a recurrent and fundamental problem in the fire protection of large hotels. Although the staff should also be able to give proper instructions in case of fire, the reality is usually different: The hotel guest, the first protection target, is almost exclusively dependent on a regulated evacuation by the rescue services and the structural fire protection. In order to avoid panic in the event of an incident, effective elevator control and the possibility of floor-by-floor alarming are therefore part of the fire rescue concept of every hotel. The escape control system, i.e. the visual and acoustic marking of escape routes, is also of particular importance.
