Fulfilling New Zealand standards for fire safety is a vital part of any commercial project. Colt Products and Systems worked with the architects, fire and acoustic engineers to provide and install Colt products and systems in various areas of the station.

The Colt Smokemaster Electric Smoke Curtain, suspended across the entire ceiling void above the platforms, is invisible until required. All sheetmetal componentry in this product was powdercoated in matt black to blend in with the roof.

Colt Products and Systems also supplied and installed the Colt Universal stainless steel double bank louvre system and acoustic louvres onto the two air intake towers, as well as the powdercoated aluminium triple bank louvres onto the east entrance buildings.

Colt Products and Systems manager Andrew Oakley says all products had to meet the architects' aesthetic requirements as well as satisfy the relevant New Zealand standards.
