GMRT2130 Iss 4

Vehicle Fire, Safety and Evacuation

Synopsis

This document mandates requirements for the provision of rail vehicle fire safety and evacuation arrangements. In particular, it addresses matters of rail vehicle design associated with fire safety, diesel propulsion, emergency lighting, emergency and safety equipment, emergency and safety information and emergency evacuation. Projects should follow the decision logic set out in Annex A of this document (see link below) to identify the valid fire testing requirements applicable to their work. The proposed approach aims to ensure double testing is avoided by existing projects, which may be reliant on GMRT2130 or BS6853, while new projects can rely on EN16989:2018 for fire testing and on EN45545-2 for other fire tests relevant to vehicles. https://www.rssb.co.uk/Standards-and-Safety/Using-Standards/Understanding-and-Applying-Standards//-/media/Project/RSSB/Platform/Documents/Public/Public-content/Using-Standards/2020-05-18-Recommended-Approach-to-fire-testing-requirements-for-Vehicles-V-32.pdf

Summary Of Changes

This document has been revised to align with fire categories in the Rolling Stock Technical Specification for Interoperability (RST TSI) and BS EN 45545:2013, to facilitate open wide gangways, remove duplication of testing between GMRT2130 and BS 6853:1999, revise the requirements for emergency lighting outside of exterior doorways and remove the requirements for emergency lighting to charge luminescent signage. It is supported by a new Rail Industry Guidance Note GMGN2630 Iss 1.
