Concentration of Value
The accumulation of significant concentrated asset values in a fleet indicates the potential for a severe single event loss, such as a depot fire, or major collision. The concentration of vehicles may be static (e.g. in depots, workshops) or dynamic (e.g. a multi-trailer combination transporting valuable cargo).
|Congested single parking area for vehicles parked at depots / workshops.||Multiple clusters of vehicles parked in a spacious, secured depot / workshop.|
|Minimal spacing (1-2m) between vehicles parked at depots / workshops that will enable prompt fire spread from vehicle to vehicle.||Good spacing (3m+) between vehicles parked at depots / workshops that will delay fire spread from vehicle to vehicle.|
|Multi-trailer combinations with valuable cargo.||Simple, standard value, dynamic vehicle combinations.|
|Vehicles with specialised fittings, exterior finishes, upgrades, etc.||Minimal specialised fittings, exterior finishes, upgrades, etc.|
- Try to provide at least 3m spacing between each vehicle parked at depots / workshops.
- Try to park vehicles in multiple clusters (rather one large single group) with 15m+ spacing between each cluster.
- All vehicles parked indoors, should be located in buildings that are fitted with remote monitored sprinkler / fire detection systems.
