The clients requirements

Recently Chemstore were proud to announce the completion of the first batch of TER (telecommunications equipment rooms) units for Irish Rail. This is part of a two year national contract secured by Chemstore. This project is being closely managed from design phase all the way through to production & delivery ensuring the highest level of quality is achieved. This key contract is a testimony to our constant goal to develop and improve solutions for the safe storage of hazardous material and critical equipment. It outlays a new market for Chemstore to serve and working with such a key national organisation for transport is a proud undertaking for the Chemstore team. The goal of this project was to meet Iarnród Éireann’s requirements for TER’s for use at a number of locations on the rail infrastructure to accommodate railway telecommunications equipment & technology.

One standard room is sized as follows: Internal measurements 3.6m (L) x 2.4m (W) x 2.6m (H).

The equipment rooms fully comply with the BR 1615 specification.

There is one Mitsubishi wall mounted inverter heat pump and air conditioning cassette unit has been fitted to each unit delivering 2.5Kw on cooling and delivering 3.2Kw on heating.

A single zone fire alarm system with smoke detector has been fitted in the room complying with BS 5839 and current Irish legal requirements.
