Benefits of CADTRACKER for
HERITAGE BUILDINGS

The CADTRACKER system can be developed to highlight complex escape routes and dead-end sections (blind alley, impasse, cul-de-sac, areas without egress) of a heritage building in order to inform tactical decisions when tackling a fire.
The system can alternatively be used for mobility impaired persons for Personal Emergency and Evacuation Plans. As suitable step free access for means of escape may not be viable in a building of this type and additional assistance is often necessary, the CADtracker will enable assisting personnel to locate users instantly.
