The Stockholm metro transport system has over 100 stations to carry close to a million passengers per day. First opened in 1950, the Stockholm metro system has been called 'the world's longest art gallery' with more than 90 of the network's 100 stations decorated with sculptures, mosaics, paintings, installations, engravings, and reliefs by over 150 different artists.

The Stockholm metro recently selected Xtralis VESDA VLI smoke detectors to protect their customers, staff and world-class system against smoke & fire threats. Upon evaluating options, one concern was the enormous size of each maintenance depot and how to completely monitor that space, especially in underground stations with high contamination levels, where dust accumulates and can mask actual smoke threats. With very early & reliable smoke detection and excellent resistance to dust, VESDA VLI by Xtralis was the obvious choice as it also provides a safe working place with no business interruption during operations.

“Nothing else came close to the capability of the VESDA VLI,” said Kjell Stensiö, Sales Manager at TMP Alarm AB, a leading fire protection and security installer in Sweden.
