    The Knorr hut, built in 1855, is a shelter of category 1 in 2,051 m height in the Wettersteingebirge on the edge of Zugspitzplatt, southwest below the Brunntalkopfes. It is the nearest shelter to the Zugspitze on Bavarian ground.

  • Info fire protection

    On the Knorr hut the radio fire alarm system SRC 3000 of JOB Detectomat is used. "The main reason for this system was, that we wanted to provide maximum safety for our guests - everytime!" explains Stephan Zehl, architect and responsible for the construction management at the DAV section Munich. He further explains that the radio-networked smoke detectors can be read out via a radio panel and also other elements such as flashers and sounders can be triggered. "Over here more than one person per room stay overnight - therefore we have to regard that the guests might have ear plugs and this is why we require additional optical alarm." Another advantage of the SRC 3000 is that the janitor was easily trained on the detectomat system and by this he is able to perform regular functional tests by himself. So he can explain the safety procedures and escape routes in case of fire to the guests and even demonstrate the sound of the smoke alarm. During the months within the season the janitor is always on site and ensures the operational function of the system.
