Fire Protection: – Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre & Communication Centre.
Fire Suppression Systems
Fire is the most destructive risk to any business. A fire in a Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre & Communication Centre will have a devastating effect on an organisation. TechNocRacy employs best practice techniques at every level: preventing fire through design and planning, detecting threats early through monitoring and suppressing fires quickly in the event of combustion.
Fire detection and suppression is a top priority in a Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre & Communication Centre design process. Today’s centres are under enormous pressure to maintain operations without interruption. In the event of a fire catastrophe in a centre, a company will lose equipment, productivity, and most importantly, lives.
The most costly way to stop a fire is to have, to suppress it. Our risk assessment methodologies are stringent, designed to identify and mediate threats at the earliest opportunity and at every opportunity that it my appear. For a demanding 24×7 environment, it is possible to design and implement a centre where a fire simply cannot be started.
Air sampling early warning systems are often used to safeguard air quality and prevent unnecessary gas discharge.
Fire protection must be incorporated in to the overall design because of the interaction with other elements like air conditioning, monitoring and room construction. We specify a wide range of early warning systems to suit different environments, including zone detection sensors (ionisation/optical and thermal) to pinpoint threats.
Industry studies tell us that 43 percent of businesses that are closed by a fire, never to be reopened, and 29 percent of those that do reopen fail within three years. The potentially devastating effects of fire, has created a great demand for state-of-the-art fire protection, detection, and suppression systems.
Fires in centres are typically caused by power problems in raceways, raised floors and other concealed areas. Arson, corporate sabotage, and natural occurrences such as lightning and power surges also increase the risk of fire. That said, fire prevention provides more protection against damage than any type of detection or suppression equipment available. If your centre is incapable of breeding a fire, then there will be no threat of fire damage to the facility.
If a fire does occur, rapid detection is necessary. There are a number of advanced detectors that sense fire in its early stages and then alert personnel and activate suppression systems. The fire protection system’s main goal is detection, evacuation and to get the fire under control in the shortest possible time without disrupting the flow of business and without threatening the personnel in the facility.
TechNocRacy understands the creation, detection, suppression and prevention of fire within mission critical facilities, such as Data Centre, Disaster Recovery Centre & Communication Centre. Our approach to quality solutions will provide your company with the best practices for increasing availability by ensuring effective centre fire protection.
Using the need’s analysis, we’ll guide you through the technologies that best match the environment, budget, risk and operational requirements.
Suppression systems use a variety of methods based on the release of a chemical cooling agent or inert gas. Both methods require a dedicated extraction system in the event of deployment.
