DATA CENTRE- FIRE PROTECTION FOR DATA CENTRE EQUIPMENT AND SPACE
Edition 1 Volume 6 2016
Quickly detect and suppress fire directly at the source, efficiently and automatically.
Data centers and server racks present a significant fire risk. In many cases fires happen when today’s hot-running and overcrowded server racks and enclosures fall prey to faulty electrical connections, short circuits, power surges, malfunctioning power supplies and electrical arcing.
A Firetrace automaticfire suppression system can protect your valuable data equipment and data against loss.
Firetrace provides a self-activating standalone fire suppressing solution that detects and suppresses a fire inside of the server rack. Upon detection of fire, the Firetrace system will discharge a “clean” fire-suppressing agent, such as Chemours FM-200 and Novec 1230, which are delivered as a colorless, odorless gas that leaves no residue and requires no cleanup. These clean agents are non-conductive, non-corrosive, and
Firetrace systems are available with an optional pressure switch that can be tied into an emergency power off switch or alarm system to notify you when a fire event occurs.
Firetrace also offers a solution where activation can occur through a smoke detector or building alarm (available on Firetrace Indirect Low Pressure systems only).
And because Firetrace systems do not require any electricity to operate the are functional 100% of the time – even if the server power supply is interrupted!
In addition to in-cabinet fire protection, Firetrace offers advanced E4 Total Flooding Clean Agent systems that are capable of protecting entire rooms in data centers
