The health and safety of people should always be the first concern for fire protection measures, but for many businesses it’s also important to have defences for equipment critical to their business operation.
The damage caused by a fire to specialist machinery or servers containing valuable data goes far beyond financial losses. Many businesses never entirely recover, losing orders, contracts and key employees during the interruption, and may even go out of business altogether.
Fires in computer and server rooms are typically caused by power problems in raceways, raised floors and other concealed areas.
While a detection system will identify the presence of fire, a properly designed gaseous fire suppression system can help reduce and could prevent losses altogether.
