Fire Protection

Consultancy& Design

Safe data centers are the backbone of today’s highly engineered society, and for a good reason. Whether it is an internal data center or it serves the general public, a failure and a downtime could have a huge impact on the business. The main goal of a data center fire protection system is to contain a fire while protecting the lives of the personnel and minimizing downtime. Therefore, data centers should be designed and deployed in such a way that, even in case of a fire, a maximum availability could be guaranteed. With this in mind, we only offer our clients the best fire protection solutions:

Novec 1230

  • Extinguishes a fire in seconds, before it even starts and long before water-based systems discharge.
  • Helps protect irreplaceable paper documents and electronics. Because Novec 1230 fluid is a waterless fire suppression solution, it leaves no residue and is electrically non-conductive.
  • Provides the highest margin of safety for human occupancy of any clean agent solution.
  • Is not subject to the Halon 1301 phase-out or HFC phasedown under any global regulatory body, including the Montreal Protocol.
  • Comes with a global environmental warranty — the 3M™ Blue Sky℠ Warranty, designed to provide additional peace of mind.
  • Is stored as a liquid and discharged as a gas.
  • Is appropriate for Class A, B and C fire hazards.

Inergen®

INERGEN® is a mixture of 52% Nitrogen, 40% Argon and 8% CO2. However, in the event of a fire, when INERGEN® is discharged, it mixes with the air present in the room to create a mixture that comprises of 67.3% Nitrogen, 12.5% Oxygen, 17% Argon and 3.2% Carbon Dioxide.

INERGEN has been extensively used throughout the world as a preferred gaseous fire suppression agent for over 16 years and remains the longest surviving Halon replacement on the market to date.

Maintenance

Fire prevention is the most efficient fire protection method; thus, it should be an ongoing process in a data center. Innova Engineering’s team is the preferred partner for auditing, maintaining and repairing your fire safety system helping you ensure seamless operations and drastically reduce the potential risks of a disaster.
