Fire Suppression: mission critical environments through the installation of effective fire detection and fire suppression systems.


Today’s Server Room and Data Centres, more than ever, are under enormous pressure to maintain operations. Some companies risk losing millions of pounds with one single data centre glitch. Therefore it’s not hard to believe that in the event of a catastrophic data centre fire, a company may not only lose millions but may also go out of business.

Fire protection provides essential security against fire. Simply put, if an environment is incapable of breeding a fire then there will be no threat of fire damage to the facility. In a Network Critical Physical Infrastructure, the main goal of fire protection system is to get the fire under control without disrupting the flow of business and without threatening the personnel inside. The purposes of the Fire Protection System are to:

  • Identify the presence of a fire
  • Communicate the existence of the fire to occupants and authorities
  • Contain and extinguish the fire if possible

Workspace Technology offers a selection of Zero Ozone Depletion gaseous agents to be installed. Deployment will depend upon budgets and physical space availability.

The following table details fire suppression options offered by Workspace Technology.

  • Atmospheric Lifetime (AL) — The time a substance will remain in the atmosphere before it breaks down.
  • Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) — A substance’s capability to destroy ozone, known as its ozone depletion potential (ODP), is expressed relative to CFC-11 (Chloride, fluoride, Carbon mix banned in the late 70’s)
  • Global Warming Potential (GWP) — Is the measure of how much a greenhouse gas contributes to global warming. This signifies the capability of a gas to trap heat within the atmosphere based upon, its capability of absorbing infrared radiation, it lifetime in the atmosphere and what wavelengths of infrared radiation it absorbs.

Room integrity tests are undertaken as part of system commissioning to ensure accurate room percentage gas volumes and also ensures that the fabric of the room is capable of retaining protective gases to ensure effective extinguishing.

Workspace Technology provides a complete turnkey solution. We will undertake all electrical, room sealing and builders works as part of any fire suppression deployment to ensure that the system will pass the room integrity tests.
