Data Center Specialist
Specialized Fire is proud to offer a complete data center fire suppression solution. Our team will handle the process from design to final acceptance, but we don’t stop there. Specialized Fire has advanced strategic partnerships with professionals in the electrical, HVAC, flooring, and general contracting fields, all of whom work as a team to complete data center projects.
Data centers feature fire protection systems, including passive and active design elements, as well as implementation of fire prevention programs in operations. Smoke detectors are usually installed to provide early warning of a developing fire by detecting particles generated by smoldering components prior to the development of flame. This allows investigation, interruption of power, and manual fire suppression using hand held fire extinguishers before the fire grows to a large size. A fire sprinkler system is often provided to control a full scale fire if it develops. Clean agent fire suppression gaseous systems are sometimes installed to suppress a fire earlier than the fire sprinkler system. Passive fire protection elements include the installation of fire walls around the data center, so a fire can be restricted to a portion of the facility for a limited time in the event of the failure of the active fire protection systems, or if they are not installed.
