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 automatic fire 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 DuPont 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 people safe – they are ideal for protecting your mission critical IT equipment and data.
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..
All Firetrace systems are CE marked and manufactured under our ISO 9001:2008 quality system.
Firetrace offer affordable suppression systems to protect critical items of plant & machinery. The system react quickly and minimising expensive machine damage and downtime. The systems can be easily retrofitted to existing equipment and avoid the need for complicated detectors and electronics.
Firetrace have been manufacturing suppression systems for over 20 Years and have a vast experience in the Fire industry. We have a number of documented success stories where the systems have both detected and extinguished fires on CNC & EDM machines, with little or no damage to the equipment.
