Data Center Fire Safety

Data Center Fire SafetyAn integral component of any data center design accounts for the geographic risks
 a site may pose. These can be seismic or weather related. One of the highest risks, however, is common to every data center: fire.

Given the heat, equipment and electrical systems concentrated within each center, the possibility of a fire is a constant concern. Data Specialties Inc. makes smoke detection and fire suppression a priority in its data center designs.

As with most of the elements of today’s data centers, fire detection and suppression technology is constantly being improved. Data Specialties Inc. stays abreast of the developments and incorporates the latest and most appropriate systems into our clients’ facilities.

Here are 3 questions our clients have about data center fire safety :

1. Does my insurance carrier have any control over which suppression system I use?
2. I have an older Halon system – do I need to change it out?
3. How do current OSHA regulations affect my data center project and subsequent operations and maintenance plan?
