Fire Protection Options In Data Centres
Fire is one of the key operational disruption risks due to fire load of infrastructures (electricity, electronics components,) which represents the latent energy produced by the combustion. Therefore, fire safety solutions are a significant consideration for the design and operation of data centres and critical facilities.
The new white paper is co-authored by EUDCA Technical Committee member, Bruno Fery, Head of Datacentre Services, EBRC, and James Perou, Senior Fire Engineer, ARUP. The authors say that data centres present more complex challenges for fire suppression than conventional office buildings due to four main features they possess: open areas, sensitive equipment, climate control and standby power.
