Sapphire FE227ea Systems – Protecting Your Assets

Water can destroy critical business systems and irreplaceable assets. Fire regulations and sprinkler systems are focused on structural protection rather than protecting building content and assets. The main objectives for a sprinkler system, whether pre-action or wet pipe, are to contain the fire to the room or origin and manage ceiling temperatures to prevent structural damage or collapse. Most companies will require a sprinkler system to protect the building and a water-less fire protection system to protect their valuable assets.

Telecommunication network, financial network, air traffic control, web site hosting centers, electric utilities, hospitals, and other critical business systems reply on FE227ea Water-less Fire Protection Systems to maintain operations and business continuity. The “no downtime” operating parameter is mandatory in these types of environments since a fire at a single facility can have such a widespread effect.

Sprinkler systems allow fires to grow to a level that can cause severe smoke and thermal damage to electronic components. Information is the lifeblood of most companies today. Losing that information can create anything from a minor inconvenience to a major disaster. The consequences can reduce your revenue, expose your organization to lawsuits and harm your company’s reputation.

Managing downtime cost

Based on Government statistics, over 43% of companies that experience a significant fire or disaster never re-open. The collateral damage caused by water is the associated clean up are often just as damaging as the fire. Disaster recovery, if even possible, is expensive and time-consuming. While the probability of having a fire may not be high, the impact to your reputation of your customer records are destroyed? How long will it take to replace your hardware and equipment? FR227ae Systems actually detect and eliminate fire within seconds long before smoke damage occurs. No other system can stop a fire faster. Unlike water, FE227ea is non-conductive and non-corrosive, so its safe to use around all types of electrical equipment. Most important, its also safe for the people that may be working in the area.

Sapphire Fire & Security will design, install and commission an individually tailored detection and suppression system for your asset, that will in addition control and monitor the internal environment so that over temperature damage is limited also.

Cabinet Gas Suppression

Within automatic machinery and control cabinets, cabinet gas discharge to suppress fire will give very early extinguishing of fire before it causes significant damage to the local equipment and well before anything external.

The system can be changed with a variety of gasses including CO2 and FR-227ea both are non-conductive and non-corrosive, so its safe to use around all types of electrical equipment.

Refuge and Fire Telephones

A standard person in a vulnerable position in a building is about the biggest nightmare a fire crew can have. Refuge systems and fire telephones will give secure communications during a fire and allow the rescuers detail they could only otherwise guess. As part of an integrated system this will intake the evacuation process and alert the rescue services to the standard person.

Flammable Gas Detection

Before a fire starts is the best time to remove the fuel that will prolong it, either within an integrated fire prevention system or as standalone gas detection and shutdown system. Sapphire will design, installed and commission a tailor made answer for the question.

Other gases that are readily able to be detected and actioned are Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide, Carbon Monoxide, Hydrogen Sulphide, Chlorine, Ozone, Pentane, Butane, Propane and Nitrogen Dioxide.

Generally gas detection will be sited in areas where gasses are expected to exist under control, but would cause a health or safety alert should the control be lost.
