Due to the many different components that are required to operate a data center, there is ample opportunity for a fire to occur. Unfortunately, when a fire takes place, the results can be devastating–especially due to the delicate nature of the equipment and data involved. Overheating data servers and electrical malfunctions are the main contributors to data center fires. In order to avoid the possibility of a fire breaking out, high-quality and trustworthy fire detection and suppression systems should be included in the everyday maintenance of data centers.
Keystone Critical Systems & Advisors is proud to carry Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems within our inventory, as well as maintenance for Clean Agent Sprinkler Systems. With the application of these fire prevention measures, data center owners and operators will never again have to worry about the loss of valuable data or expensive equipment to a fire.
Importance of Adequate Fire Safety Precautions in Data Centers
Smooth data center operation is crucial to the success of your business, so in the event of a fire, adequate fire detection and suppression systems such as Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems could make all the difference. Investing in fire prevention, employee safety, and equipment and data protection are smart measures for your business.
In addition to the safety of your employees, equipment, and data, there are also standard building codes that mandate certain requirements for fire prevention systems–usually based on the use and size of the building. These codes can be difficult to understand, and, if not followed correctly, could result in fines and other consequences for your business. Keystone wants to take the stress off of your shoulders by helping your business navigate local fire code ordinances with confidence and clarity.
Room Modifications Required when Installing Clean Agent Systems
After you decide to incorporate Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems into your business’ data center, there are several modifications that must be made to the room–or rooms–where installation will be taking place. Room modifications are required in order to provide the highest level of fire protection, and luckily, Keystone offers all modifications in a total package deal.

- Fire caulking all room penetrations
