A typical server room fire suppression system installation would utilise a standard fire suppression detection / release control panel approved to EN 12094-1.
This would utilise two or more optical smoke detection zones. Double Knock activation would be used. Manual release button would be fitted and there may be remote release and activation points depending on the size of the installation.
The server room should be fitted with a beacon and klaxon would to give warning that the system is about to discharge after the pre determined delay period.
The DSPA units which would be mounted at high level typically on the ceiling, would be activated automatically and would discharge to suppress the fire.

Dry Sprinkler Powder Aerosol (DSPA) is a revolutionary fire extinguishing technology that:

– is activated electronically, thermally or manually
– is non-corrosive and non-conductive

– functions in a large temperature range
– is not stored under pressure
– requires no water
– keeps oxygen levels intact
– is harmless to humans and animals
– is environmentally friendly.

Server Room Fire Suppression

DSPA has been installed in a wide range of premises where alternative fire suppression systems are just not practical or are price prohibitive.
DSPA is an aerosol gas which, like Halon, acts volumetrically to reach those places that are difficult to access.
It requires no pipe work or pressure, so it is easily fitted retrospectively with little or no disruption.
Importantly, the small amount of residue following activation can be easily cleaned away, either by cloth or vacuum. DSPA substantially reduces property damage caused, not by the fire itself, but by alternative extinguishing methods.

Why use DSPA as a solution for fixed installation fire suppression?

– More effective than Halon
– Cost effective
– Non-toxic, non-corrosive
– Certified
– No pressurised storage
– No leaks, no refills
– Safe to transport and install
– Suitable for hard-to-reach areas
– No mechanical moving parts
– High reliability
– Minimum maintenance
– Stand-alone or integrated systems
– No pipe work nor nozzles, manifolds or distribution hardware
– Easily installed, can be retro-fitted/

– Discrete
– Will work with most fire alarm systems

As well as being non-conductive and non-corrosive, DSPA systems require no pipe work or pressure; this allows for the minimum of disruption and downtime when installing. Such flexibility means that the units can be located at the points where the electronic circuitries are most vulnerable to fire. DSPA will extinguish a fire in seconds and is rapidly becoming the preferred choice of fire extinguishing solution for server rooms and IT installations.
