QUICK ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT FOR AN OPTIMUM SECURITY
If a water fog or sprinkler fire suppression system is used in the white room in a containment situation, it is necessary to ensure suppression of the fire (in the event of an alarm) via an opening in the roof.
For this purpose, Minkels elaborated two highly efficient solutions incorporated in the cold aisle containment systems:
- an opening roof system, either automatic above 50°C or controlled electronically.
- FM-approved Drop Away Panels: they ensure the seamless integration of aisle containment solutions with sprinkler or water mist systems. In the case of a fire in the data center, the plastic Drop Away Panels automatically soften and fall down so that they do not form an obstruction when sprinklers are activated. The system is specifically designed for use with sprinkler installations.
