Drop Away Panels (FM-Approved)
Drop-away panels provide seamless integration of aisle containment solutions with sprinkler or water mist systems. In the event of a fire in the data centre, the plastic Drop-away panels automatically soften and drop down so that they do not cause an obstruction when the sprinklers are activated.
Active pivot roof or passive pivot roof
Through the use of rotating panels, this type of roof allows for the roof panels to automatically open. This ensures that fire suppression gasses or fluids can reach the enclosed construction. Passive pivot roof: the activation of the rotation panels occurs through use of thermic fuses which are activated at 57 degrees Celsius. Active pivot roof: the activation of the rotation panels occurs through the release of electromagnets which are engaged by a micro controller which is part of the system.
