Fire suppression systems are essential to the server room itself – without any human intervention, the system will automatically extinguish a fire, immediately protecting one of the most expensive and valuable rooms in the building for many businesses.

Typical causes of server room fires include electrical failure in the IT equipment, overheated electronics, subfloor wiring malfunctions and fires spreading from other rooms in the building.

Because of the sensitive and vulnerable nature of server rooms, choosing a suppression systems over a sprinkler system can be a vital decision as sprinkler systems cause expensive water damage and may put the business at risk with excessive downtime.
