Is the data centre at risk of fire?

Updated Oct 31st, 2017 at 11:21 GMT

Our data centre is not at risk of fire. We use a ground breaking Inergen Fire Suppression System supplied and insatlled by Tyco. Essentially if a fire is detected it releases a gas which suppresses oxygen levels enough to extinguish it.

This is built to stringent standards and meets rigorous testing criteria. 

Inergen is an extremely quick and effective gaseous fire suppression agent that consists of 52% Nitrogen, 40% Argon and 8% CO2. When deployed and mixed with air a mixture compromising of 67.3% Nitrogen, 12.5% Oxygen, 17% Argon and 3.2% Carbon Dioxide is created.
