Keeping valuable items dry with gas suppression.

While sprinklers provide excellent protection to nearly all buildings, water can seriously damage their contents. In areas containing computer rooms, communications equipment or data storage, water ingress can cause as much damage as fire. WhatÔÇÖs more, irreparable harm to your equipment, data loss and downtime can leave your company counting the cost of lost business and an impaired reputation.

Gas suppression systems provide the fire protection you seek without the risk of damaging your vital equipment. Whatever your requirements, Force 3 Security will design, supply, install and commission a gas suppression system that suits the exact needs of your project.

Pressure Relief Damping

A consideration with any Gas Suppression system is pressure relief damping.

As a gas suppression agent is discharged into an enclosure it creates a positive pressure within the enclosure. Should there be insufficient natural leakage within the enclosure structural damage due to the over pressurisation of the room could occur.

At Force 3 Security, we can calculate the correct size of pressure relief damper required for each enclosure and are also able to offer an installation service for pressure relief dampers.
