Because of the value of items is extremely high, preventing fire proactively is much more feasible than suppressing it after it has started and damage has occurred.
b-Cat has all the technology in house, from small rooms till complete warehouses and storage erea’s. With one central control unit can regulate up to a 100 rooms simultaneously, no matter whether these rooms or spaces are used for fire prevention, conservation of art, or natural fumigation of food products against insects; the system can control for them all at the same time.
Because the equipment in server rooms is of high value, preventing fire proactively is much more feasible than suppressing it after it has started and damage and business interruption has occurred. Proactively preventing fire also minimises potential for server downtime as a result of fire damage, and for a lot of companies, that is even more important than the physical value of the servers
We lower the oxygen permanently lower to hypoxic level in the protected archive room from the normal sea-level percentage of 20.9% to a value of between 15% and 17%, at which point combustion becomes impossible.
This way the stored materials are safe and access of employees is not a problem, they will be in the mountains around 2.400 meters Altitude.
There are more museum objects in the depot than are actually on display. Of course, here it counts as well, preventing a fire is more important than extinguishing a fire. With the b-Cat system it is permanently protected against fire. Prevention is better than restoration of irreplaceable objects.
Due to the extremely low level of air humidity, the chance of fire in a refrigerated warehouse is extremely high, despite the sub-zero temperatures. By lowering the oxygen level to a value which combustion becomes impossible, the risk is almost completely eliminated.
