Fire protection for mission critical facilities
A fire in a mission critical facility, such as an IT&T facility, can be devastating. Effective business continuity management requires an intelligent fire protection system.
Wormald ‘s systems are among the most advanced fire protection solutions in the world, trusted by some of the largest data-dependent organisations in Australasia.
In an IT&T environment, we survey the building taking special note of the location of key equipment, where personnel are located and the tasks they complete, the air-conditioning flow, cable routes and the position of windows, doorways and stairwells. We then design a system to provide effective protection whilst meeting or exceeding relevant Standards.
We combine traditional and advanced technologies to develop fire protection regimes which deliver a risk/cost balance suitable to your operations. We can often install some of our advanced systems into an older facility. This can lower your protection costs while raising your confidence in your fire safety systems.
Wormald are specialists at installing fire detection and suppression systems and our project teams are capable of handling projects of any size. We understand in some cases you cannot interrupt your IT capabilities to install protection systems, and so we have developed ways of working safely around sensitive equipment.
Some of our advanced IT&T fire detection and suppression technology includes:
Alarm and Evacuation Systems
Our MX™ TECHNOLOGY fire detection systems provide very early detection of even slow smouldering fires and can be configured to detect carbon monoxide (CO), smoke and heat. Sensitive analytic tools mean early detection that is critical in a sensitive IT environment. For more information please visit our Alarm and Evacuation section.
SAPPHIRE™ Fire Suppression System
SAPPHIRE™ is a fire suppression system specially designed for use in areas that house sensitive equipment that cannot be shut down. SAPPHIRE™ is designed not to conduct electricity, be non-corrosive, minimise the risk of damage to sensitive equipment and leaves no residue and requires no clean-up. For more information please visit our SAPPHIRE™ Fire Suppression System section.
Inergen® Gaseous Systems
Inergen® Gaseous Systems is designed not to have an ill effect on people or the environment and its components are naturally occurring atmospheric gases. Inergen® is the fire suppression system of choice for areas that contain high value or mission critical assets. For more information please visit Inergen® Gaseous Systems section.
