Fire protection of archives

How Inergen works in archives

An inergen system responds quickly and completely automatically to any fire that may occur in the archive.

At the same time, it is safe for people to remain in the premises.

    How it works

    How Inergen systems work in a data center

    The Inergen® fire suppression system is an automated solution designed to swiftly and effectively extinguish fires. It employs an aspiration system, which incorporates highly sensitive fire detection technology capable of identifying fires in their initial stages. Once a fire is detected, Inergen® is promptly released into the room. Reducing the oxygen level just enough to stop combustion, without posing any risk of harm to individuals present.
