Introducing an Effective and Efficient Fire Suppression System
The Firetrace product came to our attention as a result of an enquiry from a customer who could simply not justify the cost of a full flood system to their secure data room. We were asked if we were aware of any systems which would adequately protect their equipment that did not entail all the complexities of a full flood system.
We had come across the Firetrace product many years earlier and contacted the directors and subsequently visited their premises for a demonstration. After being blown away with the simplicity yet effectiveness of their product we immediately accepted the offer to become a Firetrace supplier and installer carrying out full manufacturer product training.
We went on to fit the system to our clients server racks using only 2 x 2kg cylinders to protect their seven full height racks. Needless to say they were over the moon at the saving they made from a full flood system. They passed their next external audit with flying colours and we still maintain the system to this day.
CGL Supply Water Detection Services for Effective Flood Protection
As part of other works completed by CGL at the above site including fully networked CCTV, access control system and a fire alarm system, we also installed a full Water Detection System to their data centre to give early warning of water ingress. These systems are fast becoming an integral component of good disaster recovery plans and are increasingly being requested by insurance companies. After all, water can be as damaging as fire!
CGL have teamed up with Vimpex who manufacture their own Water Detection system called Hydrosense (download PDF). CGL work closely with Vimpex and can offer a complete design and installation service for these systems. We have applied the same logic to the water detection as we did to the fire suppression system and keep the designs simple yet effective allowing us to maintain competitive pricing and give excellent value for money.
