Fire Protection Systems
Fire is one of the most potential threats to businesses which are unguarded by protection systems. The damages inﬂicted by ﬁre can be invaluable and often incurable. Protect your business today with ﬁre suppression systems designed to curb the disaster.
Atlas CSF has helped hundreds of data center owner to implement their data center ﬁre suppression strategy over the 18 years in business. Our team of consultant will help you to assess your data center ﬁre suppression needs and proposed you a suitable solution using our broad range of products offering.
Water Mist Based Fire Suppression System
HI-FOG is the world's leading water mist ﬁre protection technology, originally developed by Marioff Corporation for use on passenger ships, but now protecting an increasing range of land-based applications.
HI-FOG combines the extinguishing characteristics of water with the penetrative qualities of gases without any danger to people or the environment.
HI-FOG is an innovative ﬁre protection technology utilising high pressure to produce a ﬁne water mist with average drop size of 50 - 120 µm. HI-FOG combines the extinguishing characteristics of water with the penetrative qualities of gases with no danger to people or the environment.
Application speciﬁc HI-FOG systems have been proved to be successful, for example, in protecting machinery spaces, turbine enclosures, underground railways, computer rooms, hotels, ofﬁce and heritage buildings, offshore platforms and vessels. HI-FOG is the solution of choice especially for applications where superior ﬁre suppression performance, easy installation and minimal water damage are key beneﬁts.
Over 5,000 full scale ﬁre tests testify to the effectiveness of HI-FOG systems. The systems are engineered to meet IMO and NFPA 750 speciﬁcations.
HI-FOG ﬁre protection technology provides safety for people, property and the environment in many diffrerent applications. It is backed-up by a dedicated team whose one aim is to provide satisfaction for the customer.
Beneﬁt of Water Mist Based Fire Suppression System
Conventional low pressure water spray or sprinkler systems can cause considerable water damage. Often the water damage is greater than the direct ﬁre damage. Low pressure systems can be difﬁcult to install especially on retroﬁt projects.
Gaseous systems are unsuitable for many risks because of the difﬁculty of ensuring enclosure integrity,
high recharge costs and the personnel and environmental safety issues associated with certain gases.
HI-FOG systems are at least as efﬁcient at suppressing ﬁre, but water discharge is minimal, so the damage to facilities or equipment is minimised, and clean-up time and costs are negligible.
Pipe sizes are small, making installation easy and fast, particularly in retroﬁts.
HI-FOG uses just pure water, making it totally safe for people, equipment and the environment.
Minimal ﬁre smoke and water damage
Minimal downtime, maximum business continuity
Favourable lifetime cost
Flexible installation with minimal disruption
Minimal space requirements
Safe for people, the environment and property
Comparison of Features - Fire Protection Capability
The table below compares the general ﬁre ﬁghting capabilities of HI-FOG with the other main types of ﬁre suppression technologies:
1) Most gaseous systems will only extinguish ﬁres if sufﬁcient enclosure integrity is ensured.
2) Sprinkler systems are designed to "control or suppress" ﬁres, not necessarily to extinguish them. The primary mechanism is wetting to prevent ﬁre spread. HI-FOG systems however are able to extinguish liquid fuel and spray ﬁres, hidden ﬁres or 3D ﬁres.
HI-FOG's small droplet size means efﬁcient vaporisation of water leading to high energy absorption and gas cooling which helps prevent ﬂashover and re-ignition. Gaseous agents do not cool the gases or air so efﬁciently, and the larger sprinkler droplets vaporise less quickly.
Radiant heat blocking
This principle is not based on vaporisation but on the blocking effect of the large number of small droplets – maximised by the HI-FOG technology.
HI-FOG has been shown to absorb smoke particles and 'scrub' toxic gases in a variety of different ﬁre scenarios
Comparison of Features - Safety During A Fire
The table below compares the safety of HI-FOG with the other main types of ﬁre suppression technologies during a ﬁre:
Whilst the dangers of carbon dioxide systems are well known, the dangers of clean agent halocarbon gases when applied to actual ﬁres are less well known. In particular the high levels of HF (hydrogen ﬂuoride) produced during a ﬁre have raised serious concerns on issues of personnel safety and corrosion damage from several respected ﬁre testing organisations.
Although conventional sprinklers are effective in preventing ﬁre spread, the water damage is often extensive. For this reason HI-FOG systems are increasingly speciﬁed where water damage is a major issue – as in luxury cruise ships, heritage buildings, art galleries, libraries and document stores.
