A suitable fire detection and alarm system for a data centre usually requires a very comprehensive range of measures. It starts with a risk assessment covering the physical aspects of the centre, together with the electrical and mechanical systems and the fire detection and suppression systems.

The risk assessment should provide formal recommendations for the types of fire detectors suitable for use in the various areas of the data centre. The degree of protection may be dependent upon the risk in each area and can be defined as low, medium, high or critical. Fire systems are usually integrated with the main building management system, where the data centre is part of a larger building complex. The risk assessment should also include the requirements of any fixed fire suppression systems. The ZETTLER PROFILE solution can meet all of these requirements.
