Data centres are considered critical to business infrastructure, they affect our lives in many ways, from managing the information used to run our cities, to streaming our entertainment and handling the huge amounts of data we produce every day in our working lives.
When we understand the critical importance data centres have in our lives, we can plan to mitigate any unplanned downtime through Business Contingency Management and minimise any negative impact on our business reputations or balance sheets.
Part of data centre Business Contingency Management means understanding the risk of fire and how to deal with its impact. With critical and expensive equipment, often in constant operation, a reliable fire protection solution is required to ensure continued functioning and safeguard highly valuable data, maximizing operational uptime, a key factor for building services engineers and data centre operators. HYGOOD inert gas systems carry many international approvals providing the user of these systems with the confidence that they have been thoroughly and independently tested ensuring the highest standards available in the industry today.
Inert Gases Fire Protection Systems for datacentres
Inert gases fire suppression solutions provides suitable protection for data centres because they are electrically non-conductive, they don't leave a residue and cause little to no damage to critical equipment, unlike a foam or water system therefore downtime of a data server room is minimized and disruption is minimal.

Halocarbon Fire Protection Systems for datacentres
A small fire in critical facilities such as data centres, computer-controlled manufacturing operations can result in catastrophic loss by interrupting vital operations and damaging high-value equipment demand the quality fire suppression offered by our Clean Agent Fire Suppression Halocarbon systems from HYGOOD. These include the
SAPPHIRE system using 3M Novec 1230 fire protection fluid for total flooding applications. The clear, colorless agent has zero ozone depletion potential, an atmospheric lifetime of just five days, and a global warming potential of 1.0. The SAPPHIRE system suppresses a fire before it can be fully engaged and once the fire is suppressed, Novec 1230 quickly evaporates without harming any valuable assets. Read More about SAPPHIRE >>
FM 200 - The FM-200 system uses FM-200 (HFC-227ea) fire extinguishing agent which has zero ozone depletion (ODP). This colorless, odorless agent vaporizes upon discharge and absorbs heat to rapidly suppress fire while leaving no residue to clean up. It does not conduct electricity and will not short-out electronic equipment or thermally shock delicate circuitry resulting in less damage to critical equipment, facilitating a much shorter recovery time and reducing downtime.
