Cold Storage Fire Protection Eau Claire Wisconsin

Cold Storage Fire Protection in Eau Claire, Wisconsin

As one of few U.S. contractors licensed to install Quell systems, Ahern provided complete and code-compliant protection to Central Storage’s 65,000 square-foot cold storage/freezer facility without the need for in-rack sprinklers. This eliminated the maintenance and damage concerns associated with in-rack sprinklers. This Eau Claire, Wisconsin facility was completed on time, thanks to Ahern’s ability to drive the schedule and use of its in-house prefabrication shop.
