Fire Protection Special Hazards
Our special hazards fire protection systems, or alternative suppression systems, often protect businesses’ mission critical spaces, such as data centers, computer rooms, process chemical areas, and more. These areas are referred to as ‘mission critical,’ because their continued operation is critical to the lifeblood of the business they support.
In the event of a fire, these mission critical areas require non-water based protection systems to remain operational. Our long résumé of mission critical successes allows us to quickly identify the proper systems for your unique space, and efficiently move through design and installation. Because we are fluent in the requirements of over 50 NFPA and IBC codes, engineers and building owners alike often rely on our expertise regarding unique occupancy based hazards.
