What would a business interruption cost your company?

A fire doesn’t have to be large to be devastating to your business. The costs of even a “minor” fire add up quickly. Downtime. Lost work. Lost revenue. Damaged hardware. Lost data. Higher insurance premiums. Potential lawsuits and damages. Bad publicity. Perhaps worst of all, in the hours (or days) it may take you to clean up and resume operations, your customers can lose their confidence in your company’s ability to perform—taking their business and your future revenue—elsewhere.

Critical facilities require fire protection systems which can detect and suppress fires quickly without harming equipment, the facility, or the environment. Clean Agent systems offer the best way to meet this challenge by discharging an environmentally friendly agent in less than 10 seconds, leaving no harmful residue to clean up. Through Fenwal, UNS offers the following clean agent systems:

  • FM-200
  • NOVEC 1230

For data centers, Healthcare Facilities, Co-Location and Telecommunication Rooms. Fenwal Protection Systems is the market leader of premier quality fire protection equipment, fire system controls and facility monitoring solutions to risk conscience companies throughout the global economy.
