Fire Detection and Suppression & Environmental Monitoring

Having a well-kept, bug-free and managed IT environment is essential, but securing it and keeping it all in one piece is just as important and is often overlooked.  The costs and business implications of theft and fire can be devastating.

The purpose of environmental monitoring is to gain immediate knowledge of a fire, water leak, increase in temperature  or power outage so that you can act fast and minimize damage to both infrastructure and persons occupying the premises. 

There are numerous benefits to having a fire detection and/or fire suppression system installed in your building.  Below are some of the obvious and hidden costs of a fire which highlight the importance of installing these systems.

Obvious costs:

  • Equipment loss
  • Product/stock loss
  • Data loss

Hidden Costs:

  • Cost of downtime
  • Damage to customer relationships
  • Productivity / Efficiency loss
  • Loss of competitive advantage
  • Employee absenteeism
  • Litigation
  • Clean Up
  • Damage to public image 
  • Medical costs 
  • Regulatory requirements
  • Breach of contractual warranties


Increased heat in a server room is the number one cause of hard drive failure ending in a possible loss of data causing downtime for the company.  An early warning system quickly resolves this.

We all know electrical equipment doesn't like water,  leaving you with a short time to resolve the water leak, so once again, being alerted early is essential.
