Equinix Data Centre, The Netherlands

The impressive data centre facility of Equinix AM3 offers a “digital gateway to Europe”. The entire building is protected with the SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system. The protected areas comprise data halls, corridors, transformer rooms, mechanical plant rooms, switch gear rooms, generator spaces, battery rooms and UPS rooms.

Being able to keep the data centre operating round the clock is critical. With SEM-SAFE®, the Equinix AM3 data centre can function even during a fire extinguishing process.

Heinrich-Hertz Institute, Germany

Situated in the capital of Germany, the Heinrich Hertz Institute, has a worldwide reputation for leading-edge research and development with IT.  With a height of 100 m, the building consists of:

  • Laboratories
  • Laser rooms
  • Computer work spaces
  • Offices
  • Meeting rooms
  • Server rooms
  • Emergency diesel backups
  • Workshop areas
  • Cafeterias
  • Etc.

During the building renovation, it was concluded that a fire fighting system was needed in order to increase the fire resistance.  Minimum water damage was the main criteria when choosing the fire fighting system. With this in mind, SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist was chosen. During the installation of the SEM-SAFE® system, the building continued to be in operation.

Magdeburg, City hall, Germany

Built in the renaissance style, Magdeburg’s old and beautiful city hall has a SEM-SAFE® water mist system installed. Heritage buildings benefit from using a water mist system, due to low water consumption and consequent low water damage, as well as the fact that the small pipes are easily integrated into the surroundings, without harming the irreplaceable building, its interior and fixtures.

Alsion University, Denmark

Alsion was built to create a unique environment in a unique building at a unique location to stimulate regional growth. More than 2,200 nozzles have been installed in this prestigious building. Torben Sten Hansen, from the Danish consulting engineering firm Sloth Møler states: “ The water mist system fits well with the innovative “spirit” characterising this project”.

Shanghai Metro Station, China

Ensuring the fire protection of one of the fastest-growing rapid transit systems in the world was a challenge. Since 2008, more than 6,000 nozzles and over 40,000 micro nozzles have been installed in the metro stations in Shanghai. In addition to the metro line, SEM-SAFE® also covers public spaces and access areas, electrical equipment rooms and technical rooms.
