Suncorp, the insurance, banking and wealth management group need to protect business critical electronic equipment at an administration centre. Their vital PABX telephone systems and UPS uninterruptible power supply installations needed to be safeguarded in the event of a fire. Sustainably was a key factor as in the past this equipment used to be frequently protected using Halon 1301, an ozone-depleting gas that has been banned for the past decade.
Working closely with the project’s consultant sustainability engineers, Norman, Disney and Young, and fire protection system installation company, Premier Fire Queensland, Delta Fire installed two dedicated gaseous fire suppression systems which are the latest generation of clean agent fire suppression systems. These utilise an agent that combines outstanding suppression performance with excellent environmental characteristics. They also represent no health risk to staff.
Delta Fire’s recommendation to use the Janus Novec 1230 gaseous system means that Suncorp has fire protection that has zero ozone depletion potential, a global warming potential of just one, an insignificant five-day atmospheric lifetime, and a large margin of safety for occupied spaces.
