Why silent extinguishing?

Protecting the beating heart of your business

Data is at the heart of modern society. The vitality of businesses small and large is now so heavily reliant on electronic data that losing such data is possibly one of the greatest risks to business continuity and even the survival of entire companies. Do you have the right fire protection concept to keep your data safe? In case of a fire it is not only essential to react quickly and efficiently, but also that any damage to the costly and sensitive electronic equipment can be kept to a minimum. Our Sinorix Silent Extinguising Technology was specifically developed to keep modern data storage systems safe and ensure business continuity even in case of a fire.

Choosing the right extinguishing system is the key

When choosing an extinguishing system, consideration also needs to be given to whether the system itself can cause any further damage to electrical or electronic devices. For data centers and server rooms, automated gas extinguishing systems are highly recommended as the gases they use do not harm sensitive technology. However, in 2009 an unusual amount of hard disk drive (HDD) disruptions was reported after discharges of these systems, so we began an investigation into why this was occurring. The findings concluded that magnetic hard disk drives are noise-sensitive. In response, we developed our Sinorix Silent Extinguishing Technology which significantly lowers the noise level during gas discharges. The experience we offer gives you the peace of mind of knowing that all aspects of data centers’ and server rooms’ needs are covered.

Safe extinguishing for data centers and server rooms: the Sinorix Silent Nozzle

Different factors can help reduce the noise level during a discharge, such as improving the room acoustics or extending the discharge time. Our research identified nozzle design as one of the main contributors to reducing noise. That is why the Sinorix Silent Nozzle is the heart of our Sinorix Silent Extinguishing Technology. Its unique, linear design ensures that the noise level during discharges remains below the level that poses a risk to HDDs. In addition, by controlling the direction of the gas discharge and hence the sound waves, the Sinorix Silent Nozzle prevents sound-generated HDD malfunctions during extinguishing. Of course, the nozzle also ensures the smooth and efficient distribution of the extinguishing agent.
