Because of the highly sensitive nature of the equipment, Internet Switch sites can be an unusually difficult area to protect. Whether located in a stand-alone building or a large facility, we design integrated systems fitted to specific areas and functions.
We understand the critical need for this equipment to keep working, and installing fire protection is a key part of maintaining operational status. ETD utilizes innovative fire protection designs and products to solve these challenges. For most areas, we recommend installing an integrated, fire suppression clean agent along with a smoke detection system. In combination, these products offer the highest level of protection, and help you avoid any unwanted down time.
Elevated Technical Designers have extensive experience with all types of Special Hazard systems. With our more than 120 years combined experience, we know which Special Hazard System Design to recommend for your specific application: FM-200, Inergen, Argonite, Novec and others; we use whichever system is both suitable and within your budget.
ETD constantly reviews new systems and procedures. We have the experience to provide the most sophisticated suppression system designs to protect your unique Special Hazard needs. The goal is to limit down-times, of course, and that’s why we sometimes recommend reserve suppression. In certain cases, this system keeps you up and running better than any other. We want to put out the fire before it starts.
Ask yourself this: Can my business stand to lose operations for 3 to 5 days while the switch site is being repaired or maintained? Do we have a back-up facility or option from which to function if this equipment goes down? If not, how do we minimize an event’s impact? If your company operates like 98% of the industry, those kinds of potential losses are unacceptable. Down-times kill your all-important bottom line. When ETD designs your system, we consider the cost of the most appropriate protection for your equipment, and weigh this against the cost of any potential down-time. We help you protect that "bottom-line" - both ways.
We offer on-time, installation-ready, and code compliant drawings for you to submit to your local AHJ. They’re easy-to-understand, shop-type designs that save time and are ready to present for accurate bids and timely installation. And that spells long-term profit for you and your stake-holders.
