Risk management in Data Centers

Our fibre-free firestop solutions reduce unnecessary risks to cable and server functionality

Traditional firestop maintenance activities

In many parts of the world, firestopping is left to specialists who often use inexpensive firestopping materials such as coated boards. Constant cabling additions and changes to data centers require cableways to be continually reopened, often leading to the firestopping material not being properly replaced.

These traditional firestop maintenance activities pose a largely unknown threat in terms of availability and energy efficiency. Even when correctly replaced, conventional firestopping solutions release substantial contamination into sensitive server environments. Third-party institutes have measured particle concentrations up to 2.5 times higher than the recommended limits for data centers.
