When fire shuts down a telecommunications system, businesses are interrupted, financial transactions are halted, emergency response units can be compromised and lives are put at risk. Downtime for a telecommunications company can cost millions. Fire and the resulting halt of business operations translate into lost revenue and customers lost to competitors. Vulnerable areas include data storage facilities, control rooms, substations, transfer stations and even towers. These facilities house a great deal of sensitive equipment and potentially combustible materials. Because they're occupied around the clock, human lives are always at risk from fire.
For telecommunications companies, the urgency to choose a superior fire protection system cannot be understated. Traditional fire extinguishing agents such as water and dry chemicals can cause damage to high-value equipment and contribute to downtime. The DuPont family of fire extinguishants provides an exceptional alternative to Halon. They are safe for people, electronically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue. Keeping the lines of communication open is what matters most--to you and to us.
