Fire is one of the most significant causes of downtime in data center failures.

Frequent cabling changes complicate Firestop maintenance practices, increasing risk and compromising airflow integrity.

Key Areas addressed

  1. What is firestop and why it is especially important when designing cable runs in critical facilities?
  2. How firestop affects airflow and prevents the spread of contaminants
  3. What designers need to understand to protect assets and improve airflow performance when specifying Firestop solutions in mission critical facility

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Risk of fire in mission critical facilities & principles of fire protection strategies
  • Firestop in codes, regulations and test standards
  • Design strategies to reduce risks associated with frequent cabling moves, adds and changes
  • Firestop solutions for superior airflow control
