Fire Protection for Archives Libraries and Record Stores

Libraries are organized collections of information resources which are made accessible to a defined community of personnel for reference or borrowing. The libraries provide physical or digital access to materials whose collection may include Books, Periodicals, Newspaper, Manuscripts, Microfilms, Maps, Prints, Documents, Films, Video Tapes, CDs, Cassettes, DVDs, Blu-Ray Discs, E-Books, Audio-Books and Data-Bases. Libraries range in size from a few shelves of books to several millions of items arranged in a multitude of rooms in a huge building. Many of the items found in libraries are of irreplaceable value or in limited editions.

Libraries provide quiet areas for studying, and they also offer common areas to facilitate group study and collaboration. Libraries provide public facilities for access to their electronic resources and the Internet. Modern libraries are increasingly being redefined as places to get unrestricted access to information in many formats and from many sources around the world.

Medical records, health records, and medical charts describe the systematic documentation of a single patient’s medical history and care across time within one particular health care provider's jurisdiction. The medical records includes a variety of types of "notes" entered over time by health care professionals, recording observations and administration of drugs and therapies, orders for the administration of drugs and therapies, test results - (blood tests e.g., complete blood count radiology examinations (e.g X-rays), pathology (e.g. biopsy results), or specialized testing (e.g pulmonary function testing), and many other reports. The maintenance of complete and accurate medical records is a requirement of health care providers and is generally enforced as a licensing of certification – prerequisite. Medical records have traditionally been maintained by health care providers, and are stored in Data Records Rooms within the Hospital or Clinics.

By targeting Data Storage Racks / Exhibit Storage Racks, EQUIPRO can provide a fully automated, 24N fire protection, reliable and cost effective solution that increases safety while reducing potential down-time, risks, damages as well as replacement or repair costs.
 EQUIPRO Direct Action Release (DAR) Systems utilize EQUIPRO proprietary Detection Tubing to reliably and quickly detect a fire and immediately extinguish the Fire. This form of detection does not require any electrical power source, leaving it completely independent. It can however, be used to trigger a shutdown or cut power to minimize the risk of a re-flash and thus further protect the assets.

Direct Action Release Systems (DAR)

EQUIPRO Direct Action Release (DAR) Systems utilizes the EQUIPRO proprietary Detection Tubing as a means of fire detection and also act as a discharge pipe for the extinguishing agent. The Fire Detection Tubing reacts quickly and linearly to heat during a fire and the tubing will burst in the direction of the heat source. This in effect creates a nozzle-like hole in the Fire Detection Tubing which is directed towards the fire, thereby extinguishing it quickly.
