Fire Wire is a quarterly fire suppression newsletter, provided by 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and developed for specifying engineers, architects and everyone else working in special hazards fire protection.
We would like to thank all those who attended one of our recent webinar events. Over the past few months, 3M hosted six free webinars focused on three critical topics for clean agent fire suppression: Data Center Fire Hazards, Moving Your Clean Agent Specification into the 21st Century, and Marine Fire Suppression. 3M also participated in a virtual conference hosted by a leading U.S. distributor focused on mission critical fire suppression. These events are part of 3M’s ongoing commitment to support the work you do every day through new virtual and remote platforms.
If you missed the webinars or are interested in learning more, you can engage with us through a variety of online resources. Check out your options below or contact us to schedule your next presentation.
The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic is significantly changing how business is done. The outbreak is limiting human-to-human interactions, and many companies have asked their employees to work remotely. With the unprecedented increase in remote work comes an increased dependence on data centers and other mission-critical infrastructure to keep everyone connected and productive. A fire in a mission-critical room causing downtime could be devastating for a company. Learn how companies and academic institutions are protecting their facilities and providing uninterrupted business continuity in the event of a fire:
Fact! The fire tetrahedron includes the four elements that are required for a fire to occur: fuel, oxygen, heat, and a chemical reaction. You can suppress a fire by removing any one of these four elements, and fire suppressants differ in how they extinguish fires. Unlike CO2 and inert gas agents which displace the oxygen in the room, 3M™ Novec™ 1230 fluid removes the heat. With so many people working remotely, companies cannot afford an interruption or downtime due to a fire. 3M™ Novec™ 1230 fluid will help you maintain business continuity. Because there is no time for downtime.
