Fire Detection & Suppression
Ensuring our infrastructure and customer equipment operate safely is one of our greatest concerns. The facility is equipped with advanced fire detection which continuously samples the air for smoke particles. In the event of an alert we have installed a FM200 suppression system.
Pulsant does everything possible to prevent unauthorised access to the site, buildings and data halls as well as to the rack housings themselves. We also have systems in place to identify and react to threats so that your infrastructure is protected from theft, damage or interference. Read more »
