Fire suppression systems for electrical cabinets and switchgears
Electrical cabinets represent the most underestimated areas of fire hazards. According to common insurance industry statistics, approximately 30 % of all fires are caused by defects on electrical systems, devices or equipment.
Protecting a switchgear or electrical cabinet means that you have to consider the special situation you are working with:
- The cabinets are often stuffed with equipment and cabling, there is not a lot of space left inside making a proper spread of your extinguishing agent a challenge.
- The cabinets show a high variety of openings, causing loss of extinguishing agent.
- The insulation around cables and electrical equipment represent a high fire load, risking a swift spread to other cabinets or rooms.
An extinguishing system that protects the entire room around the cabinet is not desirable and/or often impossible. GreenEx recommends protecting the cabinets from the inside. This way the fire can be detected in an early stage and most damages can be prevented.
