The Fire Risk

Telecommunication companies can rely on enclosed battery racks for power. These battery racks are at risk for your typical electronic distribution threats such as power-line surges, or faulty electrical connections which can cause overheating, short circuits, or arcing. These fires have a large impact with possible disruption in service, loss of information in transit at the time of disruption, and damage to expensive equipment.

Telecommunication companies strive to provide round-the-clock uninterrupted service. This industry includes long-distance providers, wireless services, broadband companies that offer bundled TV, internet and phone, and companies that provide regional services.

The downtime caused by a fire in a remote location or the main office interrupts service for thousands of customers at once. For business customers transactions halt and in the medical field the impact is critical and resuming service is time sensitive. This type of business halt frustrates residential customers and increases the odds of losing customers to the competition.

Vulnerable enclosed areas in telecommunications, cable television, and internet facilities include electrical cabinets, control rooms, substations, transfer stations, and even battery rack rooms.

Fire protection systems in cabinets and rooms are key components of a safety and fire prevention plan. By containing the fire event to the cabinet or room, the damage can be limited.


The Stat-X® aerosol-based fire suppression system does not use water; it is a total flooding system designed to protect the contents of a structure and contain the fire to the protected enclosure. Upon activation the aerosol agent is uniformly distributed throughout the enclosure to suppress the fire. The ultra-fine Stat-X particulates stay suspended in the enclosure until vented and it is an ideal solution for this application.

Make sure you have Stat-X fire suppression system as part of your protection plan.

Stat-X is an EPA Snap listed total flooding Halon 1301 replacement and an alternative to clean agent gas and water solutions.
