Switchgear Room Fire Suppression

The Next Generation of Fire Protection

Talk To An Expert
In an electric power system, switchgear/switchboards and motor control rooms are the combination of electrical disconnect switches, fuses, or circuit breakers used to control, protect, and isolate electrical equipment. Switchgears are used both to de-energize equipment to allow work to be performed and to clear faults downstream. This type of equipment is directly linked to the reliability of the electricity supply and allows high currents and power levels to be safely controlled by automatic equipment. Switchgear equipment in substations are located on both the high and low-voltage sides of large power transformers and may be housed in a separate building.

Fires in substations most certainly impact the supply of power to customers and can affect a utility company’s revenue and assets. These fires have the potential to present a safety risk to utility personnel, emergency personnel, and the public.

Defects, malfunctions, and degraded electrical systems, devices, and equipment are a major cause of fires in electrical rooms.

Fire protection systems in electrical equipment and service rooms are key components of a utilities safety and fire prevention plan. These systems can minimize damage to critical assets and lessen interruption of service in the event of a fire. These 24/7 fire suppression systems are designed to automatically suppress and control a fire at an early stage to minimize the risk and damage.

The Solution

Our in-cabinet automatic fire suppression is ideal for individual electrical enclosure. We can protect all sizes of electrical cabinets up to large electrical rooms.

Stat-X® fire suppression provides the end user with a means to contain the fire to the enclosure. When a fire breaks out, the Stat-X aerosol system quickly detects and suppresses the fire within seconds. This minimizes the damage to the cabinet and allows the facility to return to its normal production state. This limits the fire to the enclosure and prevents the fire from spreading to the full room. By containing the fire event to the cabinet, the damage can be limited.

Why rely on the full room system just to extinguish a fire in a single electrical enclosure?
