Data centers are well-oiled machines that are used by almost all modern industries, but just like anything else, things can happen. It’s how we learn from the situations and incidents that help people, businesses, and industries altogether grow.
The majority of the data centers still require sprinkler protection, with gas fire suppression system protecting the equipment and sprinklers protecting the room. Double interlock preaction sprinkler systems are usually used to prevent accidental discharge. We provide air sampling systems for detection, as well as integration between detection and suppression.
Viking fire suppression systems are designed to detect a fire as soon as it starts and suppresses it immediately. The goal is to prevent the fire from spreading to other areas. If the system detects heat and flames, the system is set off and it begins the process of suppressing the fire.
Engineered fire suppression systems work by flooding the room with what is called a “clean agent”, which is made up of gases that can suppress the fire without harming the equipment, and more importantly, the people working in the data center.

We have the solution for your project
EOC – Emergency Operations Centre
The new EOC project will soon become the main operations centre for the City of Calgary’s various emergency services, such as the local police, the fire department and emergency medical services. This large-scale project will be fitted with high technology equipment.
Datacenter – Nova Scotia Power
Nova Scotia Power has been the main supplier of energy in the province, for more than 80 years. In 2008, the Nova Scotia Power Corporation has made the environmentally friendly choice to replace their halon installations with the FM-200 gas, an extinguishing agent with low impact on the environment. With recognized expertise in the replacement of halon gas, Viking Fire Protection proceeded with the gas recovery in accordance with the strict regulations in effect.
Throughout the project, we found that Viking was professional in their design and installation abilities. They worked well with our technicians and helped provide solutions to seamlessly integrate their suppression systems with our existing equipment. We have found them flexible and accommodating in their work as our site is semi-remote and full of sensitive equipment.Marc Germain, CBC / Radio-Canada
