Kao Data Campus has automatic fire detection installed throughout both technical and customer areas, which can also include VESDA (Very Early Smoke Detection Alarm Systems) or HSSD (High Sensitivity Smoke Detector). The fire systems are linked to the central BMS (Building Management System) which reacts to the initial detection with early stage warnings to operators prior to the traditional first and second stage alarms.
A double-knock, water-mist fire suppression system is used throughout our data centres. This system is fully automated and constantly monitored. Early warning smoke detection in all data centres and in individual data rooms (above and below the floor) are available as a customer option.
