Cold Storage Calls For Active Fire Prevention

OxyReduct®: the powerful solution for cold storage warehouse fire prevention

Most people do not associate cold storage with heat and can’t imagine fire to be a problem in these environments. But those in the industry know the opposite is true. Extreme temperatures, dry air and low humidity create a perfect storm for fire to ignite. The high level of automation, common in modern cold storage facilities, comes with its own set of fire hazards. Hidden hot spots include cable breaks, overheated conveyor motors and technical defects in refrigeration units, retrieval vehicles, and packaging equipment. Once a fire starts, the highly combustible insulation and packaging materials used in cold storage facilities do their part to fan the flames. And if all that is not enough, the fire also spreads rapidly both vertically and horizontally among the high racks and narrow aisles of today’s cold storage warehouses. Making matters even worse is the fact that such fires, once they start, become difficult, if not impossible, to suppress with conventional fire extinguishing systems.

In short: the best way to guard against the very real danger of fire and its devastating effects in cold storage warehouse facilities is to prevent them in the first place.
