Oxygen Reduction

Hypoxic Systems


A hypoxic environment is an environment where the oxygen level is reduced. Reducing the oxygen level in a room from 21% (normal atmosphere) to 16% - 14% (depending on risk and fire class), prevents ignition from all common ignition sources. For human respiration such atmosphere is comparable with a passenger plane or a mountain resort (2140 meters or 7.000 feet): safe without any side effects.

Data centres and server rooms are perfect examples of rooms with the highest risk to business continuity after a fire. Fast detection of a fire is not enough. Even the smallest fire, while effectively extinguished, can cause down times and consequently enormous costs. A permanent prevention of the cause of the fire is therefore desirable solution.

For applications like server rooms, data centres, archives, electrical sub stations, and museums, SolarFire Systems offers a permanent oxygen reduction system that create a permanent hypoxic environment. The permanent oxygen reduction systems is the only available system that actively prevents a fire from starting in the first place.

Utilising revolutionary fire prevention technology. It has the unique ability to create a breathable oxygen-reduced (hypoxic) environment which prevents flame ignition and, at the same time, is safe and healthy for human occupants.

  • Absolute safety for human beings

    Produces and uses breathable air for fire prevention thus avoiding any hazard to human occupants and any damage to the prevented rooms and their content.

  • Environmental friendliness

    uses natural, ambient air as its resource – no chemicals, no gases or similar are involved. The fire preventions agent is simply hypoxic (oxygen-reduced) air. Nothing is added.

  • Simple installation

    No piping is necessary. Systems are designed and engineered then made in the factory, reducing installation times significantly.

  • Unmatched fire safety

    Prevents fire proactively instead of suppressing it after it has started and damage has already occurred.
