Freezer Warehouse Fire Protection
Value-added convenience chilled and frozen foods are the fastest growing segment of the food and beverage manufacturing market. Processing, packaging and distributing temperature sensitive products poses many challenges to refrigerated and frozen food industry professionals, especially those in the cold storage/logistics sector of the business. The cold chain channel includes Warehousing and Distribution Centers that are mission critical.
Freezer Warehouses pose a difficult application for fire protection due to extreme temperatures, air velocity, and high ceilings. Cold storage logistics providers serving the refrigerated and frozen food markets cannot allow a fire to cause failures that could jeopardize temperature control in the warehouse. Traditional smoke detection will not function at the temperatures found in frozen warehouses.
