Why is Data Centre Room Integrity Testing so important?

Posted By Richard Warren, Workspace Technology Limited, 17 February 2017

Why Room Integrity Testing is so important?

If you have a gas suppression system, a room integrity test is of fundamental importance in order to check the ability of the enclosure to retain an effective concentration of gas, which is critical to the safe operation of the system.

Companies risk losing millions of pounds with one single data centre glitch, therefore in the event of a Catastrophic Data Centre Fire a company may not only lose operability, but consequently go out of business.

  • How would a loss of service affect you?
  • Do you have safeguards in place?
  • Would you be able to recover?

Workspace Technology offer a selection of Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) services including Room Integrity Testing to protect your business.

Once a Room Integrity Test has been completed, Workspace Technology will provide either a Pass Certificate, which can be used as a reference for insurance purposes, or a complete details report indicating why the test failed and what need to be to ensure a pass.

When should integrity tests be done?

1) An integrity test should be performed immediately after a system has been installed and routinely every year thereafter.

2) Any alteration such as changing a door, putting a cable(s) in or even replacing equipment can affect the room's gas holding ability (Integrity), routine servicing of equipment will not reveal this, so an Integrity Test should be carried out after any alteration.

3) Part of a Annual Planned Preventative Maintenance scheduled test.
