They call them by many names: Office Pods, Office hushes, Phone Booths, Room in a Room, including many more stylized names. They are the latest trend in office design, where the movement is toward more open office spaces, interaction, and sharing. They come in many different shapes, sizes, and features.
The office pod evolution came on the scene so quickly that some manufacturers rushed to market to meet the market demand. Unfortunately, not many manufacturers had the chance to consider the potential hazards these functional workspaces could produce. (UL) Underwriter Laboratories, in an article entitled "The Unseen Hazards of Office Pods" stated that: "These prefabricated rooms —also called pods— and the smaller versions—booths— introduce new hazards that must be considered." Many of the office pods include integrated power, charging, and electronics. If a fire starts within the room or pod, it either requires to trigger the building sprinkler and alarm system or incorporate its separate fire suppression system.
The Haven™ automatic heat-activated fire suppression device is the perfect solution for pod manufacturers. One of the significant advantages of office pods is that most of the pods are factory-built and made to be installed fast. However, the option to integrate office pods with existing sprinklers and alarm systems dramatically decreases the advantages it has in flexibility and speed of installation.
Since Haven™ automatic heat-activated fire suppression device works independently and is entirely self-contained and pre-engineered, giving complete protection without the need of an existing water supply. There is no longer a need to integrate with existing sprinkler and alarm systems. In addition, Haven™ requires no electricity for the operation, which greatly simplifies integration into existing pod designs.
The Haven™ automatic heat-activated fire suppression device extinguishes class A, B, and C fires. During the event of a fire, Haven™ will flood the protected area with an MSDS safe, non-toxic ABC dry chemical powder in a matter of seconds and extinguish the fire.
The Haven™automatic heat-activated fire suppression device protects against fire damage without causing water damage and is also quick and simple to clean after the event of a fire. Generally, simple vacuuming and possibly compressed air are all you need.
