IsoMod® Modular Fire Barrier Walls
are installed around electrical transformers to protect
adjacent property and equipment
from fire, shrapnel debris, and other side effects resulting from
transformer explosions. We will be glad to install the walls
for you, or work with an existing contractor.
The consequences of a transformer
explosion are extremely significant. Here at SRE we have
a modular precast wall to fit your
needs from both a cost and an installation standpoint.
THE RISK DOES
EXIST, CONTAIN IT!
IsoMod® vs. Deluge System Option
Risky Deluge System Option:
Deluge systems are not always accountable. Sediments collected in the
pipes, frozen water and poor water pressure all contribute to deluge system
failures. Overall maintenance of deluge systems are a full time job in and
of themselves. In addition, as water from the deluge system and oil from
the transformer overfill the drainage pit, the fire is likely to flow beyond the
limits of control. Engineers are jointly coming to the conclusion that
deluge systems may not be the most effective way to protect surrounding assets.
Secure IsoMod® Barrier Wall Option:
In the unfortunate event of a fire, barrier walls have proven time and again to
effectively contain fire spread and protect surrounding equipment from shrapnel
debris. Once installed, equipment owners can direct their focus to other
crucial tasks as opposed to regularly maintaining the walls.
