Museums and Libraries Fire Risks

Humanity’s collective history and knowledge are stored and safeguarded in museums and libraries everywhere. Museums typically hold countless artefacts, antiques, rare books and paintings, and countless historical documents. All these unique and valuable objects are stored together, with many of them being old, and very combustible. Preserving these items for future generations is only possible if we use a holistic approach to fire prevention, rather than rely on traditional fire suppression technology.

  • High concentration of flammable materials due to the storage of paper, cardboard, and conservation agents in a restricted space.

  • Very fast propagation of fire once its starts as a result of the close proximity of these objects in a single space.

  • Any amount of smoke or soot can be damaging to important pieces.

  • Traditional water systems will end up causing as much damage as the fire and smoke.

  • Potential for financial loss could be astronomical. The loss of heritage is incalculable.
