Fire-resistant doors to collocation halls, smoke and fire sensors in the double floor and ceiling, as well as remote monitoring complement the overall system.

The cooling systems purify both the air and its moisture, ensuring the equipment maintains its working condition even after 10-15 years of continuous operation.
