The Royal Library in Copenhagen was looking for a reliable solution to protect their valuable, irreplaceable collections against fire in the new storage building. A comprehensive solution tailored to the special needs of books and documents was required. The Royal Library was very thorough when evaluating the proper extinguishing solution. A team with consulting engineers and fire department representatives supported them. Finally, SinorixTM H2O Gas was chosen as the ideal solution as it offers double protection: nitrogen extinguishes the fire efficiently and water mist prevents from reignition.

The Royal Archive, Copenhagen, Denmark

The goal was to protect the old building of the Royal Archive in Copenhagen – which is more than 400 years old – and historic documents against fire. For an effective protection, a large-scale extinguishing system was required but only limited space was available. Siemens was able to offer a fire safety solution tailored to the specific requirements and risks of fire. The extinguishing solution Sinorix H2O Gas offers optimal protection for the irreplaceable values. It releases a precisely calculated and carefully balanced mixture of nitrogen and water mist over the required extinguishing zone in an emergency. This ensures that a fire is extinguished quickly and safely.
