Novec 1230 Suppression System

Novec is an excellent choice for those clients who prefer a greener alternative to FM200. Like FM200, Novec 1230 gas benefits from a reduced volume making it easy to store within the server room space. This system has an ozone depletion potential rating of zero and will break down in the atmosphere in only five days thus providing an extremely low global warming potential.
