Putting fire protection where it counts

19” Rack Mount Fire Protection Solutions

Redetec is the leading rack mount fire protection solution in the global market today. The Redetec product protects computer racks and critical equipment from the risk of fire and subsequent downtime.

Designed and manufactured by fire & security professionals in UK.


The traditional method of protecting IT and electronic equipment from fire is to completely flood the communications room with a gaseous fire extinguishing agent. While adequate in many cases, there are instances where faster, more responsive fire detection is necessary to secure the company's high-value and mission-critical assets. Companies also prefer to use extinguishing gas with greater caution and in smaller quantities, demonstrating a more responsible environmental strategy while also reducing project costs.

Redetec provides fire detection and extinguishant release within the protected enclosure, where a fire can be detected early and where fire extinguishants can be deployed directly.



Point Type
Redetec has point type detectors for static and low airflows. Accurate and reliable, these smoke detectors are perfect for the majority of Redetec applications.

Designed for Redetec in high airflow computer server rack applications. Higher sensitivity smoke detection for earlier detection of fire. Well proven, extensively specified and extremely reliable.

  • Compact design, 2U x 19″ chassis mounting

  • Local/remote audio/visual condition monitoring & control

  • Monitored alarm/fault circuits

  • Visual alarm & fault status indications

  • Point-type or air sampling smoke detection

  • Single or coincident alarm

  • Choice of gaseous extinguishing agents

  • Selectable gas release delay

  • Up to 12 hour battery back-up

  • Fan/power shutdown control

  • IT/BMS data output

  • EMC tested/CE mark tested


HFC227ea (FM200)
A proven and reliable chemical fire extinguishing gas with zero ozone depletion characteristics.

HFC227ea has a long and illustrious pedigree in providing safe, effective & reliable fire protection for computer room applications, without causing damage to sensitive electronic equipment. Redetec has adapted the room protection properties of HFC227ea into Redetec mounted extinguishant bottles, each capable of protecting 1.5m3 rack enclosure space. Up to two HFC227ea bottles can be mounted within each Redetec, giving 3.0m3 volume protection. Additional extinguishant protection can be mounted in further enclosures, controlled and initiated via Redetec.

An environmentally friendly extinguishing gas with application characteristics similar to other chemical suppression gases.

Redetec uses FK-5-1-12 as an advanced Halon replacement chemical agent for fire extinguishing. FK-5-1-12 combines low toxicity with high fire extinguishing efficiency. FK-5-1-12 has zero Ozone Depletion Potential together with a global warming potential of 1 on the IPCC scale. This means that has less environmental impact than other chemical extinguishing agents available.

Industries & Applications​

Redetec is a 19″ rack-based fire suppression solution designed for the IT and Telecommunications industries but equally applicable for all other industry sectors. Redetec’s key advantages lie in its ability to deliver fire protection from within equipment racks, where the loss of high value assets and data due to fire is at its greatest.​
