Fire extinguishers

Having worked in such conditions, the alternative of sprinkler is he
CO2. The room is automatically injected by large quantities of CO2.

The only bad restriction of such equipment is the potential danger
of working in such preconditioned room. The alarm must be really
dissuasive and delayed to let peoples get out of the room in all
cases! Preliminary and regular training is a must.

But on the conservation view point, it is just excellent and should
always be recommended.
