Fire suppression systems

From: Jane Eagan <jane.eagan<-a>

The Queen's College, University Of Oxford, UK, is planning the
construction of a new library extension to house circulating library
material and to provide a secure store and reading room for rare

We are currently considering the benefits of different fire
suppression systems in this new underground space which will include
areas for undergraduate readers with 24/7 access, library and
archive staff, and invigilated readers of special collections

We would be grateful for any comments on water-mist versus gas
suppression systems, particularly in the context of an underground
building and secure store for rare material on compact shelving.
