Fire Supression Project in Education Collections

Posted 8/23/2011 12:08 AM by Richard Busch | Comments

Most of August has been preparing for the installation of a new fire suppression system in the Education Collections Storage room.  The new system is a standard VESDA pre-action system that received funding from the 2007 Better Denver Campaign.  As part of this project, we had some blue insulating foam that apparently could off-gas nasty stuff if it were to burn - so, the Fire Marshall wanted it removed and replaced.  In order to do this, we had to move most of our collection out of our main storage area since the Steel Fixture Gl Cases were backed up onto the foam.  In these pictures, the foam has been removed, but you can see it in the opening slide show on the Education Collections main page.  In the coming weeks, I will be posting a time-lapse we did of the move, it should be fun to watch.

Some of you had contacted us with requests from the collection.  This is why we have been unable to accommodate those at this time.  We should be back and up and operating by the middle of September.  Thank you for your patience.
