The automated compact storage was built at KOMSA in the main logistics building. The small load carrier compact storage system has ten picking modules. The totes are transported to and from the warehouse quickly and fully automatically by robots.
With the robot-supported compact warehouse, KOMSA has invested in the current and future requirements of its trading partners to have goods delivered as quickly as possible after ordering. KOMSA stores the technology of the future here: tablets, smartphones, laptops and routers, etc.
KOMSA is one of the leading European distributors and service providers for modern communication technology with headquarters in Hartmannsdorf, Saxony (Germany). More than 1,000 employees work in Germany and Poland.
To achieve the protection goals defined by the customer and taking into account the specific risks in the KOMSA warehouse, our project team developed an individual, holistic fire protection solution consisting of our OxyReduct® fire prevention technology in combination with TITANUS® aspirating smoke detectors for early fire detection.
The active oxygen reduction system OxyReduct® system prevents fires from spreading, thus eliminating the risk of fire-related material losses or operational interruptions that might threaten a company’s existence. To achieve this, the oxygen content in the area to be protected is permanently lowered below the ignition threshold of the materials predominately housed there and maintained at this level in a controlled manner. This is done through the introduction of nitrogen, which is generated as needed from the air in the room using a physical filtration process.
Since there is still a risk of short circuits on cables and electrical components even in oxygen-reduced environments, the fire protection installed at KOMSA in combination with the highly sensitive TITANUS® aspirating smoke detectors becomes a holistic solution. TITANUS® aspirating smoke detectors detect even the finest pyrolysis particles at a very early stage and thus enable countermeasures to be taken in good time, such as shutting off the power supply.
Fire-related effects like high temperatures and smoke would contaminate and destroy our goods, as would extinguishing water. That would force us to interrupt our operating processes, thus disrupting our delivery capabilities - an absolute no-go for us. So it didn’t take us long to choose WAGNER’s OxyReduct® active fire prevention technology.
Automated compact storage systems require innovative fire protection solutions. Active fire prevention protects operators from the consequences of a fire. This ensures the ability to deliver and operate. Feel free to contact us if you would like us to take on your fire protection challenge.
