Active fire prevention to protect millions of books in Jerusalem

For a fire to ignite three elements are needed: heat, combustibles, and an oxidizing agent, usually oxygen. Books are dry materials and cannot ignite themselves. However, being the books stored inside an automated archive, the electrical equipment used e.g., stacker crane, can become such a source of trigger. Therefore, the National Library decided to use ISOLCELL’s oxygen reduction solution to protect over 5 million books stored inside the brand-new automated archive.
