CertaUPS: Why Are UPS Systems So Important?
CertaUPS provide an uninterruptable power supply across a range of verticals. We've put together a couple of floor plans that show why UPS systems are so important and the potential consequences of not having a system to back up your network in case of an emergency.
1 & 8 • Without a power supply, entry doors into a warehouse become a security risk. With a powered security door, visitors and employees scan-in to gain entry, but without any power, doors can either be forced open or can trap people inside.
4 & 9 • Offices house vast amounts of data that can be potentially targeted by 'bad guys'. A loss of power leading to systems not being shut down correctly can leave your company, your customers and your data at risk.
5 • If storage doors lose their powered-access, anyone can gain access to employees' personal belongings and additional stock.
2 • Electrical forklifts are often managed centrally; if they were to lose power, there is a chance that they become safety hazards due to stopping in unsafe positions or holding heavy goods.
3 • Packing areas are full of boxes and without a power supply, employees can be stuck without any light to safely manoeuvre their way out of the building.
6 • The loading area can be dangerous at the best of times, with forklifts, deadlines to get orders out, and a loading bay, with a sudden power outage everything comes to a halt and workload stops.
7 • Conveyor belts become a safety hazard if they're not turned off properly and lose power. Things can break or be ejected off the belt. When restarted items are likely to fall off or be thrown from the belt if systems have not been shut down properly.
10 • In an emergency power outage, the recording of goods leaving the warehouse will be lost and leaves employees operating machinery without any lighting.
5 • In a power outage, tills will not securely lock and there is a risk that company money is not secure.
6 • Without a UPS system in place, store entrances and exits will lose their electric security barriers. They will need to be opened manually to let customers out before being securely but manually locked shut.
7 • ATM's will not work without power, but if a customer is in the middle of a transaction, the store risks being liable for the transaction failing and a customer potentially losing money.
1 • Shop shelving sections offer health and safety issues if a store was to lose power, without light or emergency lighting, it can be hard for people to make their way out safely, without risking items falling onto customers.
2 • Disabled toilets rely on power to alert shop assistants if there is someone inside needing help. Without a UPS system to power the alarm or lights, customers could be stuck inside without employees being aware.
3 & 4 • Fridge and freezer sections of a store have requirements to stay within a certain temperature range, in the instance of a power outage, this temperature range would not be maintained and food will need to be wasted.
2 • In the case of a power outage without a UPS system in place, any customers using a conference room at a hotel could lose their unsaved work, resulting in hotels paying refunds and receiving bad reviews.
7 • If a reception computer loses power, customer details and payment details could be lost or interpreted, as well as leaving reception employees unable to check people into their rooms, resulting in a poor experience.
1, 4, 6 & 9 • Stairways within hotels are often dark and reliant on lighting, without a UPS system, when there is a loss of power, customers and employees could potentially be left in a dark stairway without any emergency lighting to evacuate the building.
3, 5, 8 & 10 • Lifts are a serious safety issue in the event of a power outage. Customers or employees within a lift can be stuck in a lift until power is restored, without any power to use the emergency call button to bring awareness for help.
11 • Kitchens represent a safety risk when there is a sudden loss of power, as hot ovens and stoves can be dangerous when employees are trying to make their way out without any light.
