The Hill Company store and manage all types of digital media. Examples of the types of media we store include; Hard drives, USB memory sticks, DLT tapes, DAT tapes, Cd Rom, DVDs. All of the above are stored under environmental conditions in accordance with the British Standard.
Digital Media is stored within a durasteel vault. Durasteel is a non-combustible composite panel of fibre reinforced cement, mechanically bonded to punched steel sheets on both surfaces. Durasteel combines lightness, strength, impact resistance and durability with exceptional fire resistance.
The Inergen gas system used is a total flooding, clean agent, fire suppression system designed to provide a uniform concentration within the protected area.
The Inergen gas that is contained within the fire suppression system is a fast, effective and safe gas that conforms to the highest environmental and safety standards. Inergen gas is a mixture of Nitrogen, Argon and Carbon Dioxide. It extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen levels within the affected area by below 15%, which is the point at which the majority of combustible material will no longer burn.
The Durasteel vault is fully alarmed and CCTV monitored in order to record individuals who enter and leave. Furthermore, only authorised personnel may enter the vault by access controlled. Digital Media is available 24 hours of the day, 7 days per week and may be retrieved on an emergency 2 hour or standard next day or same day service. All forms of Digital Media are barcoded and tracked and traced via our hand held pocket pcs which capture client's signature on delivery/collection.
Lockable tape transit cases are available to purchase or rent.
