Fire Suppression Systems
Fire Protection For Highly Hazardous Material
Fire suppression systems use water, inert gasses, clean agents, dry chemicals, or foam to put out fires very quickly and efficiently. Inert gas or clean agent fire suppression systems can be used when water is not a viable use to mitigate the fire danger whether it be an electrical or high hazard or highly valuable assets. Fire suppression systems can be installed in both new construction and also retrofitted into existing buildings for companies that are purchasing a facility versus building a new one.
Clean Agent Systems
Depending on the hazard or asset you are protecting, the type of fire suppression system you will need can vary. Museums, data centers, telecom closets, electrical rooms, historical buildings, art galleries, and other rooms with sensitive materials tend to use clean agent systems to protect the assets inside. Clean agents are specialty chemicals that are nonconductive and leave no residue after discharge. This eliminates the need for clean up and greatly reduces downtime. Gas turbines, power plants, hydraulic rooms, printing presses, and the like tend to use CO2 or water mist systems for fire protection. Small paint booths, mining equipment, and flammable material loading docks typically use dry chemical fire protection systems. And water mist fire protection systems are typically used where possible because they are environmentally friendly and cause no threat to personnel.
