Suppression

Suppression systems are configurable to operate as a master or stand-alone system. They can interface with a wide variety of existing security, alarm, and suppression systems at your facilities.

The typical agents that our fire suppression systems utilize are as follows:

Clean Agents

Clean Agent gases have rapidly become the preferred suppressant agent as they extinguisher more quickly than water, permeate obstructed spaces, cause no direct damage to electronic equipment, require no clean-up, and are people-safe.

There are several kinds clean agent gasses available. Please contact us for details.

Carbon Dioxide

CO2 is used in many industrial and commercial applications. It’s an odorless, colorless, electrically non-conductive, environmentally safe gas that provides highly efficient suppression. It simultaneously cools the air and reduces the oxygen level to one that no longer supports combustion. Its high ratio of expansion allows for rapid discharge and thorough saturation, and it also causes no additional post-activation clean-up. The weakness of C02 is that it is not people-safe.

Foam

Fire-fighting foam is a stable dense mass of small, air-filled pockets that has lower density than gasoline, oil,
or water. Foam agents mix with water a solution. The foam solution is then aspirated and released to quickly and stably flow over fuel surfaces. As one would expect, types of foams and their expansion levels are selected based on the space and type of fuel.

Dry Chemical

Dry chemicals are pressurized powders that are released through a fixed nozzle distribution network upon activation. The type of dry chemicals selected are determined by the sources of combustion.

Halon

Halon gases were introduced in the 1960’s and 70’s as fire suppressants that would avoid damaging valuable equipment upon deployment. They were the first “clean agent” suppressant gases manufactured to be people-safe. Unfortunately, due to environmental concerns, Halon manufacturing was ceased in 1994. However, it is still legally recycled and redistributed today for systems which require it.
