Fire suppression systems are used in areas of high importance that require fast automatic detection and extinguishing. It is essential that potential fires are detected and extinguished instantly and with minimal downtime and damage of the protected systems or areas.
There are many types of gas used to prevent combustion and suppression of fires, but they all fall into two main categories: Oxygen Reduction and Heat Absorption.
When it comes to choosing the correct system there are many considerations, depending on the environment it is to be used in, and the correct extinguishing agent needs to be chosen for the correct application. Consideration needs to be given to the room seal of the protected risk area, storage space for cylinders, installation of distribution pipe work, environmental impact, cost, etc.
In some applications, such as file server rooms and data storage facilities, the type of system used can vary from entire room protection to individual server rack protection. This is often monitored by remote management systems and early warnings for fault and fire alert can be constantly monitored.
At Expert Fire Solutions we can take the heat out of your design requirements by using our own experienced engineers and the very latest technologies to design bespoke protection systems for your application.
CO2: The original clean agent, cost effective for unoccupied spaces, fast, effective and adaptable for a wide range of hazards.
Inert gases: Argonite, Inergen, I-protect are environmentally friendly, containing all natural extinguishants, are human compatible, electrically non-conductive, non-toxic, and non-residual.
Chemical agents: FM200, Novec 1230 and I-protect are classed as clean agents, safe to use in occupied spaces, non-corrosive, electrically non-conductive and little or no effect on the ozone layer. As a smaller quantity of agent is required compared to other clean agents, fewer cylinders are required saving floor spaces.
