Choosing the Right Suppression System

Protecting your property calls for different suppression systems based on the special hazards inside and the use of your facilities. Whether you are protecting historical artifacts in a museum or running a power plant, the detection of a fire and the fast-acting response of a system is important to help limit damage to your assets, people and building. Based on your facility’s needs we can help you design, install, test, inspect and service a special hazard fire protection system.

Common Special Hazards Fire Protection Systems:

  • Deluge Systems: A water-based sprinkler system that has open nozzles to quickly release a large douse of water over a wide area. This system is used in high hazard areas such as chemical storage facilities and power plants.
  • High Expansion Foam Systems: This suppression system releases a blanket of foam to smother and suppress a fire. High Expansion foam is used in aircraft hangers and high combustible storage.
  • CO2 Systems: A fast acting fire suppression system that uses CO2 to suppress a fire. This system leaves no residue, requires no clean-up, is non-conducive and is used commonly for electronic operations and power generation.
  • Clean Agent Systems: Clean Agents are gaseous fire suppressants that are electrically non-conducive, leave no residue behind, are safe for humans, and environmentally friendly. Clean agent systems are ideal for environments with sensitive or delicate equipment.
  • Water Mist Systems: This fire protection system uses very fine water droplets or mist to put out a fire. Water mist systems use less water and create less water damage than traditional sprinkler systems. They are used in mining facilities, museums and various industrial plants.
