Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
During any fire event, a facility is at risk of damage caused by the fire itself, smoke or water from a fire sprinkler system protecting the space. To keep buildings and their occupants safe, facilities teams count on smoke alarms, wet systems and other fire protection services. In certain buildings however, often mission critical areas requiring round-the-clock access and protection, even minimal downtime or damage can produce costly and catastrophic results.
Clean agent fire suppression systems, commonly known as special hazards, utilize early warning technology and non-water based substances to detect and extinguish fires. When released, clean agents are non-toxic, electrically non-conductive, leave no residue and are completely safe for interaction with people and equipment. The end result is a fully-controlled and extinguished fire that was detected before people or areas are harmed.
