Types of Fire Suppression Systems
Clean Agent Suppression System
Clean Agent systems utilize gases that are safe for humans and the environment. These systems are ideal for all occupied spaces that hold valuables.
Sustainable HFC alternative fire suppression fluid that works quickly, cleanly, and efficiently to help stop a fire before it starts. An environmentally acceptable, people compatible, clean agent for vital facilities with a wide range of applications.
Developed as a Halon replacement, FM-200® for clean agent fire protection where water is not an option. Suppresses fires quickly, reduces damage, and saves on floor space. Leaves no residue and doesn’t require costly cleanup.
Inert gas suppression system that rapidly extinguishes fire while providing a safe environment for people by decreasing cardiac distress and maintaining mental performance in low oxygen levels. Zero Ozone Depletion Potential and Zero Global Warming Potential.
FireTrace Systems provide cost-effective, stand-alone, automatic fire suppression for your critical production equipment, electrical enclosures, and various micro-equipment enclosures.
Foam systems rapidly secure flammable liquid fires. When protection is needed in flammable aircraft storage and process areas, foam systems offer many advantages over conventional water-based systems.
CO2 Suppression System
The original “clean” agent, carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind any agent residue to damage sensitive equipment. Because there is no agent to clean up, you’re back in business faster. High pressure and low-pressure CO2 systems can be customized to protect anything from large rooms to a specific piece of equipment with systems that range in size from 50 pounds to 60 tons. To provide the most economical system arrangement without sacrificing performance, we offer both high and low-pressure systems, from Kidde Fire Systems and Ansul.
STAT-X Aerosol Suppression System
Aerosol fire suppressant is a potassium-based aerosol that suppresses fire by chemically interfering with the free radicals of flame. These systems are great for protecting small enclosures.
Impact Fire offers a full line of special hazard fire protection products, including fire suppression/detection systems, extinguishing agents, and portable fire extinguishers
