Yet, due to the nature of the work in many factories these collection units can be very susceptible to fire.
Firetrace's unique systems work effectively in these enclosed environments thanks to the placement of the proprietary red Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT).

Firetrace systems can use a variety of suppression agents including:
