What is automatic fire detection and suppression?

Automatic fire suppression systems control and extinguish fires without human intervention. We utilize proprietary red Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT) as a linear heat and flame detector. When a fire starts, the portion of the tube nearest the point where the most heat is detected will rupture. This will activate the system to release the agent to suppress the fire.

What are clean agents and are they safe?

Clean agents are waterless and deploy immediately without leaving behind oily residue or water that can damage critical assets and machinery. Clean agents are environmentally friendly and because they leave no residue, your downtime is minimal.

When should clean agents be used?

Clean agents are ideal for extinguishing fires in small spaces such as cabinets or the inside of equipment as well as for large-scale applications such as data centers. Clean agents do not leave behind a residue which eliminates the need for time consuming clean up.

What are the various types of fire?

There are four classes of fires.

CLASS A - Ordinary combustibles such as wood, cloth, and paper.
CLASS B - Flammable liquids such as gasoline, oil, and oil-based paint.
CLASS C - Energized electrical equipment, including wiring, fuse boxes, circuit breakers, machinery, and appliances.
CLASS D - Combustible metals such as magnesium or sodium.

How much does an automatic fire detection and suppression cost?

How much does it cost to recharge my system?

The cost to recharge a suppression system is dependent on several factors including, but not limited to, type of agent, total pounds of agent required, number and size of cylinders, and cylinder location. Locate a distributor near you for cost information.
