Types of Fire Suppression Systems

Firetrace offers two distinct fire suppression product lines, each suitable for very different applications. Our flagship product line is the pre-engineered fire suppression system, a passive automatic fire suppression system. In addition, we provide clean agent engineered systems, also known as total flooding systems.

Pre-Engineered Systems

Two Self-Contained Systems for Ultimate Protection

Firetrace pre-engineered fire suppression systems are the industry standard for special hazard fire protection. Our systems use heat and flame sensitive pneumatic tubing to detect fires. Each system may be arranged as either “direct release” or “indirect release,“ depending on the potential fire hazard.


Direct Release Systems

Our direct release systems utilize Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT) as a detection device and for suppressant delivery.

Indirect Release Systems

Our indirect release systems use pneumatic tubing for detection, but they discharge the suppressant through connected pipes and nozzles.

High-Pressure Systems

Our high-pressure systems utilize CO2 (carbon dioxide) to suppress fires. CO2 is a colorless, odorless gas that is highly effective at suppressing a wide variety of fires.

Engineered Systems

Created specifically for larger spaces our engineered systems protect electronic equipment by suppressing fire without compromising the equipment or disrupting operations.

Suppression Agents

Firetrace offers a range of different agents for use with our fire suppression system hardware, including dry chemical, clean agents, and carbon dioxide (CO2). A variety of agents are recommended for different applications or hazards.

Our Core Technology

Firetrace Detection Tubing

The red Firetrace Detection Tubing (FDT) is at the heart of the system. By routing the tubing throughout a special hazard, the system can detect a fire at its source. Under normal circumstances, the FDT detects a fire 10 times faster than traditional methods. Firetrace direct release and indirect release systems do not require electricity to operate and accurately detect fires even in the presence of dust, particulates, and other environmental challenges.

Fire Suppression Chemicals

Firetrace offers a range of suppression chemicals (agents), and our experts can identify the best agent for your application. We have strong partnerships with clean agent manufacturers, allowing us to offer both Chemours FM-200® or 3M Novec 1230® clean agents. We also offer ABC dry chemical, BC dry chemical, and carbon dioxide suppression systems.
