Clean Agent Fire Extinguishers
For years, Halon 1211 fire extinguishers were used in buildings housing sensitive processes, data, and equipment – you may even still have a Halon fire extinguisher in your building. Unfortunately, Halon has been found to damage the ozone layer, and as of 1994 new production of Halon has been outlawed. While this is good news for the environment, it’s bad news for companies who need fire protection but can’t afford to rely on fire extinguishers that use water or corrosive chemicals! Fortunately, a variety of clean agent fire extinguishers have been introduced to fill the void left by the halted production of Halon.

Like CO2, clean agent fire extinguishers store their extinguishing agent as a pressurized liquid, which quickly evaporates when it hits the air. Clean agent extinguishers are effective on Class A, B, and C fires, and are electrically nonconductive. Clean agent extinguishers put out a fire by cooling and smothering it (without thermal shock to delicate electronic equipment). These extinguishers are EPA-approved and have low global warming (or ozone depletion) potential. Some common places where clean agent fire extinguishers are used include:
- Computer rooms
- Telecomm facilities
- Clean rooms
- Data storage areas
- Irreplaceable document and art storage rooms
- Offices (for protection of sensitive electronic equipment)
- Boats and vehicles
