Types of Fire Suppression Systems

Different enterprise environments demand different kinds of fire suppression systems. Confires recognizes that many businesses have expensive equipment that needs to remain protected in the event of an emergency and a standard water fire sprinkler system is just not adequate. That is why we offer a variety of fire suppression systems beyond wet sprinkler systems.

Contact Confires today and we will help determine which fire suppression system is best for your New Jersey, Delaware, or Philadelphia business. Fill out the contact form or call 888-228-0917 today.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems

Clean systems use chemicals or gas to deplete fire. Many work to remove fire’s source, oxygen, with a counteracting gas.  While clean agent systems are more sophisticated and require a bit more upkeep than standard water sprinklers, they are a great solution to environments with expensive equipment that cannot risk water damage from a sprinkler system. Here are the clean agent systems Confires can install for your NJ, PA, or DE business:

FM-200 Fire Suppression Systems

FM-200 is a clean agent designed specifically to protect sensitive electronic equipment. FM-200 uses both chemical and physical mechanisms. It discharges gas directly onto the surface of combustible materials. The agent work to absorb heat, effectively lowering the material’s temperature below the ignition point.

FM-200 deploys quickly and cleanly, so you won’t have to deal with oily residue, particulate, or water. FM-200 is one of the fastest suppression systems available; its extinguishing levels are typically reached in 10 seconds or less. This extreme speed results in less damage, lower repair costs, and shorter downtime—not to mention a greater window of safety for any people that may be involved in the fire.

Foam Fire Suppression Systems

Foam suppression systems are best suited to highly flammable environments such as commercial kitchens, airports, and manufacturing plants. Foam works to remove oxygen, the fire’s source, and prevent combustion. Once deployed, the foam expands rapidly, becoming over 1000x its original size in some cases. These high-expansion foams work well in large areas that need to be filled quickly.

Halon Fire Suppression Systems

Halon is an effective but outdated clean agent. It was proved to be ozone-depleting and is no longer legal to install. However, if your business already has a halon fire suppression system in place, it is legal to maintain. We at Confires do recommend replacing your halon system with a more environmentally friendly option, in accordance with the EPA’s recommendation, but we can recharge your system if needed. Due to being outdated, halon systems must follow a strict maintenance code should you choose to keep it in place.
