Fire Suppression is an important part of a building’s safety system. Not only does it protect you from harm in the event of a fire, but it also helps ensure that the structure isn’t damaged by flames. There are many different types of Fire Suppression Systems available today. We’ll take you through each kind so you can decide which one is right for your project needs.
A Pre-Engineered System is a Fire Suppression System that is designed, installed, and commissioned by a professional. Pre-Engineered Systems are the most common type of Fire Suppression Systems in use today. The main benefit of this type of system is that it’s generally easier and safer to install, as you don’t have to worry about finding the right parts and making sure everything fits together. This makes it much easier for them to get certified by local authorities, which makes life much easier when you want to open your new business or office space.
Clean Agent Suppression System
Another type of system is the Clean Agent Suppression System. This system uses a non-toxic, non-flammable substance called a clean agent to reduce the temperature of the fire so that it goes out without damaging equipment. Clean agents are typically halon or nitrogen, but other gasses have been used as well. The clean agent is stored in cylinders mounted on top of a piece of equipment and piped through valves to nozzles and pipes located at strategic points around the area where fires may occur.
Kitchen Fire Suppression System
A Kitchen Fire Suppression System protects your kitchen from the most common types of fires. Kitchen fires are different from other types of fires because they are often caused by grease, oil, or food left on the stovetop. In addition to these causes, a lack of ventilation can also cause a kitchen fire. Kitchen fires are not only dangerous, but they can also cause extensive damage to your home.
Total Flooding Systems
Water is the most common fire suppression agent, primarily because it is easy to use and can be found almost everywhere. Total flooding systems use water as their primary agent to put out fires. This type of system is usually used for large areas (such as warehouses) or areas where there may be little access to the source of the fire.
