A fire suppression system can improve overall facility safety by stopping fires before they spread. They are often tied into fire detection and fire detection systems and are configured to activate automatically if conditions indicating a fire are detected. More and more companies are upgrading their fire suppression and prevention systems to use clean agent fire suppression. A clean agent is electrically nonconductive and people safe gaseous fire extinguishing that does not leave a residue when discharged. Thus, clean agents are the ideal choice as office fire prevention systems for data storage rooms, IT equipment, artwork, electronics, mission critical processes and much more.

  • Clean agents inhibit the chain reaction that unfolds between heat, oxygen and a fuel source that ignites a potentially all-consuming blaze. Some examples of clean agents are FM-200 and Novec 1230. 
  • Clean agent fire suppressants are safe to use when people are present. Knowing these suppressants are people safe, you can orderly evacuate the area and allow the fire department to investigate and then make the decision to let you go back to work.
  • Clean agent fire suppression is very effective, designed to control and extinguish a blaze within the affected process before it spreads to other parts of your office, warehouse or commercial property.

And, if your space is limited or if your company contains many restricted areas or rooms, this type of system is especially ideal. You can still get the best fire protection systems on the market without sacrificing too much space.

There are so many great reasons to choose clean agent fire suppression for your Akron business. And, summer is a great time to consider the safety of your property.
