Fire Suppression System

A fire suppression system is any product designed to stop a fire from spreading. It gets the name suppression system as it aims to hold back the fire and the damage it may cause. Preventing the fire from spreading mitigates losses and allows time for emergency personnel to respond. One example of a fire suppression system is a fire sprinkler system. Clean agent and dry chemical systems, like those offered by Firetrace also qualify as fire suppression systems.

While sprinkler systems are the most common type of fire suppression system, some applications require special hazard fire suppression systems that do not use water. These systems are unique in that they can deal with hazards where water could actually do more harm than good. Within fire science, there are several classes of fires: class A, B, C, D, and K. The fuel of the fire will dictate what can put it out. Class A fires, for example, involve wood, and a sprinkler system would work well. A Class C fire, on the other hand, is an electrical fire and that may get worse by trying to suppress it with water. In summary, the specific environment will determine which system will work best.

Advantages of Fire Suppression System

  • Waterless Protection – The clean agent floods the room as a harmless gas to employees and equipment. It won’t damage electronics, files or other valuables that aren’t replaceable.
  • Safety – It is non-toxic and non-corrosive and can be installed for occupied or unoccupied rooms. It’s quick action and people-safe attributes protect your employees.
  • Clean-up – It doesn’t leave a residue, so there is little to no clean up needed.
  • Fast Acting Protection – The system responds within seconds to extinguish the fire. The fire is put out quickly which minimizes the amount of soot and smoke in the room.
  • Fire Damage Area Concentrated – Since the clean agent system responds so quickly, fire damage is usually limited to the immediate area.
  • Environmentally Friendly – It is safe for the environment and has zero o-zone depletion potential.
  • Minimized Downtime – It won’t take long to get your business back into action. Since the fire should have been detected and extinguished within seconds, there is no water or residue damage to clean up.  The fire damage should be confined to a small area.

How Do Fire Suppression System?

If you manage a property or own a business, you probably have heard about the importance of fire protection systems, but do you know the difference between a sprinkler system and a suppression system? Do you know how fire suppression systems work or how to choose the right fire protection system for your establishment? It is imperative that you understand what fire suppression systems are and which work best in different scenarios. The wrong fire suppression system has the potential to cause more harm than an actual fire.

A fire suppression system is an engineered group of units that are built to extinguish fires through the application of a substance. Most commonly, a fire suppression system has built-in components that detect fires at the beginning stages through heat, smoke, and other warning signals. These are attached to an alarm system that will alert you when the fire has been detected and initiate steps for action to further suppress the fire. The majority of fire suppression systems will automatically release the application of an external substance to extinguish the fire after the detection and/or alert. However, some fire suppression systems have a manual application release.
