Clean Agent Systems

FM200 Systems

FM200 engineered fire suppression systems are ideal to help protect computers, computer related devices, data and severs. These types of equipment would be damaged or destroyed by a water-based suppression system. Using an FM200 system the equipment is better protected. FM200 systems deploy a specialized extinguishing agent that protects valuable electronics, computers, sensitive equipment and data.

While FM200 is the best solution in many instances, sometimes other “clean agents” are better suited where water or other agents can cause damage.

CO2 & Sapphire Systems

With our expertise, we can identify the best clean agent system for your specific fire protection and risk needs. We provide C02 and Sapphire engineered fire suppression systems. These systems, like FM200, leave sensitive equipment free of contamination and fire damage. Let us but of skill and experience to work for you and engineer the best clean agent system for your facility or structure.

Novec 1230 Systems

If using an environmentally friendly suppression agent is crucial for your operations or corporate culture, we offer 3M’s Novec 1230. Novac 1230 is unique among suppression agents in that it provides the largest margin of safety relative to all other clean agents. Like other clean agents, Novec 1230 is a clean fire extinguishing agent, that leaves valuable equipment and sensitive materials operational and clean. Moreover, Novec 1230, when used has a global warming impact of 1 – out of a possible 100. No other clean agent is that environmentally friendly and helps reduce greenhouse emissions.

Inergen Systems

In a clean, non-conductive and natural fire suppression agent that will not damage valuable assets or people. As you have read, there isn’t a clean agent for every situation or fire risk. Inergen is another clean agent, but it has some unique characteristic. Inergen, unlike many other clean agents, is safe for humans to breath because it is nontoxic and doesn’t produce corrosive decomposition products. Finally, because of its composition, it is very environmentally friendly since it “poses no ozone depletion or global warming potential and is warranted to comply with future environmental standards.”
