At Fireline, we offer a number of different special hazard fire and suppression systems to keep our commercial clients safe and protected. However, for some of our clients, a special hazard system can seem unnecessary. In order to determine a need for a system, there must first be an understanding of what is considered a special hazard.
What is a Special Hazard?
Some ways to define a special hazard include:
- An area that contains irreplaceable or unique items like an archive, museum, or gallery
- An area that contains processes or equipment of high value
- An area that produces a revenue or function that exceeds the value of the equipment itself
A special hazard can be found in a number of different places and can be just about anything. The problem with a special hazard is the fact that typical fire protection strategies, like sprinkler systems, could cause serious damage to the items or functions. For example, a sprinkler system would destroy one of a kind paintings found in an art museum. Because of this, the need for a special hazard fire system grew.
What are Special Hazard Fire Systems?
- A system designed to limit the amount of loss to revenue, information, and assets in a location
- A system designed to protect not only items but people
- A system designed to detect an incipient heat condition or fire
- A system designed to mitigate interruption in business
- A system requiring a certain set of skilled and qualified contractors to help with design, installation, and maintenance
Agents that are commonly used in these fire systems include:
- Dry chemical
- Clean agents
- Hybrid systems
- Inert gases
