There’s a misconception that water is the best fire suppression solution. Yes, water can douse a fire but fire can be created in a variety of ways and not all those causes can be handled by water.
In some cases using water to suppress a fire can increase property and fire damage. For example, if a fire was caused by a gas leak, a water suppression system will not be your best option.
Even in situations where water does eliminate a fire, water can cause damage to the contents of a room, including electrical equipment such as computers.
But there is a solution. With clean agent fire suppression systems, such as the FM-200, you can suppress fire without using water. FM-200 is a gaseous agent that can handle classes A(solid), B(liquid), and C fires(gaseous). Best of all FM-200 is a non-toxic agent.
You can use a FM-200 clean agent fire suppression system in these types of scenarios:
-If your office requires a non-toxic fire suppression system you can use the FM-200 clean agent. The health impact of a fire suppression system is always important in areas where crowds are frequent.
-FM-200 is an excellent fire suppression system choice because a gaseous clean agent is able to respond quickly to fires where entry and exit areas could be potentially blocked.
-FM-200 clean agent can be used in offices with plenty of electrical apparatuses that cannot risk being exposed to water. Offices include telecommunication centers, data centers, museums, and vaults. Never again will you be counter-intuitive in protecting your office contents from fire and water damage.
-Use FM-200 in environmentally friendly office areas.The clean agent doesn’t contain ozone-damaging gases such as Halon.
Your clean agent can be stored in hand held fire extinguishers or stored in a network of pipes that will be triggered by the detection of smoke.
