This system involves the use of Inert gases and other chemical agents that extinguish fire by reducing the amount of Oxygen in a place where fire would have break out and also sustaining present life. We are a leading inert and chemical gaseous fire suppression systems provider whose “track record” for providing “long term sustainable” gaseous fire suppression systems remains unbeatable and beyond reproach.
We have achieved this recognition by ensuring that the “working life” of all the different types of gaseous fire suppression systems that we provide has been safeguarded against replacement from potential future changes in Health & Safety and Environmental Legislation.
FM200 Fire Suppression is a suitable agent for normally occupied spaces. FM200 fire suppression systems are commonly used in: DATA Centres, Comms Rooms, Telecommunication facilities, UPS Rooms, Medical facilities.
What is FM200 Fire Suppression?
FM200 fire suppression is also known as HFC227ea. FM200 is a waterless fire protection system, it is discharged into the risk within 10 seconds and suppresses the fire immediately.
How safe is FM200?
FM200 fire suppression is found as an active compound as a propellant in medical inhalers. This is goes without saying that FM200 gas is extremely safe for occupied spaces with the correct fire suppression design.
How does FM200 work?
There is a common misconception that FM200 gas reduces oxygen this is not true! FM200 is a synthetic/chemical fire suppression gas and extinguishes a fire by removing the free radicals or heat elements from the fire triangle. (Oxygen, Heat and Fuel).
1. The main advantage of FM200 fire suppression, is the small amount of agent required to suppress a fire. This means fewer cylinders, therefore less wasted space for storage of FM200 cylinders. FM200 systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. FM200 extinguishes the fire quickly, which means less damage, lower repair costs. Like any other fire suppression system, FM200 systems are designed with an extra margin of safety for people. Refilling FM200 is simple and cost effective, therefore, it also means less downtime and disruption to your business.
2. FM200 is classed as a clean agent which means that it is safe to use within occupied spaces. The safety of FM200 fire suppression environments is proven in over a decade of real-world experience and validated by extensive scientific studies. FM200 systems take up less storage space than most other fire suppressants.
3. In addition to the fire protection benefits of using FM200, the environment will benefit as well. FM200 fire suppressant does not deplete stratospheric ozone, and has minimal impact on the environment relative to the impact a catastrophic fire would have. FM200 fire suppression is a solution that is already working in more than 100 thousand applications, in more than 70 nations around the world. How can Fire Suppression Limited help you?
