About FM-200 Fire Suppression System
In this digital age of business, you simply can't afford a major interruption to your operation. A fire can be devastating to your firm's reputation and financial future. How quickly you recover can depend on choosing the best fire protection agent.
FM-200 fire suppression systems work hand-in-hand with state-of-the-art detection to identify and extinguish a fire hazard, long before substantial fire damage can occur. And FM-200 does not leave harmful or messy residues which could damage delicate electronic and data processing equipment.
FM-200 reacts quickly at low concentrations to eliminate a fire. In normally occupied areas, people can breathe FM-200 at extinguishing concentrations without fear.
Nothing is More Effective
No other gaseous extinguishant has been more rigorously tested and proven. The top independent listing and approval laboratories have found FM-200 to be an effective, rapid-acting fire suppression agent.
You can't buy better protection for your people, equipment, or business.
FM-200 is the Global Choice
The leading manufacturers of fire extinguishing equipment choose FM-200 for their systems. Tens of thousands of FM-200 systems are protecting critical facilities worldwide.
FM-200 is the most globally accepted gaseous fire extinguishing agent available today.
Fire Fighters Equipment Company employs some of the most well trained and experienced FM-200 solution providers in the area. Call us today to find out more about FM-200.
Dispel the Myths about Halon and Other Clean Agents
Halons are used in a wide range of fire protection applications because they combine five characteristics.
- They are highly effective against solid, liquid/gaseous, and electrical fires (referred to as Class A, B, and C, fires respectively).
- They are clean agents; this is, they dissipate rapidly, leaving no residue and thereby avoiding secondary damage to the property they are protecting.
- Halons do not conduct electricity and can be used in areas containing live electrical equipment.
- Halons are gaseous substances that can penetrate in and around physical objects to extinguish fires in otherwise inaccessible areas.
- Halons are generally safe for limited human exposure when used with proper exposure controls.
Despite these advantages, halons are among the most ozone-depleting chemicals in use today. Halon 1301 has an estimated ODP of 10; Halon 1211 has an estimated ODP of 3. Thus, while total halon production comprised just 2% of the total production of class I substances since 1986, halons represented 23% of the total estimated ozone depletion potential of CFC's and halons combined.
The greatest releases of halon into the atmosphere occur not in extinguishing fires, but during testing and training, service and repair, and accidental discharges. Data generated as part of the Montreal Protocol's technology assessment indicate that only 15% of annual halon 1211 emissions and 18% of halon 1301 emissions occur as a result of use to extinguish actual fires. These figures indicate that significant gains can be made by protecting the ozone layer by limiting unnecessary discharges through better detection and dispensing systems for halon and halon alternatives.
Additional information on specific halon uses can be found in the Montreal Protocol 1991 Assessment or in other background information in the public domain.
