Carbon dioxide or CO2 is a colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive gas...that's highly efficient as a fire suppression agent. Carbon Dioxide fire protection systems use intelligent, reliable and fast-acting control panels to quickly sense a fire before it can cause damage to property. Carbon dioxide gas has a high rate of expansion, which allows CO2 fire protection system to work fast.
When applied to a fire, CO2 provides a heavy blanket of gas that reduces the oxygen level to a point where combustion cannot occur. Since carbon dioxide is a gas, there is no clean-up associated with CO2 fire suppression system discharge...that's minimal interruption to your business! In fact, the cost of clean-up and peripheral damage associated with water sprinkler systems, foam systems, and dry chemical agents can exceed the costs associated with the actual fire damage. With Carbon Dioxide system, clean up costs and downtime associated with a CO2 discharge are negligible.
CO2 fire suppression system is extremely versatile, effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials and approved for Class A, B, and C hazards.
Carbon Dioxide fire protection systems are available for use in total flooding or local fire protection applications - making it an effective fire protection system for a wide variety of hazards.
