Benefits of having a gas extinguishing system
Being able to supress a fire as soon as it breaks out is a key aspect to efficient fire protection. Doing this effectively ensures that critical processes within a business or professional operation can be up and running again in the minimum time.
There are a number of different extinguishing systems available for certain situations. For example, a gas extinguishing system would be required if water or foam devices were not suitable for the application.
A gas extinguishing system uses a combination of inert gasses, chemical agents or vaporised liquids to control and extinguish fires. They can be integrated into a building’s fire protection system, providing a wider range of safety options.
Using a gas extinguishing system to supress a fire means that:
- Collateral damage is reduced: These devices are regularly used in data centres and areas containing high value items. This is because they produce less damage and do not leave residue or water behind like a traditional extinguisher, which can harm electrical equipment.
- Safety is increased: They do not conduct electricity and therefore create safer means to extinguish electrical fires. The gases released are also fully tested so that they are safe for the occupied areas they will be released into.
- You get a rapid response to danger: A gas extinguishing system can begin suppressing a fire within seconds, preventing a fire from getting too serious.
