FirePro Systems Used
PGS -15 storehouses traditionally used foam systems for fire protection, however, as these systems had several operational and maintenance challenges, the search for a viable alternative was initiated. The characteristics displayed by FirePro technology’s systems are in full compliance to the PGS-15 standards. Issues such the suitability to explosive environments, hugely effective fire extinguishing capability, easy maintenance and modularity were decisive factors in applying this technology for the needs faced in this particularly demanding industry and application.
