FIREPRO® and OTHER AEROSOLS
• FirePro is THE ONLY aerosol that is currently approved to AS4487-2013 the current standard.
• FirePro does not use pyrotechnic solid aerosol compound (Class 9.1 miscellaneous, others 4.1 flam. solid). FirePro can be air-freighted at a cheaper cost and the process has less restrictions.(Click for Details)
• FirePro cooling material is natural – alumina based (others use materials which produce harmful toxic chemicals, e. g., NOx, NH3, HCN).
• FirePro in certified to High Voltage environments up to 75,000v, other aerosols have LOWER limits.
• FirePro in passed Explosive Environment tests with UL. Others are restricted from this application.
• FirePro can be used in A Class Fires. Others are restricted from this application.
• FirePro uses robust activator, non pyrotechnic. Competitor pyrotechnic material: instability temperature rise, decay of with time, reduced life time.
• FirePro is labeled with ‘Green Label’; in addition to being environmentally friendly, it is also Eco Friendly.
• Safe for humans, H & S issues, non toxic according to international institutions.
• Life of FirePro solid aerosol compound is certified as 15 years (though can go longer).
• FirePro solid aerosol compound has self activation temperature of 300°C, competition solid compounds – 230°C.
• FirePro is THE ONLY aerosol that is currently approved to AS4487-2013 the current standard.
FIREPRO® v OTHER GASES
 INERT GASES (e. g., Inergen, Argonite, etc)

HALOCARBONS (e.g. FM200, HFC227ea)
• Extinguish fire by removing oxygen. Hazard due to depleted oxygen.
• Area to be protected needs to be pressure relieved or can cause damage.
• Discharge times (1–3 min) compared to FirePro (3–15 sec).
• 1 Unit FirePro = 40 Units Inert Gas (required quantity).
• Extinguish fire by heat absorption and some chemical reaction effect.
• In the progress of being banned, EU Regulation (EC) No. 842/2006.
• At high temperature gives off HF, CO – highly toxic. Can cause frost bite.
• 1 Unit FirePro = 6 – 7.5 Units Halocarbons (required quantity).
 FLUORINATED KETONES (e. g., Novec 1230) CO2
• Liquid which rapidly gasifies.
• Thermal decomposition produces HF & COF2 – toxic.
• 1 Unit FirePro = 6 – 9 Units FK (required quantity).
• Highly pressurised – Not Suitable for A Class Fires.
• Toxic & can cause Frost bite upon contact.
• 1 Unit FirePro = 15.5 Units CO2 (required quantity).
DISADVANTAGES OF INSTALLATION OF GAS V FIREPRO
• Installation of Gaseous Systems in Australia require many Licenses, this is Federal Legislation – costly and time consuming reporting (Click for Details)
• Normally require Fan test to determine pressure capacity of risk
• Activation pressure of Gases normally requires structural preparation of risk to cope with the pressure.
• Activation of gases systems produces a loud noise 90-120db.  Can to create damage to Hard Disks in Data centers.
• Valves, piping, robust supports, brackets.
• Higher maintenance requirements.
• Re-filling requires removal of tanks and specialised filling equipment.
• More space required, and significant weight differences.
• Restrictions in certain applications due to nature of product and impractical installation.
• Longer installation times and higher installation costs.
APPLICATIONS – Local Protection v Total flooding…with FirePro you have a choice
Local Protection withing the Risk eg: Electrical Cabinetes, Raised Floors, Ceiling Spaces…etc
Room Protection eg: Computer Rooms, Archives, Engine Rooms
Transport & Machinery eg: Engine Compartments, Outboard Motors
MOVIES
We recommend that you look at the FirePro movies to see the various applications, the setup of equipment when installed, and also the way that FirePro discharges.
