The goal is to protect assets and critical components important to the safety of people and the facility. Fire suppression systems are used in areas that are volatile, critical or contain sensitive equipment where non-fire damage from water is as detrimental to the equipment or materials as fire.
A variety of suppression system agents are available to suit any application: powder, foam, aerosol, or water based systems may be appropriate for some applications in others inert and halon-based gases for total flooding are used.
Industrial and Commercial Risks come in all shapes and sizes and the selection of the most appropriate system for any specific application is a complex decision. The right solution will provide the most appropriate protection as well as the most appropriate cost implications.
