Extinguishing your risk
Gas Suppression Systems
Fire suppression systems extinguish electrical fires by releasing a concentration of gas within a particular room, removing the oxygen and extinguishing the fire.
Most commonly found in server rooms, computer suites and communication rooms a Gas Suppression system protects the integral functions of your business.
We install, maintain and service all types of fire suppression systems:
FM200®: A colourless gas, virtually odourless and non-conductive. It extinguishes fire mainly through physical means.
INERT IG-55: A blend of Argon and Nitrogen which is found naturally in the atmosphere. It does not contribute to global warming and does not harm the ozone layer. It is highly recommended for the protection of electrical and electronic materials.
CO²: Characterised by its rapid and efficient penetration in the area to be protected, it does not generate residue or decompose products.
Water Mist: Some systems use water mist as part of the new generation of clean extinguishing agents.
Areas protected by fire suppression systems should, upon commissioning and regularly throughout the system life cycle, be tested for air tightness as air-leakage will result in the concentration of the fire suppressant agent falling too quickly and therefore not enabling the efficient extinguishing of the fire. These annual checks are known as Room Integrity Tests.
Kitchen Suppression Systems
Commercial Kitchens utilise high temperature cooking oils, slow cooking appliances and deep-fat fryers all of which represent a difficult and unique challenge to maintaining a safe working environment and compliance to Health and Safety legislation.
Kitchen suppression systems are fixed extinguishing systems designed to quickly detect and suppress kitchen fires using advanced extinguishing agents specifically designed to effectively combat kitchen fires and limit damage so that the operation of the kitchen can be quickly reinstated once the fire has been safely extinguished.
We design, install, commission and maintain kitchen suppression systems in a large number of commercial kitchens throughout the UK.
Utilising our certified R102 Ansul Agent partner, we recognise Ansul kitchen suppression systems as the worldwide number 1 protector of today’s commercial kitchens.
The application of Ansul fire suppression systems can ensure a far safer working environment for kitchen staff and can significantly reduce the insurance costs of industrial and commercial kitchens through the automatic detection and extinguishing of canopy and range fires.
To ensure system functionality and compliance to British and European Standards, Biannual maintenance visits are required.
