Gaseous Fire Suppression or Clean Agent fire suppression are terms used to describe gases used to extinguish fires. Typically gaseous agents work in one of two ways, the first is to inert the atmosphere reducing oxygen levels to a level that will no longer sustain combustion, the second is to react chemically with the fire absorbing heat and causing the chain reaction of combustion to break down.
Clean Agent fire extinguishing systems are typically used to protect three dimensional enclosures containing high value assets that are vital for business continuity, and assets that cannot be protected by traditional sprinkler systems due to the potential for water damage. Typical examples of system applications include telecommunication facilities, clean rooms, data processing centres and museums.
Where easy clean-up, minimal down time, business continuity and people safety are overriding factors, you need to consider clean agent gaseous suppression for your fire protection needs. We will help analyse your facility and operations to determine the most suitable fire suppression agent for your application and your business.

So why clean agent systems?
Would your equipment be damaged or inoperable if impacted by water (fire sprinklers) or dry chemicals?
Is your equipment and service difficult to replace?
Do people occupy your facility?
Can your facility tolerate business interruptions and downtime? Will your customers?
