An innovation in waterless fire suppression, when it comes to putting out fires while protecting your equipment, think none other than DuPont™ FM-200®.
FM-200 is the world’s leading fire extinguishing clean agent. It is widely used in protecting some of the world’s most valuable properties and equipment.
Sprinkler systems are great protection methods, but require significant heat for activation, by that time it might be too late to save expensive and valuable contents and equipment. Their main priority is to protect building structure and lives of humans, but create a large downtime and could prove costly. In fact, a large number of businesses that suffer significant fires that delays their business activities never recover.
One of the main advantages of FM-200 is that the system extinguishes fires in less than 10 seconds, which makes it the fastest suppression rate available in the market. This results in sensitive equipment and locations being protected in a split second operation. Not only that, the United States Environmental protection agency (SNAP listing of Halon alternatives) and the UK Halon Alternatives groups have approved the use of FM-200 where human life is present. Unlike CO2 suppression, which is toxic to human exposure for longer periods, FM-200 is people safe which make it the primary suppression agent in hospitals, commercial offices, print houses, computer rooms, data and telecommunication centers, medical and scientific labs thus becoming the market leader in gaseous fire suppression.
ADVANTAGES OF FM-200
- Suppresses most fires in < 10 seconds, allowing equipment to be protected instantly.
- Safe for use with human presence and environmentally friendly.
- Suitable for Class A, B and C Fires.
- Zero Ozone depleting potential.
- Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Factory Mutual (FM) Approvals.
- Electrically non-conductive, safe on electronics and leaves no residue.
- Requires minimal space for cylinder installation and storage than other clean agent gases.
