When you specify a fire protection system, your choices can determine whether a person, valuable asset or even an entire business survives a fire. An effective waterless fire suppression system supports business continuity with minimal downtime. Using water-based fire suppression, on the other hand, can damage electronics and result in extensive remediation and possibly the permanent loss of data or goods.
Not all clean agent fire suppression systems are the same, however. High GWP hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) like FM-200® and ECARO-25® are targeted for production phase-down under the Montreal Protocol. Your choice of a gaseous fire suppression clean agent can affect the world.
