FM-200 suppression systems provide a safe, effective and clean alternative to Halon systems
10 seconds or less. When it comes to a fire suppressant, using an agent that can be delivered as quickly as possible will lead to less damage of the very property that it is used to protect. FM-200 systems reach
extinguishing levels this quickly and are used to stop ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires (Class A, B and C fires) before any significant damage can occur.
Benefits of FM-200
There are several reasons that FM-200 can be used above other fire suppressants. These include:
- Fast – combined with programmable panels and fast acting smoke detectors which can sense fire in its early stages and release agent.
- Effective – Interrupts the chemical chain reaction, absorbs heat and suppresses the fire.
- Safe – U.S. EPA has approved for use in occupied spaces .
- Clean – an odorless, colorless gas that leaves no residue behind to clean. It is also electrically nonconductive and will not thermally shock delicate circuitry as with some other agents.
- Earth Friendly – not ozone depleting.
When you have a choice between fire suppressant agents, understanding the applications that each of the agents are designed for is important. The professionals at Reliable Fire Equipment Company are able to help you choose the system that is the best fit for your organization.
We recommend using an FM-200 Suppression System when one or more of the following situations exists:
- The value of the area’s contents and/or its importance to business continuity demands that the system be deployed in seconds.
- Water sprinkler systems may damage the area’s contents.
- Employees occupy the protected area.
- Clean up must be eliminated.
- Ease of design and installation is needed.
It may seem like an FM-200 system would have endless applications and uses. Some of the more typical applications include:
- Computer Rooms
- Healthcare Facilities
- Museums or Art Galleries
- Process Control Rooms
- Record Storage Facilities
- Historical Buildings
