FM-200 suppression systems provide a safe, effective and clean alternative to Halon systems10 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 fm200installextinguishing 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.

Why FM-200
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 & Security are able to help you choose the system that is the best fit for your organization.

  • 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.

It may seem like an FM-200 system would have endless applications and uses. Some of the more typical applications include:

  • Computer Rooms
  • Laboratories
  • Healthcare Facilities
  • Museums or Art Galleries
  • Libraries
  • Process Control Rooms
  • Record Storage Facilities
  • Historical Buildings
