In order to provide accurate and fast fire protection, we use a number of different inert gases, that are suitable for a variety of different situations and applications , like CO2, Argonite, FM-200 and Novec .
Once a fire has been detected by one of our fire alarm systems, our inert gas extinguishing system will be triggered. Releasing gas into the required room, our equipment will reduce oxygen percentages to those lower than the level needed for combustion.
CO2 and Argonite (a gaseous mix of nitrogen and argon) work by reducing the levels of oxygen in the room to put out a fire while retaining enough oxygen to support human life.
FM-200 works slightly differently. It causes a chemical reaction in the air, which slows down the process of oxidization enough to extinguish a fire before it can really begin.
What Type of System do I Need?
As each type of fire extinguishing agent carries its own advantages and disadvantages, the choice is based on a number of factors, such as where it will be sited; what other gases, chemicals and materials it will be surrounded by; how much storage space there is; and the health and safety of those that will be working in areas protected by the gas.
Our specialized and dedicated Mechanical and Electrical Engineers, specialized in fire safety systems, can easily and quickly connect inert gas suppression systems to a wider fire detection and alarm system. They can be installed with most fire extinguishers when they are EN12094 certified, but require separate maintenance to ensure proper operation in the event of fire.
We undertake without any obligation and without cost the autopsy, the study and design of such a system and the preparation of an offer for the customer by an engineer of our company. The installation and maintenance of these systems is performed by Mechanical and Electrical Engineers available to our company, as defined by European and Greek legislation.
