Fire Suppression System

The FM-220 Fire Suppression System is an engineered system utilizing a fixed nozzle agent distribution network. The system is designed and installed in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard 2001, “Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems”

When properly designed, the FM-200 system will suppress surface burning fire in Class A,B and C hazards. 80% of FM-200 fire fighting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical mean (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame).

Complete suppression using FM-200 has the following advantages:

  • The low concentration of FM-200 required means less visual obscurity and minimal risk to personnel
  • The small quantity of agent discharged minimizes over pressurization of the protected area
  • Maximum safety for personnel due to low toxicity
  • Most effective when used with automatic detection to introduce FM-200 rapidly
  • The ability to prevent re-ignition as long as concentration levels are maintained

Typical areas protected by FM-200

  • Bank vaults
  • Libraries
  • Rare Book Stores
  • Electronic Data Processing
  • Telephone Exchange Studios
  • Communication centers
  • Transformers & Switch rooms
  • Control Rooms
  • Test Laboratories
  • Flammable Liquid Storage
