From humble beginnings as glass globes full of water that would break when hot to high-tech sprinkler systems, fire extinguishing tech has come a long way. Patrons and visitors to your business or facility are being kept more and more safe due to advancements in fire suppression systems.
According to sciencedirect.com, “the objectives of fire suppression systems are to provide cooling, control the fire (i.e., prevent it from spreading), and provide extinguishment of the fire incident.” This can be done a number of ways: through dry chemicals, foam suppressants, or other systems. It is important, however, that you know the type of fire you are most likely to deal with or you may end up causing more harm than good.
The main types of fire protection systems are clean agent fire suppression systems, carbon dioxide fire suppression systems, restaurant fire suppression systems, and industrial fire suppression systems. Technicians in this field are trained to survey your area and implement the plan that works best for your building. These technicians can also perform maintenance to the systems to make sure they are still up to date and functioning properly.
Often, a fire suppression system has components built in to detect fires in its beginning stages. Many of these systems will then release the suppression agents automatically to extinguish the fire. Other systems, however, have a manual release. With the help of a fire suppression technician, your business can be prepared with the proper system to protect against special hazards.
