Pre-Engineered Suppression Systems
for Special Hazards
Serving Portland OR | Beaverton OR | Vancouver WA | Longview WA
While the risk of fire is an everyday hazard of life, there are special locations and circumstances in which the risk is heightened. The danger can stem from a common use of combustible chemicals or from a work environment that uses heat and oil or oil-based substances on a regular basis.
While fire extinguishers on the site can certainly help to quench the blaze, companies are increasingly turning to the installation of suppression systems to put out the fire and minimize property damage and injuries with minimal downtime.
These suppression systems are designed to react instantly when a fire occurs. In the time it may take to locate and activate a fire extinguisher, a suppression system can eliminate the fire completely.
Where are pre-engineered suppression systems used?
Pre-engineered suppression systems are designed for fire types rather than for specific companies. This means that a restaurant at greater risk for a kitchen fire may choose a different type of pre-engineered system than that of a company that manufactures commercial vehicles with electrical systems that could ignite.
The restaurant may opt for a wet chemical suppression system, which is released in a blanketing action from the hood’s ventilation system to immediately quell an oil-based fire, while the car manufacturer may choose a dry chemical suppression system that, unlike water-based agents, is safe for use on electrical fires.
