Delta Fire Systems, Inc. has experience installing and maintaining fire suppression systems, and all of our service personnel are fully trained in all mechanical aspects of these systems.
Fire suppression systems are non-water based fire extinguisher systems, and are often used in commercial or industrial buildings to better protect the people and gear inside it, and reduce cleanup costs and downtime after an incident.
Depending on the application, any special hazards and the type of assets, we would recommend different types of suppression systems. The most common suppression systems we have installed and worked with are:
FM-200 systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, which stops ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they can cause significant damage.
Commercial and industrial facilities can increase on-site safety with CO2 fire suppression systems. This type of systems provides extra fire protection and safety for potential hazards, as they discharge a fire retardant that doesn’t conduct electricity or damage property.
Novec 1230, fluid is a low global warming potential Halon replacement for use as a gaseous fire suppression agent. Novec 1230 is manufactured by 3M. It is generally used in situations where water from a fire sprinkler would damage expensive equipment or where water-based fire protection is impractical, such as museums, banks, clean rooms and hospitals.
3M Novec 1230 fluid does not deplete ozone and has a global warming potential of 1 over 80 years, equivalent to that of carbon dioxide.
FE-13TM is the preferred Halon replacement (Halon 1301) in total flooding and inerting applications where its low toxicity provides for improved safety margins, the protected spaces are large, the cylinder storage area is remote from the protected space, or where the temperatures are likely to go below 0°C (32°F). Of the clean agents available, FE-13TM has the lowest toxicity and is the safest for protecting areas where people are present. FE-13TM provides the ultimate in human safety while protecting high-value assets and business continuity with a clean agent.
Foam suppression systems are especially useful for buildings that handle anything flammable. The makeup of the foam is water, air and foam concentrate. Together, the mixture creates a blanket and extinguishes the flames by cooling and coating the blaze, eventually smothering the fire.
