fire suppression systems

Fires can cause great damage to both property and residents, if not controlled on time. It can destroy your important information, memorable photos, and keepsakes that can’t be replaced by any other thing. So, you should protect your residential and commercial property from fires by installing fire suppression systems. Most of you won’t be having knowledge about all types of fire suppression systems, so we have decided to share with you a complete guide on these types of fire suppression systems. This guide will help you make the right decision on choosing the best fire suppression system for your home or business. So, let’s get started.

  1. Water-based fire suppression system

It is a commonly used type of fire suppression system that uses water to extinguish fires. You might have seen a fire sprinkler system in some homes and many businesses. Water is stored in a container or the water supply is connected to the fire suppressor. The fire suppression system identifies the fire and sprinkles a water mist to knock out the fire. The best thing about this system is that it is cheap as compared to other systems. Also, it is easy to replace. But the drawback of using this fire suppression system is that it causes great water damage, hence, it shouldn’t be used near electronics.

  1. Chemical foam suppression system

Kitchen is the most common place where fires start. It’s often due to a hot grease or a cooking blunder. A chemical foam suppression system is specially designed for these situations. You can place them under the cooking canopy so that a little damage is caused if kitchen catches the fire. These fire suppression systems are also easy to use. However, it’s more costly than other systems and needs stainless steel fittings and pipe-work.

  1. Pressurized gas system

With pressurized gas systems, the gas is converted into a liquid by applying pressure and by using liquid nitrogen. Upon detecting the fire, the system discharges the gas, which reacts with the fire for extinguishing it. This fire suppression system is perfect for your server rooms as well as for areas with more electronics. This system is compact as the gas is in liquid form, and there is no oxygen decline. Hence, it’s a proficient firefighting system.

  1. Pneumatic heat detection tube

It’s a fire extinguisher that also has a fire detection technology. It works by monitoring the temperature of its surrounding. For example, when the temperature hit a specific level, it whops a tiny hole in pipe, and extinguisher foam sprinkles out to extinguish the fire. It’s a cheap system and can be installed easily, but it only works great on small-scale fires. Also, it has a compact size and can be transported easily to another area.

  1. Foam deluge system

This fire suppression system is helpful for places where water suppression doesn’t work like oil tanks and transformers. When it detects fire, water combines with foam to spread it and extinguish fire. It is ideal for outdoors, but it creates a huge mess that needs clean-up.
