Each system is configured to the size and type of equipment it is protecting whether it is in-doors, out-doors, or somewhere in between. We can help you determine what you need to be compliant and make adjustments for any expansion project you may have later. Every system we install is done so by NICET certified personnel and inspected regularly, fulfilling code and insurance requirements.

*About Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems

Clean agent refers to a class of extinguishing chemicals that are generally nonconductive, environmentally and people friendly.  FM-200™, for example, does not disrupt electronics, vaporizes quickly after discharging on a fire leaving no residue.  This facilitates quicker recovery after a fire and has little to zero impact on the environment, which is not the case with Halon systems.  Halon, while it is a clean agent, is not environmentally friendly and its manufacturing is banned.  Some of these systems do still exist and are serviceable but their parts are increasingly difficult to find.  Systems using FM-200™, Inergen®, and Novec™ 1230 are great alternatives.  Pair your system with Ansul's Cleanguard portable fire extinguishers and your facility is well protected.
