  • Dry pipe sprinkler system
  • CO2 System
  • Foam Water System
  • FM 200 System


Automatic Fire Suppression System


Wet Pipe Sprinkler System:

Wet pipe sprinkler systems are installed more often than all other types of fire sprinkler systems. They also are the most reliable, because they are simple, with the only operating components being the automatic sprinklers and the automatic alarm check valve. An automatic water supply provides water under pressure to the system piping.


–          Simple and reliable system

–          Minimum installation and maintenance cost

–          Ease of modification

–          Less downtime for system restoring



–          Wet pipe systems are not suited for freezing environments.


Dry Pipe Sprinkler System:

Dry pipe systems are installed in spaces in which the ambient temperature may be cold enough to freeze the water in a wet pipe system, rendering the system inoperable. Dry pipe systems are most often used in unheated buildings, in parking garages, in outside canopies attached to heated buildings (in which a wet pipe system would be provided), or in refrigerated coolers. Dry pipe systems are the second most common sprinkler system type. In regions using NFPA regulations, dry pipe systems cannot be installed unless the range of ambient temperatures reaches above 40F.


–          Automatic protection where freezing is possible

–          Chances of leakage reduces as water only flows through pipe during fire incidents



–          Increased complexity

–          Higher installation and maintenance costs

–          Lower design flexibility

–          Increased fire response time

–          Increased corrosion potential


CO2 Fire Suppression System:

CO2 systems are the preferred choice as an extinguishing agent for a multitude of critical facilities. Fast, efficient and adaptable to a wide range of hazards, the discharge of carbon dioxide [a low-cost clean agent] is non-damaging to property and electrically non-conductive. Multi-Hazard Protection can be designed to provide automatic, simultaneous discharge for a variety of hazards and configurations.


–         Very Fast action to suppress the combustion

–          Environmentally Friendly

–          Non-damaging

–          Electrically Non-conductive

–          Effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials



–         High cost of installation and operation


Application of CO2 systems:

–          Power Generation

–          Cement Plant/Blast Furnace Indirect Coal Firing Systems

–          Metal Production and Processing

–          Printing

–          Automotive

–          Electronics Operations

–          Electronics/Computer Production

–          Research Facilities

–          Shipboard (Marine) Systems

–          Automated Storage and Retrieval Facilities


Low-pressure CO2 systems and equipment are best suited for applications where large quantities of CO2 are needed. A high-pressure system is recommended for smaller hazards or where space is limited.

A CO2 fire suppression system consists of one or more banks of cylinder storage containers to supply the CO2 extinguishing agent. Flexible discharge hoses connect the cylinders into a piping manifold. The manifold distributes the agent into the piping network. Nozzles regulate the flow of CO2 into the protected area.


Foam Water Fire Suppression System

A foam water fire sprinkler system is a special application system, discharging a mixture of water and low expansion foam concentrate, resulting in a foam spray from the sprinkler. These systems are usually used with special hazards occupancies associated with high challenge fires, such as flammable liquids, and airport hangars. Operation is as described above, depending on the system type into which the foam is injected.

–          Foam/chemical fire suppression systems are ideal for commercial and industrial applications

–          Used extensively in facilities that have flammable liquid storage


FM 200 Automatic Fire Suppression System

A substitute to ozone-depleting Halon 1301 fire suppression systems, the FM-200 is the leading clean gaseous agent fire suppression systems for industrial application. It is designed to extinguish combustible, flammable liquids and electrical fires in less than 10 seconds; it is the fastest fire protection available.



–          Least damage

–          Lower repairing costs

–          Reduced downtime

–          Added safety for personnel and property.

We design, install and repair waterless FM-200 fire suppression systems for a variety of high-hazard commercial and industrial applications, including data processing centers, process control rooms, clean manufacturing facilities, bank vaults, simulators, battery backup rooms and document storage areas.
