When an end user is faced with a challenging fire protection problem, clean agent systems may provide the unique solution. These specialized extinguishing systems are usually ceiling mounted and thermally actuated to discharge agent throughout an enclosure. They contain an electrically nonconducting gaseous fire extinguishant that does not leave a residue upon evaporation. FM Approved systems have been evaluated component-by-component to verify the dependability and reliability of the system. The FM Approvals certification gives the end user the peace of mind that the fire extinguishing system has been tested to verify its intended performance should trouble occurs.
When designing these special protection systems to provide protection for a specific occupancy, always consult the manufacturer's design and installation manual.
