Commercial Fire Protection: Suppression Systems
Fire Suppression Systems are a key element within the commercial fire protection business. As a Certified Amerex Distributor, we have the ability to create a solution to any of your suppression needs such as a kitchen hood, industrial, or FM-200 system.
Inside your average commercial kitchen lies an abundance of elements which could be used as fuel for a fire, such as grease or multiple forms of cooking oils. With the ever available supply of oxygen and multiple sources of heat, your kitchen presents itself as a perfect candidate for a potential fire. Having a fire inside a commercial kitchen could be crucial to the daily operations and in some cases even fatal. Kitchen Hood Suppression Systems provide the best possible protection and are the industry standard to protect and prevent these situations.
There are also many different scenarios where your business may require or benefit from having an Industrial Fire Suppression System. The most common use for an Industrial Suppression System is within paint spray booths, but may also be used in mechanical rooms or flammable liquid storage areas. As a Certified Amerex Distributor we can offer Pre-Engineered Systems to protect any of your current or future needs.
The Amerex “IS” industrial system incorporates an automatic detection system that will operate in case of a fire 24/7, even if no one is present. As with the rest of the “IS” system design and philosophy, the automatic fire detection system uses fewer components which save on installation and maintenance costs.
There are two primary agents used in the affordable pre-engineered systems:
- Industry recognized FM-200
- 3M – Novec 1230
