Gaseous Fire Suppression Systems

What are gaseous fire suppression systems?

Gaseous suppression systems generally consist of a detection and activation system linked to a pre-determined store of gas. When the fire has been detected, the release of the gas is initiated. Systems are most commonly ‘total flood systems’, meaning that the whole protected risk area is filled to achieve a specific design concentration, suppressing the fire. Local application systems are also available to discharge gas directly at a specific risk.

All gaseous extinguishing agents used by Global are naturally occurring gases or blends of naturally occurring gases. All agents have zero ozone depletion potential and the Global Warming Potential is not applicable, since the agents consist of naturally occurring gases only.

Typical Applications

  • Data Vaults
  • Network Server Rooms
  • Telecommunications Switch Rooms
  • Air Traffic Control Centres
  • Control Rooms
  • Power Plants
  • Cell Sites
  • Museum/Archive Store Rooms

By using a gas fire suppression system to protect these appliances, you remove the risk of any damage to equipment, data and property that could be caused by water or chemical agent fire suppression systems.
