Kidde Fire Systems offers Fluoro-K™ (FK-5-1-12), 3M™ Novec™ 1230 and FM-200™ (HFC-227ea) clean agent fire suppression agents in versatile total flood type delivery system platforms including ECS™, ECS-500™ and ADS™ to protect valuable assets in occupied areas from fire. These are applications in facilities that cannot afford the downtime associated with a fire or typical water-based fire suppression systems. Fires are caused by a combination of fuel, oxygen and heat. Clean Agents absorb heat from the surface of the burning material and effectively lower its temperature below the ignition point – thereby disrupting the fire triangle and suppressing the fire. The suppression agents do not harm the equipment or personnel in the protected room or cause a mess to clean up afterwards. Kidde Fire Systems’ Clean Agents offer fast extinguishment, suppressing fires within seconds of the agent being discharged into the protected area. The agents are ventilated out of the space and do not leave behind a residue to be cleaned up, allowing your facility to get back to work immediately. Clean Agents are non-toxic when used in compliance with NFPA Standard 2001. They do not impair breathing or obscure vision in an emergency situation, providing an added measure of safety for personnel.
