Who Needs Commercial Fire Suppression?
If your business contains collectible items, mission-critical electronics, or other delicate assets that could be damaged by water, a commercial fire suppression system is ideal. This is also the best option if the types of fires liable to ignite in your building only spread when water enters the picture. Examples of businesses that need commercial fire suppression include:
- Server rooms and IT centers
- Museums and archive storage rooms
- Historical sites
- Restaurants and other properties with commercial kitchens
- Chemical plants, printing presses, and other industrial settings
- Airplane hangars
- Spray paint and auto body shops
- Hazardous material storage areas
Types of Commercial Fire Suppression
Guardian Fire Protection partners with top fire suppression brands, including Ansul, Pyro-Chem, Kidde, and others. These manufacturers produce different types of systems designed to protect against specific hazards. The main categories of extinguishing agents used in commercial fire suppression include:
- Wet chemicals – Comprised primarily of potassium acetate, and sometimes potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate, wet chemical suppression is ideal for extinguishing grease fires in commercial kitchens.
- Dry chemicals – Areas containing flammable liquids or hazardous materials benefit from dry chemical suppression, which includes sodium bicarbonate, potassium bicarbonate, or monoammonium phosphate. These non-conductive chemicals are safe to use around live electronic equipment.
- Clean agents – FM-200, CO2, Halon, foam, and Inergen are all examples of clean agents. They safeguard critical assets without leaving water, chemicals, or residue behind.
