Halon Fire suppression Systems
Do you currently have a Halon 1301 fire suppression system installed in your Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, DC commercial building? Scientific evidence has determined that Halon 1301 is an ozone depleting substance and, in accordance with the Clean Air Act of 1994, new production of Halon 1301 has been banned. However, it is legal to still own and operate a Halon 1301 fire suppression system if you already have one installed. If you want your Halon 1301 fire suppression system inspected, repaired, recharged, or replaced, call Guardian Fire Protection Services today.
Schedule your Halon fire suppression system services by giving us a call at (301) 861-0972 or filling out the form to the right.
Our Halon Fire Suppression System Services
Halon 1301 Fire Suppression System Inspection
Because of Halon 1301′s powerful ozone depleting properties, the EPA has very strict laws pertaining to the inspection and maintenance of Halon 1301 fire suppression systems. National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 12A standards, which pertain to Halon 1301 fire suppression systems, require that all systems be thoroughly inspected, tested, and documented for operation by a certified trained fire suppression systems technician.
During inspection, the quantity of extinguishing agent and the pressure of refillable containers must be checked. If inspection shows significant changes in these levels, meaning a 5 percent loss in net weight or a 10 percent drop in pressure, the system must be refilled or replaced.
Halon 1301 Fire Suppression System Recharge
Even though new Halon 1301 manufacture has been banned, there is still plenty of existing recycled Halon 1301 that can be used to recharge your system in the event of a discharge. If you need to recharge your Halon 1301 fire suppression system, call Guardian Fire Protection Services today.
Halon 1301 Fire Suppression System Removal
While you are not required to remove your Halon 1301 fire suppression system from use, the EPA highly recommends doing so and replacing your system with a more environmentally friendly option. Guardian Fire Protection Services can remove your Halon 1301 system from your building and can recycle any remaining Halon you had on hand. Newer agents were developed to replace Halon 1301, and if you find that the area you have protected by 1301 has to be modified or enlarged, Guardian Fire can work with you on implementing a solution utilizing FM-200.
