Special Hazard Fire Suppression Services

Your business may have unique, irreplaceable, exceptionally valuable, or critical assets that you cannot risk having damaged by water or fire extinguishers. Special hazard fire suppression systems were designed to still keep these assets protected from fire using alternative methods.

Special hazards are commonly seen in facilities that use, store, or maintain chemicals, welding, spray paint, other flammable liquids, combustible dust, and more. Our special hazard suppression systems are fast-acting and highly effective against fires in special hazard applications, keeping your property, personnel, and assets safe from fire damage.

FM-200 Systems

If your business relies on sensitive electronic equipment, FM-200 fire suppression systems are critical to keeping these systems safe. Popular in industries such as telecommunication and data centers, FM-200 is a waterless fire suppression system that minimizes potential damage to your computers, electronics, and communication equipment.

FM-200 employs both chemical and physical means to discharge gas directly onto the surface of combustible materials. This lowers their temperature to a point where they cannot be ignited. Other benefits of FM-200 include:

  • Quick and clean deployment
  • No oily residue, water, or particulate left behind
  • Lower damage to equipment and reduced downtimes

At Guardian Fire Protection, we offer comprehensive FM-200 system services, including inspections, repairs, and installation.

Foam Suppression

Water may not always be the best option when it comes to extinguishing fires. In highly flammable environments, chemical systems are a better alternative. Foam suppression systems eject foam that quickly expands up to 1,000 times its size. This allows the fuel source to be cut off from oxygen, preventing combustion. Because of its quick deployment and the foam’s rapid growth, foam suppression systems are an ideal option for large areas, such as:

  • Airports and aircraft hangars
  • Refineries
  • Marine facilities
  • Jet engine test facilities
  • And more

Guardian Fire Protection provides installation, replacement, repair, maintenance, and testing service for your foam fire suppression systems.

Halon Systems

In the 1980s, Halon was deemed an ozone-depleting substance, making it no longer legal to produce. While it’s illegal to produce Halon, it is still legal to own and operate a previously installed Halon fire suppression system. If your facility still uses a Halon system, Guardian Fire Protection can help with inspection, repair and recharge services. We’ll ensure your Halon fire suppression system services meet strict EPA and NFPA requirements.

If you’d like to replace your Halon system with a more environmentally friendly option, the team at Guardian Fire Protection will work with you to implement a new system that’s still suited to your needs.
