Fire suppression systems automatically deploy and put out fires using water or a combination thereof. Here are some common fire protection methods:
Water – This fire suppression system is most frequently used by people. These sprinklers, which are completely safe for people, will most often be seen when you enter public spaces that have high populations of people. This is because these types of systems can’t be transported or moved to a new place.
Gas – These fire protection systems won’t put out a fire by smothering the fire with chemicals or another agent. They prevent the fire from burning and reduce its oxygen consumption. This solution is not ideal for areas where people are present. This technique is frequently used in computer rooms or data center where water and fire suppressive chemicals can damage the computer system, thereby compromising critical data. It is essential that the room be sealed, and that there be a warning system in case of deployment. This will allow anyone inside the room to escape in sufficient time before the system activates.
Aerosol – This latest technology in fire suppression is Aerosol. These fire protection products release a fine fog or mist that settles and stops the ignition of the fire. It is considered safe and non-toxic. The material can be easily brushed off after deployment.
