Fire Suppression Systems – Automatic
innovation, engineering & superior fire prevention
Below is the key range of Fire Suppression Systems that FASS offer. We are also able to offer bespoke fire suppression systems and would welcome the opportunity to discus this further with you. All of our systems can be scaled up or down as required, from a vehicle suppression system to protect your classic car, right up to whole machinery plant rooms – what ever your requirements, FASS can help.
What are fire suppression systems?
Automatic fire suppression systems suppress, control and extinguish fires often without the need for human intervention.
We install, service and maintain a variety of fire suppression system options, both standalone and system integrated.
We supply, install and service FIREDETEC Compact Fire Suppression Systems as we feel it is the superior product of choice within the fire suppression market.
However we also can service and maintain other fire suppression systems upon request.
FIREDETEC is an automatic fire suppression system for small enclosures, fume cabinet protection and micro-environments.
Typically fitted in confined areas, they can also be installed in server rooms, backup generator rooms, commercial kitchens and even vehicles. We refer to them as Micro Automatic Fire Suppression Systems or MAFSS.
Available systems include:
- Highly versatile system suitable for a range of environments
- Can be activated by human intervention or automatically by detection
- Large selection of gas mixes available aimed at specific uses
When installing a fire suppression systems, we will ensure it is designed so that the pipe runs are not obstructed and that the discharge will not be obscured in an emergency. The room/enclosure that the fire suppression system is going to protect must also be suitable for the pressures created by the fire suppression systems when discharging its fire suppression agent. If our survey shows that the room is not solid enough, we will install pressure relief venting to compensate for this.The fire suppression system can be used in two different ways, either manual or automatic. In manual mode, the fire suppression agent is only released when someone activates the actuator where as in automatic mode, the system will be triggered when smoke or heat is detected. The automatic release of the fire suppression agent can be varied in time between the point of detecting the smoke or fire, to when it actually starts to extinguish the smoke or fire.
It’s important to make it clear that this is a suppression system and not an extinguisher – it’s designed to manage the fire and suppress it stop it spreading. If the fire suppression agent is released too quickly it will not manage the fire and it will rapidly reignite the fire and spread.
