Inert Gas Fire Suppression Systems
Inert gas fire suppression systems such as Carbon Dioxide and Argonite are most commonly found in Industrial applications and unlike the clean agent fire extinguishers, do not necessarily need protection boundaries in order to be effective. The Inert gases suppress fire through oxygen depletion, thus are not likely candidates for most occupied areas.
As one of the oldest fire suppression agents, CO2 has a tried and true track record when it comes to fire suppression. Many manufacturers of CO2 systems have been in the business for over 70 years and continue to view CO2 as a proven fire suppression agent.
Iowa Fire Equipment Company has been involved in the installation of CO2 fire suppression systems for over 30 years and has worked with both high-pressure systems and low-pressure systems. Iowa Fire Equipment company installs Kidde CO2 fire systems and Chemetron CO2 fire systems.
Local application and total flooding inert gas fire suppression systems are available to protect your specific hazard. Our sales and design staff will help you determine which type of system is best suited for you in order to protect your specific hazard.
