Condensed aerosol vs conventional fire protection
FirePro can list plenty of arguments as to why it uses aerosol extinguishing equipment instead of conventional fire protection systems. You will find the most important ones below.
Purpose of the extinguishing equipment
The conventional extinguishing equipment aim to slow down the fire, thereby gaining time for two reasons;
The FirePro extinguishing equipment, on the other hand, aim to fight the fire directly at the source. The FirePro condensed aerosol extinguishing systems are lightweight and only take up a small amount of space. That makes them easy to install, enabling you to fight the fire directly at the source.
Damage control of extinguishing systems
It has been established that conventional extinguishing agents can cause more severe consequential damages than condensed aerosol extinguishing equipment. Extinguishing systems such as sprinklers and water mist can damage documents, equipment, and furniture. Other extinguishing systems, including gas, foam, and powder extinguishing installations can result in damages to valuables, machines, and people.
The FirePro fire extinguishing installations are highly effective and minimise the consequential damages. This is because the FirePro extinguishing agent, condensed aerosol, is non-corrosive. They are also easy to install and minimise the adverse effects resulting from a fire.
Maintenance of extinguishing systems
Conventional extinguishing systems are relatively high-maintenance compared to the FirePro condensed aerosol extinguishing systems. The installation of conventional extinguishing systems often require structural provisions such as the implementation of pipeworks. They also often need to be thoroughly and regularly checked, which takes time and can result in high maintenance costs.
The FirePro stainless steel extinguishing systems are robust, reliable, and highly effective. An additional advantage is that an investment in a FirePro extinguishing installation gives a much higher return compared to conventional extinguishing systems as our installations are low-maintenance and have a lifespan of at least 15 years.
