Environmentally Friendly Fire Suppression
Effect on the Environment
The extinguishing agent of the future for both areal and local protection and for portable fire-fighting methods.
FirePro® aerosol fire extinguishers and extinguishing systems contain the solid, aerosol forming compound SBK which- once activated - is transformed into a fast expanding, highly effective extinguishing aerosol.
The most important properties of the FirePro® aerosol extinguishers and extinguishing systems, when applied properly and in the prescribed manner, are:
The required maintenance is negligible compared with the maintenance that must be done on any other conventional system.
