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:

  • they are more efficient and effective than any other conventional system
  • the agent is contained in containers that are not under pressure
  • they are environmentally friendly and do not harm the ozone layer
  • ODP = 0 (Ozone Depletion Potential)
  • GWP = 0 (Global Warming Potential)
  • ALT = negligible (Atmospheric Life Time)
  • they are non-corrosive - they do not damage goods and equipment
  • they are harmless for people, animals, and nature
  • they work autonomously and automatically - no power supply or compressed air required (but they can be connected to any conventional alarm, detection, and/or activating system)
  • they can be delivered in a wide range of different shapes and sizes (depending on the volume that must be protected)
  • they can be delivered in a large number of different types (depending on the specific project requirements)

The required maintenance is negligible compared with the maintenance that must be done on any other conventional system.
