Carbon dioxide or CO2 is a colorless, odourless, electrically non-conductive gas, that’s highly efficient as a fire suppression agent. Carbon dioxide gas has a high rate of expansion, which allows a CO2 fire protection system to work fast.
When applied to a fire, CO2 provides a heavy blanket of gas that reduces the oxygen level to a point where combustion cannot occur. Since carbon dioxide is a gas, there is no clean-up associated with a CO2 fire suppression system discharge, which ultimately means that there is minimal interruption to your business. In fact, the cost of clean-up and peripheral damage associated with water sprinkler systems or foam systems can exceed the costs associated with the actual fire damage. With a Carbon Dioxide system, clean up costs and downtime associated with a CO2 discharge are negligible.
CO2 fire suppression systems are extremely versatile, effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials and approved for Class A, B, and C hazards.
