FM200 Extinguishing Systems offer extra peace of mind where buildings contain valuable equipment such as computers, vital communication rooms, data storage or valuable archives. If a fire condition is detected the gas is discharged throughout the protected space, extinguishing the fire and causing minimum damage to the contents of the room.
FM200 systems provide electrical non-conductivity, minimal downtime to users following a fire and also leave no residue once discharged, therefore ensuring no big clean up and immediate business continuity.
FM200, Also known as HFC 227ea, is a liquefiable gas which is stored in liquid form and only achieves its operating gas state when discharged into the protected area. This type of extinguishing system works by a chemical reaction so the oxygen level within the protected area remains at a breathable level. FM200 requires a relatively limited volume of stored liquid with a wide range of cylinder size, so this is the preferred choice where space is limited.
