Here at G&R Fire Systems, Inc., we offer a range of services designed to help ensure that your property and employees are as protected as possible in the event of a fire. One key element of creating a robust fire protection system includes choosing the right kind of fire suppression system. There are several options available for fire suppression systems, and our team is prepared to assist you with finding the best one for your facilities.
The first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they think of fire suppression systems is sprinklers. You might be surprised to learn that the term “fire suppression systems” generally refers to foam or gas suppression systems. Sprinklers are typically classified in their own category altogether: “fire sprinkler systems.” Allow us to explain the key elements of foam and gas fire suppression systems.
Gas fire suppression systems use inert gases like nitrogen, argon, or carbon monoxide to displace or reduce the oxygen levels around a fire. As we all know, fire needs oxygen to survive, so by displacing or reducing the oxygen levels, gas fire suppression systems can effectively smother a fire without causing additional property damage that is associated with many other fire suppression systems.
Foam fire suppression systems also depend on smothering a fire, but as the name suggests, with foam rather than gases. This kind of fire suppression system is very effective for dealing with flammable liquids, so it is commonly used in industrial settings.
Our team mainly deals with fire sprinkler systems, but we’re also able to offer our assistance with other types of fire suppression systems for businesses in and around the Ontario area. Call us today to learn more!
