Gaseous Suppression Systems

Gaseous fire suppression is a term to describe the us of inert gases and chemical agents to extinguish a fire, also called Clean Agent Fire Suppression.

Gaseous agents work in two different ways. The first is by reducing oxygens levels to a level that will no longer sustain combustion. The second is via a chemical reaction with the fire absorbing the heat and causing the chain reaction of combustion to break down.


Gaseous suppression systems are typically used in the protection of high-value property that cannot be protected by a wet system due to damage of property. Some examples of these would be Data Centres,  Control centres for mine sites, telecommunications facilities etc
