A Dependable Clean Agent Fire Suppression System Relies On Quality Components And Parts

February 28, 2018 Roy Williams

Quality components in your clean agent fire suppression system ensure that everything works the way it should when the system is called upon to protect lives and property. For this reason, Jay L. Harman Fire Equipment uses only the highest quality components during both installation and subsequent maintenance replacements.

Smoke detectors are the first line of defense in any clean agent fire suppression system. Fires can quickly grow out of hand when these fail to detect a fire and transmit the presence of a growing threat to the control panel. Routine testing and prompt replacement of defective smoke detectors is essential for keeping property from going up in flames.

Next to smoke detectors, the control panel is the next most critical component in a clean agent fire suppression system. As the brains of the system, the control panel is responsible for transmitting signals to release devices and other components responsible for neutralizing the threat.

It is also critical that notification devices including alarms and strobe lights function properly. These devices warn those in the immediate vicinity that there is a threat from fire and that the system has been activated. These systems make it possible for individuals to evacuate the area to a point of safety prior to the dispersal of fire suppressant by the release device, cylinders, and nozzles. As with other systems, these critical components must be carefully selected as failure with any of these can have disastrous consequences that can allow the fire to spread beyond the point where it can be contained and controlled.

Similarly, it is imperative to ensure that the abort switch is of the highest quality standards. This device does not abort the dispersal of clean chemical agents, rather it initiates a delay that allows personnel to clear and evacuate an area prior to the dispersal of fire suppressants. This protects personnel and helps prevent secondary injuries that can result from the inhalation of chemicals that can cause injury when introduced into the atmosphere. As with the abort switch, it is crucial that the manual release function properly. This functional tool allows the system to be activated manually when other components fail. This last line of defense is a fail safe that no business can afford to have fail when moments matter and lives are on the line.

Prior to installation or replacement, our Jay L Harman team of installation professionals utilize our experience and expertise to identify and recommend only the finest quality components. The result is that our clients can rely upon their clean agent fire suppression systems to provide the protection they promise when fires begin to smolder whether it is in a restaurant, office building, or residential apartment complex.

The team at Jay L. Harman Fire Equipment carefully select each component we install so that they meet the highest quality standards and all applicable guidelines and fire codes. This creates a solid layer of protection that our clients can depend upon to protect them from the hazards fires present to personnel, property, and patrons.
