The most effective prevention of fires and the best way to minimize damage from one is to have a workplace safety program in place. A fire suppression system will detect fires automatically and is able to prevent fires in the workplace. A gaseous fire suppression system is the better choice over the water-based fire suppression system as it will eliminate damage to equipment or documents that can be damaged by water and still support a safe environment following a fire for personnel.
Disadvantage of the Sprinkler System
Technology introduced fast suppression sprinkler systems which reduced the damage caused to buildings by fires. These systems, however; did not save businesses from the loss of their equipment or other items that cannot withstand water damage. It has been estimated a business can lose more than 40% of their inventory or materials when experiencing a fire. With a sprinkler system in place, what the fire doesn’t damage, chances are the water will destroy. The alternative to using a sprinkler system if you have inventory, equipment, or documents that cannot come into contact with water is the clean agent gaseous fire suppression system.
Benefits of the Gaseous Fire Suppression System
There are factors that support a fire to either ignite or continue burning. The gaseous fire suppression removes these elements so that fires can be prevented or extinguished quicker. These systems can either reduce heat, reduce oxygen, or reduce all factors at the same time to prevent fires from occurring or put them out quicker after detected.
The gaseous fire suppression system has been proven to not only prevent fires but if a fire does occur, having one allows the business to recover quicker from any damages they may have suffered. These systems are also able to reach areas hard to get at to extinguish a fire before there’s a chance of spreading such as inside electronic machinery. The gaseous fire suppression also works well against A, B, and C fires.
Health studies have been conducted to determine if these systems pose any threats or will cause any serious health hazards. There have been no threats found, and the agents available have undergone control measures for toxicity and meet national safety standards. These substances leave the room after proper ventilation, so there is no lingering after effects to harm humans or the environment.
