“Repairing the damage caused by a fire the size of the Great Fire of London today would cost insurers at least £37 billion* – the equivalent cost of building four Olympic Parks.” As quoted by ABI news.
Fire Suppression Systems
Siege Fire Systems are specialists in the installation, service and maintenance of Gaseous fire suppression systems. These systems are designed to reduce the oxygen levels in the atmosphere to suppress a fire. Mainly used in data centres, server rooms, electrical rooms, and anywhere where there is high value equipment and a possible risk of fire. There are several different types of system that we install. We either use chemical gases or inert gases. They both have the same principal and reduce the oxygen levels in the atmosphere while also cooling. A well-designed gas suppression system means that water is not always necessary to tackle a fire.
With over 16 years’ experience, we are the experts you need to ensure proper fire safety prevention and protection. We cover the whole nation and our team has a client focused approach to providing the services we offer. We consider each client’s unique situation and work with them to find the best solution for their needs.
Gaseous Fire Suppression System
Gaseous fire suppression systems use inert gases and chemical agents to extinguish a fire. This is also called clean agent fire suppression. These agents are governed by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standard for Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems – NFPA 2001 in the USA, with different standards and regulations in other parts of the world.
The system typically consists of the agent, agent storage containers, agent release valves, fire detectors, fire detection systems (wiring control panel, actuation signaling), agent delivery piping, and agent dispersion nozzles. Typically, gaseous agents work in one of two ways. The first is to inert the atmosphere, reducing the oxygen levels to a level that will no longer sustain combustion. Then, the second is to react chemically with the fire, absorbing heat and causing the chain reaction of combustion to break down.
If the answer is “yes” to any of the above, then a clean agent fire suppression system is the right solution for you!
