Clean Agent Suppression Systems
Using water to extinguish a fire is not always the ideal choice…
When you are trying to protect critical assets such as IT systems, data storage rooms and manufacturings equipment, or irreplaceable items like customer/client records, intellectual property, art, antiques and artifacts – using water will just compound the damage. Using a Clean Agent fire suppression system in this case is the best solution.
Novec 1230, FM-200 and Argonite are the preferred Clean Agent fire suppression systems of Approved Protection Systems.
There are 3 ways clean agents can extinguish a fire:
Reduction of heat (FM-200, Novec 1230)
Reduction or isolation of oxygen (Argonite)
Inhibiting the chain reaction of the above components (FM-200)

NFPA 17A - 11.3.1
At least semiannually and after any system activation, inspection/maintenance shall be conducted in accordance with the manufacturer's design, installation, and maintenance manual.
An emergency light is a battery-backed lighting device that switches on automatically when a building experiences a power outage. Emergency lights are standard in new commercial and high occupancy residential buildings. International Fire Code requires assurance that emergency and exit lighting systems will provide illumination for at least 60 minutes. We can perform annual testing on your emergency lighting systems to ensure they are functioning properly.
NFPA 1997 5-9.3
Periodic Testing of Emergency Lighting Equipment
An annual test shall be conducted for a 1-1/2 hour duration. Equipment shall be fully functional for the duration of the test.
One of the most important fire protection systems you can install is a Fire Alarm. Let us help you protect your assets by designing a Fire Alarm system you can rely. Get a quick-response method of alerting the occupants in your building of a fire so they can get to safety as quickly as possible. Already have a Fire Alarm system in place? Let us set up a service program for periodic testing, inspection, and maintenance that conforms to:
NFPA code requirements
Local authorities having jurisdiction (AHJs)
System manufacturer's recommended inspection and maintenance requirements
Required Annual Fire Alarm System Testing
A Fire Extinguisher is something we all notice "hanging" around, but they require much more care than they actually receive. Fire Extinguishers are required to be inspected annually according to NFPA 10. They are also required to be hydro tested (A hydrostatic test is a way in which pressure vessels such as Fire Extinguishers can be tested for strength and leaks) every 12 years. based on the date of manufacture. Any time you use your fire extinguisher, even if you release only a little bit, you need to have your fire extinguisher recharged. Losing even just a few milliseconds of pressure could result in faulty fire extinguisher operation and potentially a fire that does not get extinguished in time to save your building.
High Sensitivity Smoke Detection - HSSD
Early action may avoid the general fire alarm in a building activating – how much time and cost is lost through persons standing out on the street whilst the fire alarm is investigated and persons allowed to re-enter the building to continue their work?
It can avoid possible shutdown of air con controlling the Server Room with possible overheat and loss of Server function.
Avoids probable escalation to a gas release
In the event of a gas suppression system release, the cost of an HSSD system would be less than the recharge costs of any gas suppression system – no better payback than that!

Fire sprinkler systems are required to be inspected in accordance with NFPA 25. An inspection is a visual examination of a water-based fire protection system, or portion thereof to verify that it appears to be in operating condition and is free of physical damage.A procedure to determine the status of a system by conducting physical checks on water-based fire protection systems such as water-flow tests, fire pump tests and trip tests of dry pipe, deluge, or pre-action valves. Our certified technicians can preform these required tests for you.
