CO2 FLOODING / FOAM / HALON SYSTEM

CO2  fire extinguishing systems are designed for local protection and protection of premises.

  • local application systems
      
    protect objects particularly at risk, eg. Printing machines, engine test benches, switchgear and control systems.

  • total flooding systems

    flood whole rooms in case of fire, eg. Varnish stores, paint mixing rooms, machine rooms, computer centres, etc. For smaller installations, CO2 is stored in high pressure steel cylinders which can be combined to batteries (modular low pressure systems)

    For larger qualities in excess of approx. 2.000 kg it is more economical to use a low-pressure system – also called TIKKO system,. Pipes leading from the container to the risk, where the CO2 , in the event of a fire and after a pre-set warning time, is released through nozzles. The systems can be actuated either manually or automatically.

Halon fire extinguishing systems

halon systems provide excellent protection for all valuable objects such as EDP systems, laboratories, museums, etc. The principle of operation and effect is similar to the CO2 systems except the halon, unlike CO2 is not dangerous to human life in the concentration recommended.

Foam fire extinguishing systems

foam systems are used, among other applications, to protect tank farms, ship engine rooms, warehouses and aircraft hangars.
In case of fire, a foam compound/ water solution is delivered to special nozzles, foam branchpipes or foam/water monitors which evenly distribute the foam over the area to be protected.

Electronic fire alarm systems

fire alarm systems sense fires at the earliest possible stage. The fully electronic fire detectors installed in the rooms to be protected transmit the appropriate signal to the fire alarm control panel, which converts this alarm message visually and acoustically (alarm) and in direct sequence releases fire-fighting systems. The exact position of the fire can be indicated , alarm sirens and flashing lights can be switched on, fire doors closed, smoke extraction flaps opened, air conditioning systems and machines switched off and connected fire extinguishing installations released, according to the design of the system.
