HFC 227ea FM 200 Fire Suppression System

FM200 is a popular gas for server room fire suppression systems because of its reduced volume making it each to store within the room space. This system has an ozone depletion potential rating of zero and is an excellent choice for server room and data centre environments.

FM-200®, a trusted choice in waterless fire suppression, is now a member of the DuPont family of clean agent fire extinguishants.

DuPont™ FM-200® is accepted and respected worldwide, with a history of protecting some of the world’s most critical and irreplaceable assets. In fact, FM-200® is in use in over one hundred thousand applications, in more than 70 nations.

Many fire suppression systems can cause major damage to, and even destroy, the very things they are supposed to protect. After all you’re looking to avoid damage, not cause it and looking to reduce downtime, not lengthen it. The solution is a fire suppression system that deploys quickly and cleanly and won’t leave behind oily residue, particulate, or water, fm 200 fire suppression stops fires fast. When you consider the potentially devastating environmental effects of an uncontrolled fire, it’s easy to see that an FM-200® system is an important part of an environmentally responsible fire suppression solution.

FM-200® systems reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, stopping ordinary combustible, electrical, and flammable liquid fires before they cause significant damage. That’s the fastest fire protection available, period. When fire is extinguished this quickly, it means less damage, lower repair costs, and an extra margin of safety for people. It also means less downtime and disruption of business.

FM-200® fire suppressant can be safely used where people are present.

In applications where space is at a premium, FM-200® fire suppression systems are the superior choice. The FM-200® agent is stored in cylinders as a liquid and pressurised with nitrogen, saving huge amounts of storage space. In fact, for the same amount of protection, FM-200® systems take up to seven times less storage space than systems based on CO2 and inert gases.
