Fire Suppression Systems

As one of the three elements of the ‘fire triangle’, oxygen (along with fuel and heat) is needed for any fire to flourish. Gas suppression systems tackle a fire by automatically filling a room with an inert gas (usually carbon dioxide), reducing the oxygen present to less than 15%, the level below which combustion is unable to happen.

That makes them safe to use in many environments, but a gaseous fire suppression system is particularly useful in server rooms, computer suites and other locations containing a lot of electrical equipment. That’s because it leaves no residue and won’t damage electrical equipment.

Scutum North is a leading local supplier and installer of top-quality gas fire protection solutions across North England, including the areas in and around Leeds, Sheffield and Manchester.

How does a fire suppression system work?

A fire suppression system works by filling a sealed room with a gas – usually that will be carbon dioxide – that can safely extinguish a fire in a location where there is valuable electrical equipment, such as a server room. We can also carry out room integrity testing to check that the space in which a fire suppression system has been installed is secure enough for it to work effectively.

What is the difference between a fire suppression system and a sprinkler system?

A fire suppression system uses inert gas to kill a fire, whereas a sprinkler system uses water. That makes the fire suppression system the better choice for fires involving valuable electrical equipment.
