Carbon Dioxide (CO2)
Protecting life & property by design... not chance.
Aspect fire solutions are specialists in the supply, installation and maintenance of Carbon Dioxide fire suppression systems.
Carbon Dioxide the original ‘clean’ agent, it has been utilised in a wide variety of applications to fight fires for over 50 years.It is generally used in areas that are designated as “un-occupied”, as at the design concentrations used for fire suppression carbon dioxide can be hazardous to people.It has the advantage over other extinguishing gases that in can be used as a “total flood” to protect areas such as generator rooms, switch rooms which have solid walls, roof & floors.Also it can be also used as “local application” where it can be discharged directly on to a high risk area of a production line such as a printing press, deep fat fryer for example and envelope the protected area in Carbon dioxide to extinguish a fire.Carbon Dioxide produces no chemical residues or decom-position products, therefore making it ideal to use in the food industry and industries where contamination of a process or product is not an option.
How it Works
Carbon Dioxide extinguishes a fire by physical means in two ways. Firstly by decreasing the oxygen level below 15%, most fires are un-able to maintain combustion at such low levels. Secondly by cooling and heat absorption.
Service and Maintenance
In order to optimise the performance of any fire suppression system service and maintenance in accordance with the relevant standards is essential. We are able to offer full 24/7 maintenance and call out facility. In addition we offer in house room integrity testing of protected enclosures.
