5 Surprising Reasons To Install An FM-200 Fire Suppression System
The FM 200 fire suspension system is a highly effective, environmentally friendly fire suppression agent that doesn’t contribute to ozone depletion. It’s stored as a colorless, odorless liquid that dispenses as a clear vapor. This non-reactive agent doesn’t obscure vision, is non-corrosive, and leaves no residue. This makes it ideal for a wide variety of fire suppression applications. There are many other benefits of this system.
Easy to install:
The FM 200 fire suspension system has several benefits. It is available worldwide and is easy to install. With an FM-200 system, data centers no longer have to worry about storing hundreds or thousands of canisters of fire suppression fluid, freeing up space to store other supplies. While an FM-200 system is not considered “green,” it emits a small amount of carbon dioxide, contributing to global warming.
It is non-hazardous by nature:
Another FM 200 fire suspension benefit is its non-hazardous nature. FM-200 has no odor or chemical reactivity as a colorless, odorless gas. It is also non-corrosive and electrically non-conductive, so it will not damage sensitive equipment or the environment. Unlike water-based fire suppression systems, FM-200 doesn’t produce smoke or ash, requiring no post-discharge clean-up. In addition, it can significantly reduce the risk of inhalation of burning materials and smoke buildup.
Another benefit of the FM-200 fire suspension system is that it doesn’t leave behind residues or harm electronic equipment. Because of this, servers in an affected data hall can continue to function normally. Unlike some other fire suppression agents, the FM-200 fire suspension agent is non-conductive and won’t damage servers.
The waterless fire suspension system is an effective solution for class C fires. It is safe for humans and the environment because it contains no harmful chemicals and does not deplete ozone. It also saves a lot of space. Compared to other fire suppression systems that rely on CO2 or inert gasses, FM 200 systems require seven times less storage space.
Safe for humans:
Another benefit of FM 200 is its safety for humans. It is colorless and odorless and doesn’t cause any vision problems. It also does not produce any residue, so it is not dangerous for people to breathe. It has been approved by the Environmental protection agency and meets NFPA 2001 standards.
