Clean agent suppression systems are critical to the fire safety of many businesses. AAA Fire Protection ensures that your system is certified, functioning properly, and ready in case of a fire.
Maintaining a Clean Agent Suppression System
Like any fire safety system, clean agent suppression systems require periodic attention. Your system may need testing every year or more frequently, the results of which need to be filed with your local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ). Routine maintenance is also advisable, so that your system is ready for a fire at any moment. When you partner with AAA Fire Protection, we take these worries off your plate. We will perform the necessary tasks to keep your system running smoothly, while providing 24/7 on-call support.
Clean agent suppression systems are critical in the protection of electrical equipment. Don’t leave system repairs until it’s too late.
Working With AAA Fire Protection
Our team of technicians provide testing and inspections for most clean agent systems offered on the market. To ensure a thorough job, inspection appointments take approximately two hours, and you can typically expect two technicians to be on the job. We can refill some clean agent systems with non-proprietary chemicals, however, we do not install clean agent systems.
During the testing process, our technicians will evaluate the connections between the systems’ cylinders, whether the power shuts down power when activated, and other mechanisms of the system. Afterward, we will file your test results with the appropriate local authority.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why Use a Clean Agent Suppression System?
Clean agent systems provide two key advantages over sprinkler systems. First, unlike sprinkler systems, they do not put electronic devices at risk of damage. Second, they do not leave behind residue, thus minimizing clean-up time from a fire.
How Do Clean Agent Systems Work?
Fires require oxygen to burn. Clean agent systems release inert gases that chemically suppress oxygen in the air, thus suffocating the fire.
Are There Different Types of Clean Agent Systems?
Yes! Different manufacturers use different proprietary gases to achieve the same effect. As a result, the maintenance protocol we follow varies depending on the type of clean agent system.
