FM-200® systems combine the benefits of clean agent systems and active fire protection with people-safe, environmentally friendly performance. Clean FM-200 discharges as a gas, leaving no residue to damage sensitive equipment or require costly clean-up and is designed to fully discharge into a protected area within 10 seconds, enabling the system to extinguish a fire before it has an opportunity to grow or cause significant damage. This results in less damage, fewer repair costs and reduced downtime.
FM-200 allows virtually immediate return to “business as usual” without the interruption of a costly clean up and the expense of damage to assets from suppressant residue. FM-200 is People-Safe and non-toxic when used in compliance with NFPA Standard 2001. FM-200 does not impair breathing or obscure vision in an emergency situation—providing an added measure of safety for personnel. As with many clean agent suppressants, FM-200 has a zero Ozone Depletion Potential, a low atmospheric lifetime, and a speedy suppression performance.
FM-200 not only offers low environmental impact but also reduces the potentially devastating atmospheric pollutants of an uncontrolled fire. FM-200 has been tested and found to be effective on the widest possible range of Class A (wood, paper and cloth), Class B (flammable liquids) and Class C (electrical) fuels and is used in more than 70 countries around the world.
