Building codes and other requirements often dictate that chemical storage buildings must have some sort of fire suppression system. To meet these requirements, we offer water sprinkler systems and dry chemical systems as standard options which can be installed by our personnel or a specialist at the location. These systems have audible and visual alarms and can be fitted with a variety of fire suppression accessories.
The ability to quickly control chemical fires increases safety and peace of mind when storing hazardous materials. Another point of emphasis when extinguishing fires is minimizing inventory loss. Our effective and compliant fire suppression systems and accessories help save lives and costly materials in the event of an emergency.
Types of Fire Suppression
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression
U.S. Chemical offers automatic dry chemical fire suppression systems. These pre-engineered systems meet NFPA 17 and protect against A, B, and C type fire hazards.
The systems feature fusible links designed to melt at a specific temperature to release tension on the detection cable. This will cause the mechanical controls on the tank to release the agent through a distribution piping network located on the ceiling.
