Fire suppression systems are designed to combat or suppress a fire by either stopping it or slowing its progress. There are four classes of systems, each class having several levels of fire suppression capacities and capabilities. Class A includes the least effective system in terms of fire suppression. Class B offers the most effective system and Class C offers the least amount of fire suppressant capacity but still an effective solution. Class D is the most powerful system available, capable of controlling even very large fires.

What are the different types of fire suppression systems? There are two primary fire suppression technologies: wet and dry. Wet fire suppression involves use of pressurized hoses, such as water hoses, to transport water from one part of the facility to another. Dry fire suppression uses the same techniques of water transportation, but instead of using water, dry suppression uses non-pressure sources to extinguish fire. Wet and dry suppression technologies can be combined in order to provide the best solution for your particular facility.

How do you know which type of system will best meet your needs? Each type of fire suppression solution has advantages and disadvantages. Wet suppression systems require no clean up because all the smoke and soot is expelled the same way. However, some damage to building structures may occur during fire evacuations; especially if fire escapes from the lower floors.

Why is fire suppression necessary? Fire suppression systems protect human life and reduce property damage. In the case of fire break outs or major structure fires, professional fire department response is mandatory. Professional suppression of fire can stop the spread of flames and smoke, minimize personal injury, and prevent secondary fires. In the case of small contained fires, fire suppression can also prevent further damage by reducing the opportunity for combustion products to escape and cause additional damage.

You may find it helpful to check out a website that provides answers to commonly asked questions about fire suppression systems. There you can read about the types of systems that are available, how they work and how to select the best system for your home or business. In addition, you will also be able to find out more information about the fire safety codes in your area and what is required by law before you can install a fire suppression system in your building. If you need additional information about fire extinguishers and systems, call your local fire department or visit a website that offers emergency services at no cost.

In addition to reading about the different types of suppression systems available, you should also consider hiring an experienced technician to install a system if one is not already provided by your company or if it is not installed properly. It is imperative that a properly installed system will not only protect your business from fire, but also reduce the risk of damage to your property by making it impossible for fire to reach any other areas of your building. There are a number of companies that provide these services. Make sure to call the first one that you come across to get an estimate on the cost of installing a fire suppression system in your business and to learn more about the types of systems that are available.
