The number of people that are trained in fire safety is far less than even the few that are trained and certified in CPR. This means that when a fire breaks out, there aren't too many people that know exactly what chemicals will put out what fires. Fire suppression systems typically refer to packages of various fire suppression equipment that automatically disperse inert gasses and/or chemicals to extinguish fires upon their detection. The gasses and chemicals used in the fire suppression systems usually extinguish the fires by one of four methods. One, they reduce and contain the spread of the fuel source. Two, they reduce the amount of heat in the area so that the fire cannot thrive. Three, they reduce the oxygen in the area so that the fire cannot breathe or four, they use a combination of the previously mentioned methods.
Considering the use of technology in today's workplace environments, one can quickly come to understand why the use of fire suppression systems can be of such value, especially to businesses. Companies spend billions every year on computer related business products. Servers, routers, backup units, storage area network systems and more. All of these products are not only sensitive to fire/heat damage, but extremely susceptible to water damage as well. If a fire breaks out, the last thing you want to have to use in order to extinguish it is water. Toss water into electronics and you have a dead piece of equipment, but this is exactly what most companies face right now if they do not have the ability to appropriately put out fires in the workplace.
Every industry benefits from the use of fire suppression systems. From the hotel & restaurant industries, to data centres, to industrial processing plants and even on to marine product manufacturers. The larger the project, the greater the need for fire suppression. Also though, the larger the project, the greater the need for a fire suppression implementer that knows the business and can install the right system for you, without fail.
You need an experienced fire suppression implementer that has years in the field. There are companies that have 20 plus years experience under their belts and such companies are usually the ones that can be trusted. They've seen the various scenarios, had time to evaluate the use of all the products and been in business long enough to see what works and what does not. Look for experience when selecting an implementer so you can rest assured that your protected.
