Specialist and Automatic Fire Extinguishers

Different types of environment require alternatives to portable fire extinguishers. Some areas may not be manned or left empty for long periods or areas that are hidden and difficult to access. These types of environment would usually require automatic extinguishers. The automatic extinguishers work by sensing the heat via a small glass bulb. Once this breaks the extinguisher releases its content thus suppressing the fire. This is ideal for engine rooms and busy
kitchen
areas.

Automatic extinguishers come in two main guises, powder and FE-36 clean agent. The powder is your normal ABC multi-purpose powder whereas the FE-36 clean agent is a gas. This has replaced the old Halon extinguishers which were banned in the late 1990’s due to their content which was not ozone friendly and contained CFC’s.
The powder automatic fire extinguishers come in 5 different sizes from a small 1kg to a larger 12kg. Although these will leave a residue upon release they are much cheaper than the FE-36 clean agent.
The FE-36 clean agent comes in 2 sizes, a small 1kg and a larger 4kg. These are expensive but leave no mess due to them being a gas, and do get into those smaller vents etc. so are ideal for small server rooms and engine rooms.
