FirePASS is a fire prevention and suppression system that works by limiting one of the components of combustion: Oxygen. It uses Hypoxic (oxygen reduction) technology to provide proactive and permanent fire protection.
The resulting air is breathable low oxygen air – no nitrogen injection. There is no damage by water, foam or extinguishing agents which is a major disadvantage of other firefighting and prevention equipment
- To prevent fire from occurring
- To protect the building and occupants in the event of a fire outbreak with no form of interruption
- To prevent damages
- Absolute safety for human beings
- Difficulty in preventing fire spread in the event of fire outbreak
- Unable to retain access to protected areas at any time during a fire outbreak
- FirePASS, used in suppression mode, operates in a fashion similar to other inert gas total flooding systems with the goal being to reduce the O2 content of the protected space to the requisite combustion inhibition level
- The FirePASS-Suppression system has the ability to extinguish all class A, class B, and class C fires while offering added defense against re-ignition even in deep-seated fires. This is all done with a level of respiratory safety unmatched by other systems.
- After the initial flame knockdown, FirePASS-S has the unique ability to continue flooding the environment for as long as necessary to combat re-ignition and allow for the completion of all recovery operations (20min-2hrs). Other inert gas systems cannot safely offer the same discharge times without creating extremely dangerous O2 levels.
- Proactive and permanent fire protection
- Breathable low oxygen air – no nitrogen injection
- FirePASS is the only solution that can protect extremely large spaces
- No excessive piping, no nozzles, no pressurized cylinders, no leaking
- No false discharges, no discharge failures, no loss of work time, no interruptions of working processes, no consequential costs
- No disruption of working processes, no consequential costs, no closing of unusable areas due to fire damages, clean-up or repair
