Special Hazard Fire Suppression for West Michigan Businesses

No matter what type of business you operate in Michigan, you need adequate fire protection to keep your building, merchandise, and people safe. This is relatively straightforward if your building contains normal fire hazards and everyday objects; a fire sprinkler system and fire extinguishers.

However, things are different if you operate a business with special hazards. When traditional fire sprinklers won’t do, let Fire Pros help you select an appropriate special hazard suppression system for your needs.

Contact us online or call us at (800)968-2871 today to learn more about the services we provide for special hazard applications for West Michigan businesses.

What is a Special Hazard Fire Suppression?

The purpose of special hazard fire suppression is to extinguish fires while preserving the integrity of assets in the area. These assets may be unique or irreplaceable, of exceptionally high value, or critical to the function of the building.

Special hazard suppression is also suitable for businesses where unique fires start, including electrical fires, grease fires, or flammable liquid fires that only worsen if you throw water on them.

Clearly, special hazard applications require a fire extinguishing method besides water. Suitable alternatives include:

  • FM-200
  • Novec 1230
  • Halon 1301
  • N2 nitrogen
  • Carbon dioxide
  • Wet foam
  • Dry chemicals
  • Water mist

These special hazard extinguishing agents minimize damage to facilities and assets, require little to no clean-up, and reduce downtime for your business. They are also fast-acting and highly effective against fires that can ignite in special hazard applications. Most are safe to use with personnel in the room and don’t leave residue behind after discharge.

What Types of Businesses Need Fire Special Hazard Fire Suppression?

Special hazard applications can constitute an entire building, an isolated room, or a single piece of equipment. You might need special hazard fire suppression or an industrial special system inspection if you need to protect important paper documents, collectibles, and archives, computers, and electronics, or industrial equipment.

Specific businesses that are considered special hazard applications include:

  • Data and IT centers
  • Computer server rooms
  • Museums and hospitals
  • Aircraft hangars and airports
  • Hazardous material storage areas
  • Chemical and power plants

Our Services

A special hazard fire suppression system should be able to act quickly in response to fire, knock back the flames effectively, protect people, and mitigate property damage. Uniquely trained and qualified technicians must set up and service your system if you hope to accomplish all this. Choose Fire Pros if you need any of the following:

Inspection & Maintenance

Once installed, you can’t simply ignore your special hazard suppression system. Routine commercial and industrial special system inspection and maintenance are necessary to comply with standards set by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), state and local fire codes, and your insurance company. At the completion of each service visit, we’ll provide you with a detailed inspection report for your records.

Repair & Refill

If your special hazard suppression system activates in response to a fire, it’s critical that you refill it as soon as possible to restore it to fully operational status. We refill contained gas systems and perform repairs as well.

CO2 Cylinder Test

Special Hazard Fire Suppression FAQs

What are common causes of fires?

The most common causes of commercial fires are cooking equipment, heating equipment, electrical and lighting equipment, smoking materials, and intentional fires. By knowing what may cause a commercial fire, your business can take proper precautions, such as special hazard suppression systems, to prevent damage to your property.

What is a special hazard area?

It depends – your entire building or a specific room could be considered a special hazard area if extinguishing a fire with water would do more harm than good. This includes any area containing systems of high value, buildings storing flammable liquids or irreplaceable artifacts, and rooms where the equipment inside generates substantial revenue.

What do special hazard fire suppression do?

With a properly designed and installed special hazard suppression system, you can expect your equipment to:

  • Quickly detect heat and fire in its early stages
  • Suppress fires in areas where water isn’t an appropriate extinguishing agent
  • Protect the people in your building
  • Limit the loss of property and data
