A fire suppression system works to put fires out, and therefore must move suppression products throughout high-risk areas. This is done through a network of pipes that lead to areas of high risks, such as over areas where grease fires could occur. The system should be installed by a professional; it is not advisable for anyone to install a system like this on their own.
How do fire suppression systems work?
A fire suppression system works to put out fires as quickly as possible. When they detect any level of heat or smoke above set limits, the system will send the control unit a message. This message tells the control unit to then send the fire suppressant through pipe network. This leads to valve heads opening above the fire, and spraying the suppressant over the area to put out the fire.
What are the types of fire?
Four types of fire types.
1. Class A relates to combustible materials like paper and wood.
2. Class B relates to flammable liquids such as gas or grease.
3. Class C relates to electrical-specific risks.
4. Class D relates to combustible metals.
