CHURCHES FIRE & SECURITY INSTALL, MAINTAIN AND SERVICE GAS SUPPRESSION SYSTEMS TO FIGHT FIRES WHEN WATER CANNOT BE USED
What is gas suppression?
Gas suppression systems extinguish fires by removing the oxygen content to below 15% where most materials do not burn. They are activated by a smoke detection system that detects the early presence of smoke.
A high-quality gas suppression system means that water is not always essential to contain fires. Churches Fire & Security have over two decades of experience in fire safety. We are experts in advising which form of fire suppression is best to use in each unique situation.

Types of gas suppression
There are few different gases that we use in these systems: Novec 1230 (clean agent); Inergen (Inert gas IG541), a blend of nitrogen, argon and CO2; Argonite (inert gas IG55), a blend of argon and nitrogen.
The benefits of gas suppression
Gas suppression systems are able to combat fires automatically in sensitive areas where it is best to avoid using water. They protect life and can prevent costly water damage to equipment, saving you money. They work by releasing clean agent or inert gases into the building at the point of smoke detection.
when would you need gas suppression?
Gas suppression is ideally suited in server rooms where other forms of firefighting may cause water damage or loss of data, or in electrical rooms where water would pose a risk to life. This means that your employees and assets are safe in all circumstances.
