What is FM200 Fire Suppression?

FM200 is made out of Heptafluoropropane, a compound of carbon, fluorine and hydrogen (CF3CHFCF3). It is one of the most common non water-based fire suppressants and it extinguishes a fire primarily through heat absorption, leaving no reside behind. FM200 works well in areas where sensitive equipment is present. FM200 is stored in cylinders as a liquid but when it discharges it vaporizes into a gaseous state.

Why Choose FM200?

FM200 is a fast reacting, cost effective fire suppressant. Some benefits of choosing FM200 include:

  • It is electrically non-conductive
  • It’s safe to use around humans
  • It leaves behind no residue
  • It minimizes downtime after a fire
  • It works well in applications where water is not an option
  • It has a fast discharge time
  • It’s environmentally friendly
  • It can be used in a wide range of applications

Common FM200 Applications

If you have an area of your building that has sensitive equipment, you may want to install an FM200 system. Many facilities that use FM200 are:

  • Data Centers
  • Computer Rooms
  • Museums
  • Historical Archives
  • Art Galleries
  • Record Storage Facilities

Due to the fact that FM200 leaves behind no residue, it will not harm artwork, records, computers, or other valuables in your building. Fire sprinklers would not be the best option in these types of areas because the water from the sprinklers could cause damage to your assets.
