Fire Suppression Systems
When the subject is fire protection, responsible firms throughout Alabama and Georgia turn to Columbus Fire & Safety. With over 40 years experience, CF & S has designed fire protection systems based on proven technologies for businesses both large and small.
Specializing in designing, specifying, installing and servicing of special hazard fire detection and suppression systems, Columbus Fire & Safety presently has over 1000 systems installed in the Southeastern United States. Here are some of the fire detection and suppression systems we offer
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives. Armed with the right type of fire extinguisher, a property owner can often extinguish or contain a fire before it becomes a major blaze.
Fire Detection & Alarm
Provides for notification and evacuation of personnel as a result of the manual operation of a pull station, the automatic operation of a smoke or heat detector, or the automatic operation of protective equipment (such as a kitchen hood system or clean agent system).
Fire Alarms (Detection) Systems are typically installed in any facility where the existing situation involves a distinct hazard to life or property.
Clean Agent Systems (FM-200 and Inergen)
Unlike other fire protection alternatives, FM-200 and Inergen fire suppression agents won’t damage valuable assets like sensitive computer or medical equipment; it leaves behind no residues, does not deplete stratospheric ozone, and are approved for use in occupied areas.
Clean Agent Systems are typically used in areas such as Data Centers, Medical Diagnostic Centers, Archives/Record Storage, Communication Facilities, etc.
NFPA 12 recognizes two types of CO2 systems. The most common and widely installed is high pressure. The second type is low pressure. The main difference between the two is the manner in which the CO2 is stored.
CO2 fire extinguishing systems are probably the most cost effective choice when protecting equipment within your facility in areas that are not occupied by people. Some typical applications for CO2 systems are turbine generators, flammable liquid storage areas, quench tanks, industrial ovens, and paint spray booths.
AFFF Foam Systems
Aqueous Film-Forming Foams (AFFF) are based on combinations of fluoro-chemical surfactants, hydrocarbon surfactants, and solvents. These agent require a very low energy input to produce a high quality fire fighting foam. Consequently, they can be applied through a wide variety of foam delivery systems.
