ansul-co2-fire-suppression-systemsOne of the best environmentally friendly solutions on the market today for fire suppression is the CO2 (carbon dioxide) systems. The CO2 Fire Suppression System are one of many solutions that have taken the place of the Halon 1301 systems that deplete the ozone layer of the earth. One of the best features of the CO2 systems is that after you have a fire and the systems is triggered, the CO2 has a fast expansion rate and there is no clean up of chemicals. The CO2 Fire Suppression System gas dissipates safely into the atmosphere with no adverse effects to the environment or human and animals. If the fire sprinkler system was a water based system you would have a lot of clean up of the area, including flood /water damage remediation and possible mold remediation. The CO2 Fire Suppression System on the market today have three classifications.
