We offer effective, reliable foam fire suppression systems to help you protect your facility.
Here at Life Safety Inspections, we have been working in the fire safety industry for many years, and we have installed countless fire suppression systems. In our experience, the type of fire suppression system most people are familiar with is the kind that use water sprinklers—and while these systems are effective, they are not the only option available. Instead of sprinklers, our team offers foam fire suppression systems, which use thick foam instead of water alone to put out fires.
In order to burn, a fire needs three things: heat, fuel, and oxygen. These ingredients are often referred to as the “fire triangle.” Standard water sprinklers tackle the first point of the triangle, heat—the water cools down the flames until they no longer have enough energy to burn. Foam fire suppression systems, on the other hand, are designed to hit all three points of the triangle.
The foam covers the surface of the fuel, separating it from the oxygen it needs to keep burning. Then, the water in the foam cools the fuel down just like a sprinkler system does. Foam fire suppression systems are ideal for facilities where chemical or grease fires are a concern, and our team offers the superior systems and installation services you need to get the best results.
