Gas suppression systems are fixed fire suppression systems supplying an alternate extinguishing agent. Rather than the standard water sprinkler systems, these active fire systems use powder or gas to smother the fire. Usually installed to protect sensitive equipment or locations where standard water extinguishing systems could cause damage, or where the likely fire occurrences would be fire types that water would make worse.
With a more specialised system, it is important to ascertain if these suppression tools are the right call for your location and as many of them are not automated in the same way sprinkler systems are it is important that anyone operating is adequately trained in compliance with fire and safety training.

There are a variety of options on the market of gas suppression systems using specifically designed gas to achieve certain results, such as leaving no residue or allowing for use in occupied spaces.
Naturally occurring inert gases, such as Argonite, supply an option for removing oxygen from burning spaces thereby starving the fire. These systems are also often used for their lower environmental impact.
CO2 systems are popular gas suppression systems due to their historical reliability and inexpensive upkeep compared to other gas systems. However CO2 systems are not appropriate for occupied spaces.
