Special Hazard Systems are required when fire suppression systems that use standard liquid agents would not be appropriate. One situation that might require a specialised hazard control system would be when the room contained equipment that would be damaged by a standard sprinkler system. These active fire systems also may be required in locations where it isn’t possible to install, store or connect the liquid/plumbing required for deluge or sprinkler systems.
Special Hazard systems may also be appropriate where the likely type of fire that could occur would be escalated by using liquid suppression systems, such as oil fires.
First step with Special Hazard Systems is identifying when one is needed. The decision to install alternate suppression starts at design.
These systems need to be calibrated to work effectively so ensure they are installed by experienced professionals.
Whether self-contained or looped into the wider safety systems make sure that your Special Hazard Systems are looped in and that your personnel are trained with their operation.
