Inert Gas Fire Suppression System

03-Inert-Gas-System - Copy.png


Inert gas fire suppression systems reduce the amount of oxygen present in a server room or data centre to between 12-15% to suppress a fire but without reducing amount of oxygen level below life maintaining levels.

In populated areas, people can breathe Inert Gas blends at extinguishing concentrations below 52% for very brief periods of time during egress from the space. There are no toxicological factors associated with the use of Inert gases, as they will not decompose or produce any by-products when exposed to a flame.

Inert gas systems use either IG-55, IG-541 or IG-100 inert agents and can achieve a lower total cost of ownership than traditional fire suppression systems in terms of installation, maintenance and refill costs following a system discharge.

IG-55: The perfect Combination

  • Blend of nitrogen and argon at a ration of 50:50. It combine effective action against fire with the flexibility required for any functional need and hazard configuration.

IG-100: Eco-Friendly & Versatile

  • Use 100% nitrogen gas as an extinguishing agent for total flooding of occupied and unoccupied rooms. This gas is the main component of the atmosphere (78%) and is usually found as N2, a very stable and non-reactive molecule.

IG-541: The Perfect Combination

  • Blend 3 types of gases which is 40% argon, 52% nitrogen and 8% carbon dioxide. It is highly effective and multipurpose extinguishing system.

How Do Inert Gas Fire Systems Work?​

Inert Gas Fire Suppression Systems work by removing enough Oxygen in the room to extinguish the fire, but leave enough for us to be able to survive in. Inert gases are colourless and odourless, safe for people, the environment and cause no damage to property or data.
