Fire Suppression for Special Hazards: Unique Tools for Uncommon Situations

Every fire is unique. Those in high-hazard facilities, for example, require a different kind of suppression system to ensure they can be extinguished quickly and effectively. These special systems are more than a simple sprinkler system and require the design, installation, service and repair expertise of an industry leader like Western States Fire Protection.

We understand the equipment you are protecting or the specific hazards within your facilities need fast reacting suppression systems to stop fire as quickly as possible to limit damage. Our team knows the different special hazard fire suppression and can provide you with the best options for your needs.

Western States Fire Protection specializes in the foam, water deluge, FM200 and CO2 systems to name a few.

Foam and Water Deluge Systems

Activated by smoke or heat detection systems, deluge equipment releases a dousing flood of water or foam in an instant through an open-sprinkler, nozzle or foam generator, utilizing an unpressurized piping system. Deluge systems offer fast and safe fire protection and are specifically designed for use in:

  • High-hazard facilities
  • Power plants
  • Aircraft hangars
  • Chemical facilities

Chemical and CO2 Suppression Systems

As specialists in the design and installation of dry chemical, FM-200™ and CO2 systems, we provide safe, efficient and effective chemical and non-conductive means of extinguishing fires.
