Why a Special Hazard System?


No matter the extent of your project we have the experience and knowledge to provide you with a wide range of fire protection services. Our technicians are fire protection specialists acquiring competent skills with installing, maintaining and servicing your special hazard system.

What is a Special Hazard System? A special hazard fire suppression system is typically used in areas where the facilities or assets need to be preserved or water damage would be costly. Special hazard environments demand only the most advanced, reliable fire suppression systems Special hazard systems are designed to detect and extinguish dangerous situations in locations where standard fire suppression systems are not sufficient.

A&D technicians have the experience and expertise to service, inspect and maintain your specific suppression system.  Our objective is to provide top- quality fire protection systems that meet all your fire protection needs and requirements.  Fire Protection prevents extensive property damage, business interruptions, and most important, save lives.

How do I maintain my Special Hazard System?

At a minimum, all systems should be thoroughly inspected, tested and documented for proper operation on an annual basis.  This maintenance should be completed by trained and qualified personnel.  Our team of fire protection specialists have years of experience maintaining, servicing and installing special hazard systems.


Benefits of Special Hazard Systems 

  • Designed to limit the loss of assets, information and high-value irreplaceable assets.
  • Designed to quickly detect a fire or high heat condition.
  • Designed to suppress fires when sprinklers are not appropriate as the first and only means of protection.
  • Designed to protect people and prevent business interruption.
  • Require specially trained and qualified personnel to design, install, service and maintain these systems.
  • All systems should be thoroughly inspected, tested and documented for proper operation.

Whether you are looking to protect a small IT room, a record storage facility, or even a large substation, our experienced team will design and provide the special hazard system to protect your valuable product. From FM 200, Novec 1230, High/ Low-pressure CO2, and various INERGEN systems, A&D can provide the ideal solution to your exact suppression needs.

FM 200

FM-200 is a clean, gaseous agent containing no particles or oily residues. The FM- 200 Fire Suppression System is an engineered system in a protected area, typical areas that can be protected by an FM-200 system are:

  • Bank Vaults
  • Data Centers
  • Electronic Data Processing
  • Studios Communication Centers
  • Control Rooms
  • Test Laboratories
  • Flammable Liquid Storage

80% of FM-200 firefighting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical means (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame).

Complete suppression using FM-200 has the following advantages:

  • The low concentration of FM-200 required means less visual obscurity and minimal risk to personnel.
  • The small quantity of agent discharged minimizes over pressurization of the protected area.

Novec 1230

Novec 1230 extinguishes the fire in seconds before it even starts and long before water-based systems discharge.  Novec 1230 fire protection fluid extinguishes fire primarily by removing heat from the fire. It is also electrically non-conductive.

High/Low-pressure CO2

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless, and chemically inert gas that is both readily available and electrically non-conductive. It extinguishes fire primarily by lowering the level of oxygen that supports combustion in a protected area. This mechanism of fire suppression makes CO2 suppression systems highly effective, requiring minimal clean-up, but should be used in normally unoccupied hazard locations or otherwise avoided by personnel when discharged.

INERGEN Systems-

INERGEN is a highly effective fire suppression system for extinguishing fire & preventing re-ignition with no risk to people or damage to equipment if engineered and installed by a qualified fire suppression systems installation company. Contact A&D for a no-obligation consultation, we are here to answer your questions and help determine what is the best system for your needs.
