INERGEN® protects human lives
INERGEN is a mixture of nitrogen, argon and carbon dioxide gases and has
been specially developed to provide fire protection as a Halon 1301
replacement. INERGEN® extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen level in
a room to below 15%, the point at which most combustibles will no longer
burn. Simultaneously the carbon dioxide in INERGEN® stimulates the
uptake of oxygen by the human body, so protecting anyone who might be
trapped in the fire area from the effects of the lowered oxygen levels.
INERGEN® has been medically evaluated and approved by leading
authorities around the world. All of them have accepted INERGEN® as
being safe for use in “normally occupied areas”. INERGEN® is the first
Halon replacement to have been fully tested on humans.
With thousands of people having been exposed to INERGEN® with no
ill-effect during test discharges, it has an excellent track record of
safety in operation.
- Escape routes
are not obscured.
INERGEN® is stored in gaseous form. It therefore does not produce fog
when the gas is released into the room.
- No toxic
Because INERGEN® is a mixture of naturally occurring gases, it does not
form decomposition products in a fire.
INERGEN ® protects property
retention time within the room.
of the greatest failings of Halon systems is the speed with which the
Halon gas escapes from the room after discharge. The mixture
specification of INERGEN® overcomes this problem by bringing the
relative density of INERGEN® close to that of air. The result is
outstanding hold time performance for INERGEN.
- No corrosive
INERGEN® does not chemically interfere with the fire and hence does not
form any corrosive decomposition products in the fire.
- Proven Fire
INERGEN® has an impressive track record of fire fighting around the
world with millions of pounds worth of equipment and production saved by
the fast acting capability of INERGEN®.
