Special Extinguishing Systems (e.g. Clean Agent, Gaseous Systems, Fixed Aerosol, Kitchen Hood)

Design, project management, and contract administration for cost-effective special extinguishing systems that match hazards with appropriate protection.
Particular hazards may contribute to situations in which water either may not be an effective extinguishing medium or where automatic sprinklers may need to be supplemented with other types of fire suppression systems.

Under these circumstances, special extinguishing systems are needed, potentially including:

  • Gaseous Fire Extinguishing Systems
  • Dry Chemical Fire Extinguishing Systems
  • Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems
  • Condensed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing Systems
  • Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems

    5-Year Hazard Assessment Program for Nuclear Facilities

    N293- and N393-compliant plants and facilities are required to revise and reaffirm their fire protection assessments (FPAs) at least once every five years. This process includes updating the Fire Hazard Assessments (FHAs) and Fire Safe Shutdown Analyses (FSSA).

    These assessments often demand a substantial investment in finances, time, and resources.

    Our 5-year hazard assessment programs for nuclear facilities allow for early schedule planning, reduced financial commitments, and optimal resource utilization.
