Gielle have carried out the door-fan test in conformance with NFPA 2001 and ISO 14520 for engine rooms, computer rooms, tape storage, battery and UPS rooms, communications rooms, control rooms and turbine rooms protected by FM200® , Novec 1230®, Inergen®, Argonite® and other clean agent systems.
Cold-fire wetting agent
Liquid foam concentrate, non-toxic and biodegradable Cold Fire® is the only patented, concentrated alcohol-resistant microbial firefighting agent on the market today. Once the fire is out or the spill is covered with finished foam, the microbes begin remediating all AFFF, hydrocarbon and alcohol wastes.
Cold Fire is designed for both class B hydrocarbon and polar solvent fuels. On class B hydrocarbon fuels, it creates an aqueous film that effectively shuts down the fire. Cold Fire is U/L-162 listed and CE approval, granted under the standard EN 1568-3.
