RTEK specialists in fire suppression solutions based in Cape Town, South Africa. In addition to fire detection, our technicians design, install and maintain advanced fire suppression technology tailored to your suppression system requirements.
Foam suppression systems are designed to prevent the spread of fires in most highly flammable environments such as commercial kitchens, airports, and manufacturing plants.
The foam technology expands rapidly to cover large areas that need to be filled quickly. Foam technology removes oxygen, the fire’s source, and also prevents combustion.
These fire suppressants are designed to reduce heat. Basically the agents are very similar to refrigerants. Due to the nature of the fire suppression technique, these refrigerants only require a small concentration. This means less cylinders and lower pressures. Oxygen level are also not significantly reduced which also makes them safe to use within occupied spaces.
