Detect and Suppress Explosions in Milliseconds
In a matter of milliseconds, a Fenwal Explosion Suppression System is designed to detect the buildup of pressure in an explosion and discharge an explosion suppressant into the enclosed space before destructive pressure are created.
The World’s Most Extensive Line of Field-Proven Components
Fenwal offers the most extensive line of detectors (including pressure, optical, and thermal sensing detectors), high-rate discharge containers, and state-of-the-art control panels.
Fenwal high-rate discharge extinguishers are rechargeable, spherical containers are filled with the suppressant agent most appropriate for a given application and pressurized with dry nitrogen. The containers are equipped with a three-inch electro-explosive burst.
Over 5,000 Fenwal systems are installed worldwide, limiting the explosion danger of a wide range of materials in an equally wide range of process applications. Don’t guess or gamble.
Do you have a potential explosion lurking in your process? As a rule of thumb, if the liquid can burn, the vapor will explode; and if the solid can burn, the dust will explode.

Explosion prevention systems
ULC Listed Halon and Clean Agent Service Facility
Until it was proscribed by the Montreal Protocol, Halon 1301 was your best choice for a fire-suppression agent. Now, clean agents offer all the performance of Halon without the environmental or substitute system drawbacks in systems that combine active fire protection. The benefits of clean agent systems are that they provide people-safe, environmentally friendly performance.
3M™ Novec™ fire protection fluid is environmentally friendly and ideal for special hazards that are critical to maintaining operation of high-end equipment. Novec™ 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential, the lowest atmospheric lifetime (5 days), and has the greatest margin of safety for use in occupied spaces. Novec™ 1230 fluid quickly extinguishes fire without causing any damage to the product it is protecting and without leaving any residue, hence providing for the fastest possible cleanup.
FM-200 extinguishes fire within seconds of discharge through a combination of chemically based fire inhibition and cooling at the flame front. FM-200 also leaves no residue on any equipment. Recognized by the top independent listing and approval agencies, FM-200 has become the economic, efficient and environmentally safe, clean agent choice around the world.
Kidde-Fenwal Argonite™ is an inert gas mixture of nitrogen and argon. Both substances are naturally occurring and present in the atmosphere. Argonite™ is safer for use in occupied spaces and poses no threat to the environment because it has no ozone depletion potential and no direct global warming potential.
ANSUL® INERGEN® systems protect enclosed areas where there is a need for quick reaction to a fire including environments where people may be present, where fire may strike day or night, and where damage from conventional agents cannot be tolerated. This environment-friendly, people-safe agent boasts zero ozone depletion potential, zero global warming potential, and zero atmospheric lifetime.
Carbon Dioxide CO2
For non-occupied spaces, the original “clean” agent, carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind an agent to damage sensitive equipment. And, because there is no agent to clean up, you’re back in business faster.
For fire hazards found in industrial settings, Kidde IND dry chemical systems provide the flexibility based on the size and configuration of the application. These systems provide automatic or manual operation and detection/alarm/release capabilities. Typical use for spray applications and solvent/fuel storage.
The extensive line of foam products includes premium foam concentrates for both Class A and B fires, proportioning equipment for various system arrangements, and an array of discharge devices to cover your application.
FirePro Canada and Pacific Coast Fire Equipment are excited to introduce the FirePro marine and land line of fire suppression systems and fire alarm systems specifically designed for the smaller vessel (fish boats, workboats, water taxis) and specialized enclosures, computer racks, MCC rooms, electrical cabinets and other smaller enclosure rooms.
Ozone Friendly, Cost Effective, Halon Alternative, and Environmentally Friendly
The extinguishing agent of the future for:
Methods of Fire Fighting
All FirePro fire extinguishing aerosol generators use the latest generation of the stable SBK aerosol forming solid compound (containing no pyrotechnic substances). Upon activation, the solid compound is transformed into a rapidly expanding, highly efficient and highly effective fire extinguishing aerosol, based on potassium salts.
Aerosol Main Characteristics
Generator Main Characteristics
Higher efficiency and effectiveness than other conventional agents:
O.D.P = 0 (ozone depletion potential)
A.L.T = 0 (atmospheric lifetime)
G.W.P = 0 (global warming potential)
Flexible and modular systems
Space and weight saving
Activated electrically, thermally, manually or in combination of any two
Suitable for A, B, C classes of fire
The coolant used is a natural mineral that does not contain pyrotechnic material – there is no danger of blockage of the outlet that can lead to the generator exploding
Subject to negligible maintenance costs compared to that associated with other conventional systems
Its built-in fail-safe activation systems ensures operation of the generators when required, even if everything else fails
The solid compound does not contain pyrotechnic materials, therefore, it is more stable to temperature fluctuations and has a significantly longer operation lifetime

Smoke alarms save lives. A working smoke alarm is required to be installed in every residence in British Columbia. Pacific Coast Fire Equipment offers a broad line of smoke alarms to meet every requirement.
9v Battery Operated | 120V Powered | 10-Year Lithium Battery | Combination Smoke/CO | Wireless
Ionization Smoke Alarms
Ionization smoke alarms generally respond first to fast flaming fires. A flaming fire devours combustibles extremely fast, spreads rapidly, and generates considerable heat with little smoke. Ionization models are best suited for rooms that contain highly combustible materials. These types of materials include:
Photoelectric Smoke Alarms
Photoelectric alarms generally respond first to slow smoldering fires. A smoldering fire generates large amounts of thick, black smoke with little heat and may smolder for hours before bursting into flames.
Photoelectric models are best suited for living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. This is because these rooms often contain large pieces of furniture, such as sofas, chairs, mattresses, countertops, etc., which will burn slowly and create more smoldering smoke than flames. Photoelectric smoke alarms are also less prone to nuisance alarms in the kitchen area than ionization smoke alarms.
Recycling Smoke Alarms
AlarmRecycle is a recycling program used for expired smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Since October 1, 2011, British Columbia residents have been able to drop off their smoke and carbon monoxide alarms for recycling at AlarmRecycle drop-off locations across the province. There is an eco-fee applicable to all new smoke alarms sold that funds the program. Products accepted free of charge at drop-off locations:
Carbon monoxide (CO) alarms
Combination smoke and CO alarms
Smoke alarms are typically disc-shaped and plastic and perform both a smoke detection and alarm sounding function. Accepted products include all stand-alone smoke alarms powered by a battery and/or wired to a building’s electrical system. Common types include ionization, photoelectric and combination ionization/photoelectric smoke alarms.
Carbon Monoxide (CO) Alarms
Program products are “stand alone” CO alarms that perform both a CO detection and alarm sounding function. These units are typically disc or square shaped and plastic.
Combination Smoke and CO Alarms
A “stand alone” unit that performs both detection and alarm functions, and combines the technology of a smoke alarm and a CO alarm.
The program does not accept devices that perform only the detection function and not the alarm function, e.g. a smoke and/or CO detector unit connected to a building-wide monitoring or alarm system. These types of units are typically installed in commercial buildings and are outside the scope of this program. These types of units are defined by the CAN/ULC-s529 standard.
