Gielle FM200 systems are based on many years experience in the design, supply, installation and commissioning of gaseous fire fighting systems. During this time Halons have provided industry and commerce with a unique and versatile extinguishant to respond to most fire protection needs. The Montereal Protocol presented the fire protection industry with a most demanding challenge – to find a replacement for Halons. Gielle evaluated a large number of candidate agents over several years before selecting FM200.
FM200 is a colourless gas which is liquified under pressure for storage. Like Halon 1301 it has a low toxicity level and is superpressurised with Nitrogen to 24.8bar (360psi). It rapidly extinguishes most commonly found fires through a combination of chemical and physical mechanisms.
