Scutum’s inert gas fire suppression systems, such as IG55 or IG541, are colourless, odourless, non corrosive and electrically non-conductive blends with a density approximately the same as that of air.
They are highly effective fire suppression systems with no risk to electronic equipment, property or life. Inert gas systems extinguish fire mainly through reducing oxygen concentrations within the fire risk to the point where combustion is impossible, however levels of oxygen remain sufficient to sustain human life.
Excellent visibility is maintained during discharge, allowing efficient evacuation of the risk. Composed of naturally occurring gases, these inert gasses have no negative effects on the ozone layer or global warming.
Ideal for the protection of data centres, archives, museums, laboratories and any other hazard including valuable or unique property and any other electrical installation that may present a fire hazard.
