FirExting®

The FirExting® fire extinguishing system from WAGNER is designed to reliably extinguish a fire, and also to suppress the fire in its incipient stage. The system is based on extinguishing with gases, wherby fires can be fought effectively. Direct damage can thus be considerably reduced or even prevented. In areas with a high concentration of valuable property, with highly sensitive materials to be protected, or where a high fire load predominates, the use of gas extinguishing systems is extremely advantageous. With FireExting® comprehensive protection from fire damage and consequential damage is possible. Although conventional water-based or foam-based extinguishing systems are well suited for containing and extinguishing fires due to their high heat absorption capacity, these systems cause often more harm than good; especially in places where irreplaceable exhibits or cultural assets or sensitive data are stored. WAGNER has developed FirExting® for this reason. The system extinguishes in two different ways: When extinguishing by means of displacing oxygen, FirExting® works with the inert gases nitrogen, argon, IG-541 or carbon monoxide, depending on the area of application and the corresponding system design. In the process, the oxygen content within a room will be heavily reduced and the combustion process prevented. Since these gases do not react chemically with other materials, the extinguishing process is entirely residue-free. The extinguishing agent is stocked in 80 and 140 l steel cylinders with a pressure of 300 bar. An alternative is the chemical extinguishing gas NovecTM 1230. After releasing the gas into the extinguishing area, a gaseous mixture highly heat absorbent will be formed. As a result, the required energy will be withdrawn and the fire will choke rapidly. After a fire has been detected, e.g. by a WAGNER TITANUS® smoke detector, the area to be protected will be flooded with the extinguishing gas; this counts for both gases for the inert and for the chemical gases. Only this way a complete choking of the fire can be ensured. Gas extinguishing systems using the inert gases Argon, nitrogen or IG-541 release the gas with very high pressure causing extreme noise. Noise sensitive equipment like e.g. modern hard disks may get damaged by the pressure and / or by the noise. A sound pressure level of up to 130 dB(A) may result in a loss of data. Therefore, wherever a reduced sound pressure level is required, WAGNER also installs their particularly developed SILENT sound absorber. The Langenhagen-based company takes a similar approach to unwanted pressure peaks, which arise when extinguishing with inert gases. By using an impulse valve the gas is being kept at a constant pressure during the entire extinguishing process. By utilizing this so-called soft flooding procedure the pressure relief surface will be reduced considerably. Rooms in which pressure relief flaps are difficult to implement due to structural restrictions will benefit from this, in particular. In addition, with automatic pressure regulation the effect of the extinguishing agent will be optimised. An individual and customised analysis of the application area will determine the most suitable system. With WAGNER, all components interact to form a single perfectly functioning system.
