    SPECIAL HAZARDS


    Not all hazards are the same, but all fires do one thing – destroy. So, what do you when you have those special hazards requiring a different level of protection? Call the team at Fox Fire Safety. We can assess the situation and design a system specific to your needs, whether it calls for Clean Agent, Water, AFFF Foam, or Carbon Dioxide. We are knowledgeable and fully equipped to streamline the installation, inspection, or service process and keep you fully informed about your system and it’s needed maintenance. Check out the different system lines below:

    Clean Agent:

    When you want protection for valuable assets or expensive equipment, Fox Fire turns to Clean Agent suppression systems. These systems are customizable to virtually any space, big or small, and provide a faster, more effective version of protection. The gas is safe, non-toxic, and requires zero effort for clean-up. It’s also harmless to sensitive electrical equipment and the preferred protection method for companies with server rooms and important computer driven machines.

    Carbon Dioxide:

    Carbon Dioxide suppression systems are perfect for protecting a single machine or multiple machines in a manufacturing setting. They provide early detection, quick action, and are more cost effective than a dry powder system. Zero cleanup! There are high and low-pressure options available depending on the hazards present.

    AFFF Foam:

    AFFF Foam or Water Mist systems are great for high hazard facilities with flammable liquids like gas and oil. They utilize heat or smoke detection and are also very flexible when it comes to customization. These systems are most commonly found protecting aviation hangars, power plants, tanks farms, and chemical facilities.

    **All systems are subject to the NFPA mandated 6-month inspection, but testing and maintenance requirements differ. Please call a Fox Fire Safety representative today for the appropriate maintenance schedules. All inspectors and inspections are regulated and follow the appropriate NFPA fire standards.


    SPRINKLERS


    When a fire strikes, it can go undetected until it’s too late. An automatic wet or dry sprinkler provides instantaneous protection for you, your employees, and your business. Sprinkler systems need to conform to NFPA 25 standards in order to be compliant, as well as local fire codes, local building codes, and insurance requirements too. A properly maintained and continuously inspection sprinkler can also bring about possible benefits in the form of reduced insurance premiums and the potential for reduced fire damages in the future. Fox Fire Safety has the resources to offer a complete service package when it comes to sprinkler inspections, repairs, testing, monitoring, and installation – including additional components like hydrants, backflows, fire pumps, hoses and hose standpipes. Give us a call today so we can get you started.

    **All inspectors and inspections are regulated and follow NFPA 25. Please call a Fox Fire Safety representative to discuss the testing and maintenance schedule for your sprinkler.


    ALARMS


    Fire alarms are an instant signaling system that save lives and as such, they need to be inspected frequently and properly maintained. Fox Fire Safety understands how important they truly are and has the resources to have all brands of alarms inspected, tested, monitored, and serviced. We know a few seconds could make the difference during a crisis and want to make sure those precious seconds are available when needed the most. Give us a call today and a certified team can go over what to expect during an inspection or the specific testing schedule mandated by NFPA and local fire codes. Reports detailing the location of all manual actuation and signaling devices will be available after each inspection along with a deficiency report so you are kept informed about your fire alarm.

    **All inspectors and inspections are regulated and follow NFPA 72. Please call a Fox Fire Safety representative to discuss the testing and maintenance schedule for your sprinkler.
