Enhancing Fire Safety with Advanced Systems Fire Fighting Gas Systems

Selecting the appropriate fire fighting gas is crucial in securing assets and facilities. With a notable presence in the industry, Advanced Systems takes excellent satisfaction in unveiling its experience in Egypt and KSA, solidifying its dedication to providing exceptional firefighting solutions. In this article, we will explore the types of fire fighting gases.

Fire Fighting Gas Systems Overview

Firefighting gases are substances used to suppress or extinguish fires. They are typically stored in pressurized containers and released into an area affected by fire to displace oxygen or cool down the fire. Different types of these gases have varying mechanisms of action and are used in different scenarios.

Types of Fire Fighting Gas

The following are some commonly used gases:

CO2 System Fire Fighting

One of the most widely used fire gas systems is the CO2 system. Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a colorless, odorless gas displacing oxygen when released into a fire-affected area, smothering the flames. This gas is particularly effective for suppressing Class B and Class C fires involving flammable liquids and electrical equipment. Advanced Systems provides state-of-the-art CO2 system firefighting solutions tailored to the specific needs of their clients.


Halon gases (such as Halon 1211 and Halon 1301) were widely used to suppress fires effectively. However, their production has been phased out due to their ozone-depleting properties. Halon gases work by interrupting the chemical reaction of fire.

Clean Agents

They are electrically non-conductive, leave no residue, and have a low global warming potential. Clean agents work by absorbing heat and interrupting the combustion process. These agents include:

  • FM 200 fire fighting: This clean agent gas has gained popularity due to its exceptional extinguishing capabilities and environmentally friendly nature. FM 200 rapidly suppresses fires by absorbing heat energy and interrupting combustion. It is highly effective for safeguarding critical assets like data centers, control rooms, and valuable equipment. Advanced Systems proudly offers FM 200 firefighting solutions, ensuring optimal fire suppression in sensitive environments.
  • NOVEC fire fighting: This advanced extinguishing agent combines exceptional fire suppression capabilities with minimal environmental impact. Novec gas removes heat from the fire, resulting in rapid cooling and extinguishment. Its low toxicity and zero residue protect valuable assets like museums, libraries, and archives. Advanced Systems brings the power of Novec firefighting to Egypt and KSA, providing localized support to regional clients.

Inert Gases

Inert gases, such as nitrogen and argon, play a crucial role as firefighting agents in specific situations. Their effectiveness lies in reducing oxygen concentration within the affected area, a mechanism akin to carbon dioxide. Particularly advantageous in environments with valuable or sensitive equipment, inert gases offer a distinct advantage: they suppress fires without causing any damage or leaving residue behind. This makes them a preferred and reliable choice for targeted fire suppression in areas where the preservation of equipment integrity is paramount.

Water Mist

Water mist systems use fine water droplets to suppress fires. The mist helps cool down the fire and displace oxygen. Water mist systems are commonly used in areas where water damage needs to be minimized, such as server rooms or museums.

It’s important to note that the selection of the appropriate fire fighting gas system depends on the type of fire, the environment, and the potential risks associated with using a particular agent. Firefighting professionals and experts follow specific guidelines and regulations to determine the most suitable system for each scenario.
