WHAT IS A FIRE SUPPRESSION SYSTEM?
Have you ever wondered how a fire suppression system works? A fire requires the chemical reaction of heat, oxygen, and fuel to burn. In response to a fire, fire suppression systems work by disrupting one or more of the elements involved in that chemical reaction. This helps to incapacitate the ability of the fire to grow. There are many different types of fire suppression systems to choose from depending on your specific fire prevention needs:
- Kitchen fire suppression systems
- Foam fire suppression systems
- Aircraft hangar fire suppression systems
- And more!
Fire suppression systems can be very effective in improving the fire safety of buildings of various sizes. Before choosing a fire suppression system for your business, however, you may want to consult with our fire safety experts to find out exactly what fire suppression system will meet your specific needs. Once you have undergone a fire suppression system installation, the next step is to keep on top of regular, periodic inspections to ensure its peak performance and functionality.

Fire Suppression System Installation
Installing a new fire suppression system means understanding what sort of fire suppression system is appropriate — which in turn means knowing your options. Modern fire suppression systems usually fall into one of five major categories:
- FM-200 gas systems, which react with fire to extinguish it
- Chemical foam systems with foam-dispensing nozzles installed over known potential fire sources, primarily used in commercial kitchens
- Water mist systems, which are a less destructive alternative to traditional sprinklers
- Foam deluge systems, which drown an area in foam to kill a fire as soon as possible
- Pneumatic heat detection tube systems, used for targeted fire suppression in smaller confines where more reliable or simple systems may be unreasonable
Kauffman will help you to identify likely threats, which installations make the most sense from an efficacy, upkeep, and installation cost view, and then install and test your system in a painless, efficient manner. Our experienced technicians ensure an effective, customer-friendly experience from beginning to end, with as little interruption for your property as possible.
Fire Suppression System Maintenance
Thorough maintenance of your fire suppression system is crucial if you want to avoid serious damage. Kauffman follows a thorough process to check every component of your system: every gauge, valve, alarm, fitting, agent piping, etc. We achieve this by following a strict maintenance process. A sample process, with variations for a given system, might look like this:
- Check initiating devices
- Check time delays for discharge
- Make sure the release activates
- Test manual release and abort functions
- Check agent containers
- Verify all discharge sources are oriented correctly
- Test enclosure integrity
- Test batteries
- Test signal
- Verify as-built drawing and flow calculations
Before leaving, your Kauffman Co. technician will go through and verify every component is unchanged, every tamper seal intact, every pressure gauge appropriate, and every maintenance certificate up to date. We know you can’t afford to have a problem in your suppression system during a fire.
