All current forms of fire detection and extinguishing
rely on one simple fact - a fire must have already started.
No matter how good the fire protection is, some damage
will occur. The ultimate form of fire protection is
thus to prevent fires from happening in the first place,
which is how Oxyreduct differs from all other traditional
An open fire cannot occur or sustain itself if there
is a lack of oxygen in the atmosphere. Inert gas extinguishing
systems have used this principle successfully for many
years, but crucially there must have already been a
fire for the extinguishant to be released.
Oxyreduct employs innovative technology that continuously
reduces the oxygen level in a room (to around 15% depending
on infrastructure variables) by adding nitrogen to the
air. The oxygen is reduced to a level in which most
combustibles do not inflame and an open fire is impossible.
Importantly, people can enter the area of risk for up
to six hours requiring only a 30-minute break outside
the protected area.
Typical applications that have already been protected
include: IT Areas, Comms rooms, Archives, Museums, Cold
and Freezer storage, Warehousing and Plant rooms.
