ANSUL Foam Fire Protection Systems: What Are They and What Are the Benefits?

Traditional, water-based fire suppression systems are common in many business, but if your business involves handling and processing flammable liquids then it is wise to invest in a more robust fire suppression system to keep your employees and your space safe from fires.

In these situations we recommend installing an ANSUL foam-based fire protection system solutions. These systems are designed to suppress fires in large, industrial spaces and are equipped with foam suppression which can quickly extinguish fires caused by flammable liquids of products.

What Are ANSUL Fire Protection Systems?

ANSUL was founded in 1915, and initially produced chemical compounds which were used in the refrigeration industry. However, after developing and releasing a new kind of chemical extinguisher system which proved to be superior to existing industrial fire suppression systems in 1946, they shifted focus to develop products for commercial and industrial fire suppression.

Currently, ANSUL is one of the leading companies in developing and manufacturing automatic foam fire suppression systems for airplane hangars, restaurants, and more.

ANSUL fire suppression systems use a fire-fighting agent called Aqueous Film-Forming Foams (AFFF), which are a combination of solvents, hydrocarbon, and fluorochemical surfactants which suppress any oxygen which may be present in the air, suppressing a fire quickly and effectively.

One of the biggest benefits to using these systems is that they feature a modular design, which makes it easy to add onto your existing system as your fire protection needs grow and change. The technicians at Bison Fire Protection can assist you with:
