Clean Agent Fire Suppression

Minimax Logo

American Fire has partnered with Minimax®, a world-wide industry leader in various suppression systems with a huge presence in the European market. Our partnership with Minimax® USA products allows us to provide clients the best option for clean agent suppression systems such as cost-saving high pressure systems using Novec® 1230 suppression agent and the more traditional HFC-227ea agent. If you need options, Minimax® delivers!

Early Warning Smoke & Gas Detection

VESDA by Xtralis Logo

American Fire has also partnered with Xtralis®, the industry leader in early warning smoke detection. Xtralis® offers a full line of gas detection products that can be integrated into VESDA® units. When partnered with clean agent suppression, this technology provides a fail-safe initiating system that ensures proper suppression application. Xtralis® continues to improve the technology they originated in the 1980s to provide many options for applications in data centers to industrial environments where no other detectors can function.

Aerosol Extinguishing System

Hochiki Logo

Hochiki America provides an innovative alternative to traditional clean agent suppression. American Fire is a proud endorser of their Hochiki America FirePro® Xtinguish line, which provides a cost-effective alternative using solid potassium to produce an aerosol used in fire suppression. We use this system to implement small aerosol generators to replace clean agent cylinders and pipe networks to provide a simple and clean installation.

Hand-held Aerosol Suppression

FirePro Logo

In addition to stationary generators, FirePro® offers a hand-held unit perfect for first-responders and occupants alike. American Fire recommends FirePro® hand-held fire extinguishing aerosol units as the best option for immediate fire suppression.
