The Natural Choice in Fire Protection

Argonite fire extinguishing system was developed as a viable, environmentally friendly alternative to Halon. Argonite is an inert gas blend consisting of a 50:50 mixture of two gases found naturally in the atmosphere – Argon and Nitrogen. By using natural elements, Argonite poses no environmental risk due to ozone depletion and global warming.

High Performance

Argonite extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen concentration within an enclosure to between 13% and 10%, a level acceptable to human exposure over short periods – thus eliminating the fire quickly and effectively without affecting personnel.

Argonite systems are ideally suited to the protection of fixed equipment and plant. They are particularly applicable for high value risks where fires can have devastating consequences way beyond the cost of damage and lost production.

Tested and approved by major international authorities and classification bodies, Argonite is effective against fires in almost all combustible materials and flammable liquids. Argonite is particularly suitable for use in areas where the use of water, foam or powder would be unacceptable.
