Our Special Hazard Fire Protection Systems in the HAWAIIAN ISLANDS



Special hazards are everywhere and are very wide ranging. A special hazard can be a building, an area, a room or a piece of equipment. Some examples of places where you would find special hazards include: data centers, telecommunications, power generation, manufacturing and testing facilities, machinery spaces, healthcare facilities and more. These areas are exceptionally challenging from a fire protection standpoint. The fire alarm and sprinkler systems we see every day may not be appropriate as the only line of defense. That’s where special hazard fire protection offers unique solutions.

NOVEC 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is an environmentally acceptable, people-compatible, clean agent for vital facilities with a wide range of hazards. This top-of-the-line solution suppresses the fire by removing its heat energy and interrupting the combustion process.

We also offer FM 200, a colorless fire suppression tool that is waterless and discharged in just 10 seconds, immediately smothering the fire. Thousands are installed worldwide, and we can easily bring FM 200 to your workplace too so you can be secure in having a system that is:

  • An Environmentally Clean Agent
  • Fast Acting and Efficient Extinguishments
  • Compatible With Sensitive Equipment
  • Recognized by the Top Listing and Approval Agencies
  • Safe for Occupied Spaces


Carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind any residues after discharge thus avoiding damage to sensitive equipment. With no agent clean up, there is less downtime after an incident. When properly designed, the carbon dioxide system will suppress fire in Class A, B, and C hazards by displacing the air containing oxygen that supports combustion. Typical hazards protected by carbon dioxide systems include printing presses, vaults, open pits, dip tanks, spray booths, ovens, engine rooms, coating machines, process equipment, hoods and ducts, flammable gas or liquid storage areas, and generators.

The High Pressure Carbon Dioxide System is especially effective for non-occupied hazards. Personnel occupying areas protected by carbon dioxide systems must be evacuated prior to system discharge. Therefore, discharge time delays and alarms are mandatory for occupied hazards. Whatever the application, from cylinder to nozzle, each system can be custom-designed for specific fire hazards. High pressure systems use individual storage cylinders—from 35 lb. (16 kg) to 120 lb. (54 kg) capacity each—that can be manifolded together for rapid simultaneous discharge. Cylinder valves can be opened automatically or manually and either locally or remotely using electric, pneumatic or mechanical valve actuators.

Benefits of Our High-Pressure CO2 System

  • Fast – CO2 is a 3-dimensional clean agent.
  • Efficient – CO2 is colorless and odorless. It exists as a gas in the earth's atmosphere and is one of the byproducts of combustion.
  • Non-Conductive – CO2 is electrically non-conductive and 3-dimensional, allowing use for a wide variety of special applications.
  • Adaptive – CO2 is effective on a wide range of flammable and combustible materials in both surface and deep-seated fires.
  • Recognized – CO2 is recognized by the top independent listing and approval agencies.
