Halon System Replacement
Serving Tennessee, Arkansas & Mississippi
Do you store valuable assets at your business location? From electronic equipment and machinery to delicate merchandise and paper files, storing such assets means you have unique fire suppression needs. After all, if you have to trade fire and smoke damage for water damage, what’s the point?
Perhaps that’s why you had a Halon fire suppression system installed decades back. While this fire extinguishing agent is able to douse a blaze without water, it also expels chemicals that greatly deplete the ozone. That’s why, if your commercial building has a Halon system installed, it’s time to look into having it replaced.
State Systems Inc. offers full replacement of Halon fire suppression systems throughout the Mid-South, including Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi. To schedule a visit to your building or request a quote, call us at 866-308-5701.
What Is Halon?
Short for halogenated hydrocarbon, Halon is a liquefied gas comprised of carbon, fluorine, chlorine and bromine. It puts out fires by chemically interrupting the combustion chain reaction needed to keep a flame burning.
Problems with Halon Fire Suppression
Halon was originally praised for its ability to put out a fire without water, thereby providing a fire suppression solution for rooms with delicate equipment or supplies. However, since it was discovered that Halon is extremely environmentally unfriendly, cleaner alternatives have become available.
No new Halon has been produced since 1994 when the Clean Air Act went into effect. This makes it difficult to find replacement Halon to recharge your system.
Important Facts about Halon Systems
If your property still has a Halon system installed, here’s what you need to know:
- There’s no deadline for having your Halon system replaced. You’re not legally required to remove or replace your Halon system at any time, but you’re strongly encouraged to do so.
- You have the option to recharge your Halon system with recycled Halon, but continued supply depletion means recharging costs are only going up.
- Whether your Halon system is charged or empty, now’s the time to start looking into an alternative fire suppression system for your business.
