From the first drafts of building plans to an active, occupied space, a solid fire protection plan is essential for maintaining the safety and security of a building and its occupants. Architects and facility managers must consider not only the effects of a fire but also the aftermath. Water or chemical extinguishants can cause up to millions of dollars in damage to high-value equipment and contribute to downtime. Having a reliable, safe and effective fire suppression system is essential for protecting the space where business is conducted--as well as the people who work there. That's why we've worked to develop a full range of DuPont clean agent fire extinguishants. They are safe for people, electrically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue. Providing the proper tools for an inclusive fire protection plan is what matters most--to you and to us.
