Boat & Marine Fire Suppression

Boat & Marine Fire Suppression

Protecting What Matters Most for Marine Craft

Out in open water, you're on your own. A boat and marine fire suppression system that offers superior performance is essential for keeping your vessel afloat, and passengers alive.

A fast, hot class B fire can have dire consequences for your pleasure craft.  Even docked at the marina, your boat needs a clean, reliable fire suppression system.  Since the engine rooms and computer control rooms of larger boats are sometimes occupied, your system must be safe for humans. Should CO2 discharge while a person is in one of these rooms, the result can be fatal. 

Many transatlantic vessels are as large as floating buildings several stories high. The proven performance of a fire suppression system is critical to freighters, to protect the control tower, computer rooms and massive engine room. Some vessels even have hospitals onboard that need to be protected.

Traditional fire extinguishing agents such as water and dry chemicals can cause damage to high-value equipment and contribute to downtime. The DuPont family of fire extinguishants provides an exceptional alternative to Halon. They are safe for people, electronically nonconductive, noncorrosive and free of residue. Since DuPont is a global provider, vessels can refill a discharged system at any port of call, anywhere in the world.

Protecting your investment and the lives of passengers and crew members is what matters most--to you and to us. Choose the boat and marine fire suppression system that offers you the protection you need.
