What is a clean agent?

Clean agents extinguish fires using an electrically nonconductive gas. This makes them uniquely suited to protecting sensitive electronic equipment and other high-value assets present in your building. Clean agent fire suppression systems are ideal for extinguishing fires in small spaces such as cabinets or the inside of equipment as well as for large-scale applications such as semiconductor facilities or data centers. Clean agents do not leave behind a residue, eliminating the need for time consuming clean up.
