Direct automatic fixed fire suppression systems for electrical enclosures and electrical cabinets.

Provision is contained within the LPS1666 standard to confirm system fire extinguishing performance for installations that have (within limits) both :

Enclosed or Open Vents and Forced and Natural Airflow

Jactone has a PAFSS system certified to LPS1666 with allowance for BOTH. It is essential to discuss this issue when inquiring about the certification status of a particular system.

The Problem

Electrical enclosures / cabinets can be found, often in multiple numbers, in more or less every workplace, factory, warehouse or general commercial site.

These small enclosures, including those for distribution, control, communication and servers, can present a particular problem where faulty equipment, damaged wiring or improper installation can increase the risk of fire.

Fires in such enclosures can be difficult to identify, often until it is too late to take action, especially in well sealed enclosures where there would be limited egress of combustible products or heat.

The PAFSS Solution

Our system offers peace of mind for customers looking to specify a fully tested, approved and certified solution for fire protection of their electrical enclosures.

Jactone PAFSS Direct Low Pressure (DLP) fixed fire suppression systems have been specifically designed to protect small enclosures in accordance with Loss Prevention Standard, LPS 1666. “Requirements and test procedures for the LPCB approval of direct low pressure (DLP) application fixed fire suppression systems”.

PAFSS DLP systems provide protection inside the enclosure and discharge at the heart of the fire, extinguishing quickly and preventing the fire from spreading to neighbouring enclosures / equipment and the wider building. This can significantly reduce the risk of injury to personnel and losses caused by equipment down time and operational disruption.
