PAFSS Electrical Cabinet Fire Suppression

Electrical Cabinet Fire Suppression

Automatic fixed fire suppression systems for the protection of electrical panels, enclosures and cabinets against fire. These dedicated PAFSS electrical fire suppression systems are certified to LPCB standard LPS 1666 and engineered for use with 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

WHAT DO PAFSS® DLP SYSTEMS PROTECT

This brochure explains how PAFSS LPS 1666 certified fire suppression systems can protect your valuable assets and the range of electrical applications that PAFSS can protect.

PROTECT UP TO FOUR ENCLOSURES WITH ONE SYSTEM

PAFSS systems are able to prevent migration of the fire between cabinets e.g. from Enclosure 1 > 2 > 3 > 4

As electrical enclosures are often situated adjacent to each other and in multiples, this prevention of fire spread is absolutely critical.

Since systems are sized to protect the volume of enclosures only and not the whole room, this means there is a considerable reduction in the overall quantity of extinguishing agent required. This can result in significant cost savings when compared to much larger systems.

Four enclosures each protected by individual PAFSS detection tubing. Each enclosure can be multi-compartment. NOTE: Risk assessment allows for only ONE fire in any ONE enclosure.

VENTILATION AND AIRFLOW

PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems, which utilise 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, are fully certified to LPCB standard LPS1666 with the added provision of being tested and approved for use on enclosures that have either VENTILATION (enclosed or open vents) and / or AIRFLOW (fans). The presence of either determines the system container size, as per the guidance and limits in the system manual.

This provision in PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems also future proofs the performance of the system against maintenance or modifications that introduce further vent areas or fans to the enclosure that is being protected.

UL LISTED DETECTION TUBE

The special detection tubing used in all PAFSS fire suppression systems is UL Listed.

The UL Listing qualifies all Jactone PAFSS detection tube as a ‘Heat-automatic Fire Detectors – Component’, after comprehensive testing in accordance with ANSI / UL 521 – ‘Heat Detectors for Fire Protective Signaling Systems’.
