The extinguishing principle utilised by Inergen is called oxygen displacement.
The purpose of oxygen displacement is to reduce the oxygen level in the protected area so that the fire cannot “breathe”.
Inergen consists solely of gases that occur naturally in the atmosphere and is completely harmless to humans.
- It extinguishes fire quickly – typically in just 40 seconds.
- Extinguishes fire completely – no re-ignition later.
- Harmless to people and equipment.
- Prevents secondary damage.
