How Inergen works

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.

That’s why you should choose Inergen

  • It extinguishes fire quickly – typically in just 40 seconds.
  • Extinguishes fire completely – no re-ignition later.
  • Harmless to people and equipment.
  • Prevents secondary damage.

Inergen. Reliable and sustainable fire extinguishing within 40 seconds.

Where can you use Inergen?

Fire can have fatal consequences for any business.

The cost in terms of money and resources can rapidly escalate, even if you have insurance that covers fire.

At the same time, a fire often means having to shut down your business for an extended period of time. This costs both in loss of revenue and reputation.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you choose a fire extinguishing system with Inergen, you can forget sleepless nights.
