This is how Inergen works in buildings worthy of preservation

Inergen extinguishes a fire completely without water and chemicals. When a detector registers a fire, Inergen is released via a series of nozzles and the oxygen level in the room is reduced enough to extinguish the fire. At the same time, it is safe for humans to remain in the room. An Inergen system can be installed with great flexibility and discretion, so that it doesn’t interfere with the aesthetic expression and experience for the visitors. Nozzles can, e.g. be placed under furniture, in walls or ceilings and painted over. The piping can also be concealed completely out of the way and the cylinder bank can be placed in a separate room.
