Fire protection in psychiatry

Should a fire start, avoid chaos with Inergen fire protection

In psychiatry, the likelihood of arson appears to be on the increase. Since evacuation is often both tricky and resource-intensive, and access routes for emergency services difficult, considerable demands are placed on emergency planning and any fire extinguishing systems. With Inergen, a robust and effective extinguishing system can be established, ensuring that fires are not allowed to develop and resultant large costs and downtime are avoided.

With Inergen you get an effective solution that makes it possible to maintain calm and control over the situation.

How Inergen works in psychiatry

An Inergen system is designed to respond quickly and automatically to any fire such as may occur in a psychiatric ward or residence. As soon as a fire is registered, the system is activated. Via nozzles which are located in the ceiling, the Inergen spreads throughout the room and the oxygen level is lowered sufficiently to extinguish the fire completely. Although the oxygen level is reduced, it remains safe for staff and patients to stay on the premises.

    How it works

    How Inergen systems work in a data center

    The Inergen® fire suppression system is an automated solution designed to swiftly and effectively extinguish fires. It employs an aspiration system, which incorporates highly sensitive fire detection technology capable of identifying fires in their initial stages. Once a fire is detected, Inergen® is promptly released into the room. Reducing the oxygen level just enough to stop combustion, without posing any risk of harm to individuals present.
