What is Foam?
Foam is a collection of air-filled bubbles. Foam is made up of three ingredients; water, foam concentrate and air. Unlike cleaning foams, fire-fighting foam is resistant to fire. Many firefighting foams also contain chemicals like Fluorine, which prevent combustion. Water is mixed with a foam concentrate (proportioned) to form a foam solution. Foam is aerated by forcing foam solution through foam making equipment (i.e. discharge devices).
Tyco Fire & Building Products Foam Products
Today’s technological innovations bring chemical and material fire hazards. Our lines of sprinklers and alarm valves have an excellent record for performance, consistency and dependability. However, many production plants and facilities contain fire hazards that standard automatic sprinklers systems cannot control or extinguish. These are termed “Special Hazards”.
In general a special hazard is classified as an area, process or piece of equipment contained within a facility where conventional methods of fire protection cannot offer adequate safety. Tyco Building Services Products therefore offers a complete range of “Special Hazards” equipment designed to meet the needs of these particular facilities.
Within our range of products we offer Foam Concentrates, Fixed Foam Hardware, Aquamist Nozzles and Control Valves in various materials such as Stainless Steel and Titanium (others available upon request).
Please view our range of equipment for a better understanding of the products to be used in your Special Hazards fire protection systems.
