Paint Booth / Industrial Suppression
We provide installation, inspection and maintenance to all types of industrial suppression systems.
Most commonly seen in open face and vehicle paint spray booths, but can be installed to protect other types of hazards. Industrial suppression systems must be inspected and tested semi-annually to make sure the equipment operates as intended.
Services we provide:
- Provide and install new pre-engineered Amerex or Badger industrial fire suppression systems.
- Perform semi-annual testing and inspection of dry chemical suppression systems, as per NFPA-17.
- Provide a detailed inspection report noting deficiencies and recommendations.
- Tag equipment and provide certification if applicable.
Badger Industry Guard fire suppression system:
For open face spray booths, vehicle spray booths and mixing rooms, Revolution Fire Protection recommends the installation of a Badger Industry Guard dry chemical fire suppression system. The system utilizes a dry chemical extinguishing agent consisting of either ABC or BC powder.
Badger Industry Guard advantages:
- ULC listed and FM approved.
- Pre-engineered system which is flexible in design.
- Conforms with NFPA 17 – “Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems”.
- Conforms with NFPA 33 – “Spray Application Using Flammable & Combustible Materials”.
- System is acceptable to the local Authority Having Jurisdiction for Edmonton & Area.
- Can be used in any application where a dedicated water supply is not available.
- System is completely mechanical and can operate without electricity.
Dry chemical fire suppression system components:
A typical paint booth fire suppression system consists of the following parts:
- Control Head – The main controller that activates the suppression system, connected to bells, pull stations and detectors.
- Detectors – Heat activated detection devices that automatically detect a fire, can be mechanical or electronic type.
- Pull Station – A pull station placed near a means of egress for manually activating the suppression system.
- Nozzles – Nozzles distribute the dry chemical in a range of spray patterns, most models have a blow-off cap to protect the nozzle.
- Distribution Piping – Black steel piping carries the suppression agent to the nozzles in the work area, plenum/pit and exhaust duct.
- Time Delay – For vehicle spray booths, a mechanical time delay is provided to allow time for fan wind down, and employee evacuation.
- Alarm Bell – Will sound upon system activation, alerting workers nearby to clear the area.
- Agent Cylinders – Pressurized agent cylinders available in a number of sizes, consisting of ABC or BC dry chemical.
