How does P.A.F.S.S work?
PAFSS stands for Pneumatically Actuated Fire Suppression System. These systems are designed specifically to protect electrical enclosures and are certified to Loss Prevention Standard LPS 1666.
PAFSS systems comprise of a cylinder of clean agent extinguishant that is either fixed to the wall or external surface of the electrical enclosure. A detection tube is connected to the valve of the cylinder and runs through the area to be protected and is sited in close proximity to risk areas where fires are most likely to start. In the unfortunate event that a fire starts the detection tube will be melted by the flame which then releases the clean agent directly onto the site of the fire. As the extinguishant continues to be released the extinguishant will fill the enclosure suppressing any other fire that may be present.
