FIREPRO® and OTHER AEROSOLS
• FirePro is approved to AS4487-2013 the current standard for Land Based Systems. AS5062-2016 which is the standard for Mobile Plant. AMSA Approved for Marine Applications.
• Safety Integrity Level Certified.
• FirePro does not use pyrotechnic solid aerosol compound (Class 4.1 flam. solid). FirePro can be air-freighted at a cheaper cost and the process has less restrictions.  
• FirePro cooling material is natural – alumina based (others use materials which produce harmful toxic chemicals, e. g., NOx, NH3, HCN).
• FirePro in certified to High Voltage environments up to 75,000v, other aerosols have LOWER limits.
• FirePro in passed Explosive Environment tests with UL. Others are restricted from this application.
• FirePro can be used in A Class Fires. Others are restricted from this application.
• FirePro uses robust activator, non pyrotechnic. Competitor pyrotechnic material: instability temperature rise, decay of with time, reduced life time.
• FirePro is environmentally friendly.
• Safe for humans, H & S issues, non toxic according to international institutions.
• FirePro has a certified life of 15 years (though can go longer).
• FirePro has self activation temperature of 300°C, competition – 230°C.
FIREPRO® v OTHER GASES
INERT GASES (e.g., Inergen, Argonite, etc)

HALOCARBONS (e.g. FM200, HFC227ea)
Extinguish by reducing the oxygen level in a room to below 15% (the point at which most combustibles will no longer burn) • Hazard due to depleted oxygen • Area to be protected needs to be pressure relieved or can cause damage.

1 Unit FirePro = 40 Units
FM-200 works by physically cooling the fire at the molecular level • Extinguish fire by heat absorption and some chemical reaction effect • Stored in hi-pressure cylinders as a liquid, and discharged as a gas • At high temperature gives off HF, CO – highly toxic.

1 Unit FirePro = 6 – 7.5 Units
FLUORINATED KETONES (e. g., Novec 1230) CO2
Novec 1230 interferes with the combustion process, stopping a fire in its pre-combustion stage, it disrupts a fire by absorbing the heat • Liquid which rapidly gasifies • Thermal decomposition produces HF & COF2 – toxic.

1 Unit FirePro = 6 – 9 Units
CO2 extinguishes fire by reducing the concentration of oxygen in the air to the point where combustion stops • CO2 is 1.5 times heavier than air and will settle in the lower areas – this can be life threatening due to the oxygen displacement • Highly pressurised – Not Suitable for A Class Fires • Toxic to humans.
1 Unit FirePro = 15.5 Units
COMPARISON OF INSTALLATION OF GAS v FIREPRO
• Installation of Gaseous Systems require Licensed Personnel, this is Federal Legislation – costly and time consuming reporting 
• FirePro is a system that has separate components acting together – failure of a component will not cause failure of the system.
  Compared to pressurised systems where any component failure will normally result in complete failure of the system.
• FirePro is electrically monitored – installers and operators will always be aware of any system faults.
  Compared to pressurised systems where any piping or valves may be faulty and the operator unaware – system NOT operational.
• Normally require Fan test to determine pressure capacity of risk.
• Activation pressure of Gases normally requires structural preparation of risk to cope with the pressure.
• Longer installation times and higher installation costs. Valves, piping, robust supports, brackets.
• Higher maintenance requirements. Re-filling requires removal of tanks and specialised filling equipment.
• More space required, and significant weight differences.
• Restrictions in certain applications due to nature of product and impractical installation.
COMPARISON OF INSTALLATION OF FIREPRO v FOAM Systems on Mobile Plant
• Chemical issues related to Foam and new regulations related to Fluorine Free Foam concentrates.
• More space required, and significant weight differences. No Cylinder required to be mounted on Machine.
• Longer installation times and higher installation costs – piping, brackets, nozzles.
• Higher maintenance. Agent replaced regularly. Pressure test on Cylinders. Valves, piping, robust brackets and other supports, Nozzles.
• FirePro is a system that has separate components acting together – failure of a component will not cause failure of the system.
  Compared to pressurised systems where any component failure will normally result in complete failure of the system.
• FirePro is electrically monitored – installers and operators will always be aware of any system faults.

We recommend that you look at the FirePro movies to see the various applications, the setup of equipment when installed, and also the way that FirePro discharges.
PRODUCT WARRANTY
FirePro® products are built to exacting standards of engineering and manufacturing and are rigidly inspected before leaving our premises. FirePro® warrants those components manufactured by FirePro® to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of three (3) years from the date of purchase. During the warranty period, any defective part will be repaired or replaced. This warranty is valid if:
• the system has been installed by a suitably trained and CERTIFIED technician in strict accordance with the Installation, and Maintenance Manual.
• the customer records verify that the system has been serviced in strict accordance with the aforementioned manual

This warranty does not cover normal use and wear of any part, defects resulting from modification, alteration, misuse, exposure to corrosive conditions or extremely high temperatures. In no event shall FirePro® be liable for incidental or consequential damages.
