Clean Agent & Special Hazard Systems
Sprinkler systems and other common fire protection systems protect your people and your building, but not necessarily the assets within your building. Special hazard fire suppression systems are warranted when your assets need to be preserved and where the cost of water damage would be excessive. Special hazards systems are typically required in facilities that contain equipment that’s exceptionally costly, irreplaceable assets (e.g., museum artwork), or electronics.
These systems are designed to detect and suppress incipient fires, to protect people, to minimize business disruptions, and to limit losses of assets and information. These systems also require uniquely trained and certified technicians for design, installation, service, repairs, and maintenance.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression Systems
Dry chemical suppression systems release a dry chemical powder that smothers the area, thereby removing the oxygen and extinguishing the fire. They are used in environments that have unique hazards and demands, such as construction, mining, and industrial settings.
ABCO Fire Protection has been protecting people and their properties and assets in the Pittsburgh area for over 50 years. We offer dry chemical suppression systems and services for gas stations, spray paint booths, and vehicles. Our certified experts know that every detail matters and your system needs to be specifically designed for its purpose.
Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems
Clean agent suppression systems protect irreplaceable assets and the people around them without the collateral damage often associated with sprinkler systems. Fast-acting fire suppression, minimal cleanup and chemical residue, people-safe, and customization options are among the advantages clean agent suppression systems have over traditional water sprinkler systems.

Unlike traditional sprinkler systems, which are designed to merely “control” a fire – water-mist protection systems are designed to quickly and automatically detect and suppress incipient fires or high heat conditions. The advantages of water-mist systems include the ability to suppress a fire in mere seconds, ultra-fire water droplets that reach obscured flames, minimal-to-no water damage, and the deployment of just 1/10th the water of a traditional sprinkler system.
