Code minimum fire protection systems, such as fire sprinklers, provide protection for your personnel and building structure. But, when it comes to high-value assets such as equipment, data, or irreplaceable items, water can be just as damaging as fire.

For speed in suppressing fires, reducing damages, saving on floor space and allowing visibility, Clean Agent Fire Suppression is the clear choice. Our Clean Agent Fire Protection Systems, using any one of several extinguishing agents, leave no residue and do not require costly clean-up, unlike sprinklers and other fire protection systems. And it discharges in 10 seconds or less, extinguishing a fire quickly and effectively.

Clean Agent Fire Suppression Systems are ideal in applications ranging from telecommunications and data processing to switch gear rooms, military applications and cell sites to high-tech medical applications. FM-200, ECARO, & Novec 1230 fire suppression are also widely accepted replacements for Halon 1301.

With a DSI designed fire protection system you can count on speed and efficiency in your fire protection, and much more...

Total Flooding of Class-A and Class-C Hazards
Clean Agent can be used in applications where people are normally present (normally occupied spaces) for Class-A and Class-C fire hazards. Examples of applications where Clean Agent would be an excellent choice for a total flood fire suppression system where people are present include: computer rooms, telecommunication switch stations and facilities, semiconductor manufacturing facilities, data processing centers, clean rooms, industrial process control rooms, museums, libraries, and historical sites.

Total Flooding of Class-B Hazards
Clean Agent can also be used to suppress Class-B fire hazards for areas that are not normally occupied or that have limited access. Examples of these applications include: pleasure craft engine compartments, petrochemical facilities, chemical storage rooms, paint lockers, and other applications with hydrocarbon-based materials.


Halon 1301 has been utilized over several decades as the preferred agent in automatic fire suppression systems for the protection of critical business assets such as computer rooms, record storage areas, electrical equipment, and other similiar applications. The production of Halon 1301 has ceased due to its effect on the environment. In addition, the European Community has banned the use of Halon products after December 31, 2003. Although a similar ban is not in effect in the United States, the need to replace Halon 1301 for the protection of the environment is a priority.

The Fike ECARO System, containing Chemours (formerly Dupont) FE-25, provides end-users with the easiest and most cost effective drop-in solution to their Halon replacement needs. Due to the physical properties of FE-25 and the superior performance of Fike's fast-acting rupture valve assembly, ECARO can often work with your existing Halon pipe network. Just replace the nozzles and containers to transform your Halon 1301 fire protection system with ECARO

Novec 1230

The innovative Novec 1230 fluid is non-corrosive and non-conductive, which means it does not damage high value assets such as delicate electronics. It is also harmless to people's health and to the environment. The Novec 1230 fluid has zero ozone depletion potential, a short atmospheric lifetime of 3 - 5 days and a global warming potential of 1, making it exempt from restrictions of so-called “greenhouse gases” imposed by the Kyoto Protocol. This makes Novec 1230 fluid an innovative, clean, and future-proof solution.


The most popular Clean Agent, FM-200™ is accepted and respected worldwide, with a history of protecting some of the world's most critical and irreplaceable assets. In fact, FM-200™ is in use in over one hundred thousand applications, in more than 70 nations.


Since its European introduction in 2003, Fike's innovative ProInert has become widely accepted as one of the best performing, most cost-effective, and environmentally friendly inert gas fire extinguishing systems. Now that same technology is available in the United States, and other parts of the world requiring UL and FM approval.

Fike's ProInert offers all the benefits of other inert gas systems with several significant design improvements - enhancements that not only mean a superior product, but savings to your bottom line!

Most inert gas systems discharge from the nozzle into the protected space with a high surge flow rate, creating a hazardous pressure peak. These systems use pressure reducers further down the pipe network in order to mitigate safety issues, but also require both high-pressure and low-pressure piping.

ProInert Is Better

Because of its unique patented valve assembly, the ProInert agent enters the protected room within the industry required 60 seconds, but at a steady flow rate -- preventing destructive turbulence from occurring. This constant flow rate means you can use small-diameter, low pressure (and less expensive) piping from the inert gas container, all the way to the nozzle. And the necessary venting area is much smaller - reducing installation costs by as much as 60% on venting hardware.

ProInert's patented constant flow rate valve translates into a system that is not only safer for your staff and facility, but also saves you money.

Other ProInert Inert Gas System Benefits:

  • Zero Ozone Depletion for maximum environmentalism
  • Superior design allows for convenient long pipe runs
  • Constant flow rate reduces hazardous pressure peaks
  • Globally Approved
  • Typically requires less floor space than other inert gas systems
  • USGBC LEED Recognized
