Improved fire safety

Johnson Controls has introduced an innovative 70 bar gaseous fire suppression system, enabling higher fill densities at an increased pressure – reducing footprint, installation costs and service time.

Miguel Coll, Product Director for Engineered Systems, Johnson Controls, explained the launch aims to set new standards in fire protection. “An extension of our reliable SAPPHIRE range, the new system will allow greater design flexibility in high value assets – while offering the same proven fast acting fire suppression,” he said. The solution is suitable for use in power plants, telecommunications, aviation, transport, IT, medical facilities and museums. In addition, SAPPHIRE PLUS is UL Listed, FM approved and EN compliant, allowing complete confidence in its fire suppression capability.

To coincide with the launch of the new system, Johnson Controls is also introducing an interactive tool, to demonstrate how SAPPHIRE PLUS can bring benefits to both large and small high value areas. Users can apply the tool to help plan the best fire suppression solution for the environment.
