Pretty much every jurisdiction will require a fire suppression system installed in your C1D1 Extraction Facility. You’re dealing with flammable solvents, so it makes sense that you have that added layer of safety, for your building, employees, and neighbors.
With that said, you may be asking yourself, “Why does that HAL Extraction Booth not come standard with a Fire Suppression System?”
The short and simple answer is that HAL Extraction doesn’t want to sell you something that you don’t need. If you are among the 90% of our customers that already have a water-based sprinkler system installed in your industrial space, then you can tap into that system for use with the HAL Extraction Booth for a fraction of the cost of installing a stand-alone automatic fire suppression system.
For those of you that do not have a water-based sprinkler system in your space, HAL Extraction can coordinate the stand-alone automatic fire suppression system installation needed to for your facility to be approved by your AHJ. If you know a local installer of a UL Listed automatic fire suppression system and want to coordinate installation yourself, that great! We are still willing to provide any help and relevant documents that the installer may need or answer any questions that may arise.
