Marine Fire Suppression Systems

A Triangle Fire installed and serviced marine fire suppression system is designed to protect marine vessels of various hazards. Fires in marine vessels typically start in four types of locations: machinery spaces, cargo holds, paint lockers and galley areas. In each location, the presence of flammable liquids, high pressure fuel lines, hot lubrication oils, solvents and paints can be ignited by electrical shorts, overheated equipment, hot turbochargers and exhaust pipes. We have an experienced staff capable of providing you with top quality products by respected manufacturers.



The following manufacturers offer quality marine fire suppression systems:

Ansul Marine Galley R102 Fire Suppression System

ANSUL R-102 Fire Suppression Systems discharge ANSULEX® Liquid Fire Suppressant, quickly knocking down flames and cooling hot surfaces, while generating a tough vapor securing blanket that helps prevent reflash. With a nearly neutral pH, ANSUL R-102 systems are exceptionally friendly to cooking equipment.

ANSUL R-102 systems are offered in two basic designs: appliance-specific, in which nozzles are aimed at specific hazard areas of each appliance; and overlapping, where nozzles are arranged to overlap and provide a “fire-free zone” throughout a group of appliances. Depending on the kitchen line-up, your trained ANSUL distributor can design, install and service a system that offers the ultimate protection for specific facilities.






Ansul Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression Systems

The original "clean" agent, carbon dioxide suppresses fire without leaving behind an agent to damage sensitive equipment. And because there is no agent to clean up, you’re back in business faster. To provide the most economical system arrangement without sacrificing performance, we offer both High and Low pressure systems including the exclusive ANSUL® "Mini-Bulk" tank technology.

ANSUL High Pressure Carbon Dioxide Systems are especially effective for non-occupied hazards such as semiconductor wet benches, control rooms and paint lines. Whatever the application, from cylinder to nozzle, each system is custom-designed for your specific fire hazards.



High pressure systems use individual storage cylinders — from 35 lb. (16 kg) to 120 lb. (54 kg) capacity each — that can be manifolded together for rapid simultaneous discharge. Cylinder valves can be opened automatically or manually, and either locally or remotely using electric, pneumatic or mechanical valve actuators.

FES System

An engineered system utilizing a fixed nozzle agent distribution network, the system is designed and installed in accordance with the IMO FSS CODE (SOLAS, IMO MSC/ Circ.1267 "Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems").

When properly designed, the HFC-227ea fire extinguishant system will suppress surface burning fire in Class A, B, and C hazards.

80% of HFC-227ea fire extinguishant fire fighting effectiveness is achieved through heat absorption and 20% through direct chemical means (action of the fluorine radical on the chain reaction of a flame.

Complete suppression using HFC-227ea fire extinguishant has the following advantages:

  • The low concentration of HFC-227ea fire extinguishant required means less visual obscurity and minimal risk to personnel.
  • The small quantity of agent discharged minimizes over-pressurization of the protected area.
  • Maximum safety for personnel due to low toxicity.
  • The ability to prevent re-ignition as long as concentration levels are maintained.

FES System listings and approvals:

  • USCG
  • RINA Type Approval - IMO MSC/ Circ.848/1267
  • MED - Marine Equipment Directive
  • MCA
