DuPont, a leading innovation and market-driven science company, is presenting its leading range of clean agent fire suppressants during the 14th edition of Intersec, the largest security, fire and rescue and safety and health expo in the Middle East running from January 15 to 17, 2012 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The event provides an excellent platform for showcasing DuPont’s state-of-the-art solutions and promoting greater regional awareness on fire protection.
Since the 1950s DuPont has provided the technology to safely protect the world’s most important assets. Today the DuPont FM-200 waterless fire suppressant is regarded as the world’s preferred choice when protecting assets, people and the environment and is the most widely used Halon replacement and clean agent for fire suppression. It has been deployed in Burj Khalifa, the Dubai Metro, Dusseldorf Airport and the Eiffel Tower.
In 2010, newly installed FM-200 systems protected an additional 2 million cubic meters of high valued assets and critical facilities throughout the Middle East compared to 2009. FM-200® has a zero Ozone Depletion Potential, which makes it a viable and sustainable alternative to Halon. It holds relevant approvals around the world and continues to set the performance benchmark for clean agent fire suppression systems in terms of safety, sustainability, efficiency, cost effectiveness and reliability.
“Our FM-200® systems can reach extinguishing levels in 10 seconds or less, providing the fastest, safest and least disrupting fire protection available. These are exactly the type of solutions the Middle East needs given its unique geography, growing population and dynamic business environments. We are excited to showcase our technologies and encourage improved vigilance against fire threats during Intersec,” said Neil Roberts, EMEA Sales Manager for Fire Extinguishing Agents.
DuPont’s family of clean agent fire suppressants also includes FE-36, providing maximum protection for people and assets in a portable fire extinguisher. The range of DuPont FE extinguishing agents embody the commitment of the company, for more than 208 years, to the safety of people, assets, and the environment.
