Aircraft Hangar Fire Suppression

An aircraft hangar for light aircraft

An aircraft hangar is one of the places where appropriate fire suppression systems are the most critical: protecting aircraft and hangar, as well as valuable equipment and personnel is going to rely on careful planning and design, as well as a combination of water-based and dry-chemical-based fire suppression systems. This can be made simple by installing Cease Fire's patent-pending dual agent dry chemical fire suppression units into your hangar in just the areas where water-based fire suppression isn't going to be desirable.

Cease Fire has been providing waterless fire protection since 1986, earning a place at the forefront of the dry chemical modular fire suppression industry. Currently, Cease Fire is in negotiations with the U.S. Government to place Cease Fire technology onboard the new DD-221 "zumwalt" class ships. In addition to the U.S. Government, Cease Fire's fire suppression units have been used by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration), O'Hare International Airport, Honeywell, LTV Steel, Navistar, US National Park Service, Chicago Transit Authority, London Underground, and Intel. In the years since 1986, over 25,000 automatic units and one million handheld portables have been sold—and the demand for systems that suppress fire without water keeps growing.

Planning and installing the waterless fire suppression system you need as a back up system to your aircraft hangar's sprinkler system is much simpler than you might think. Cease Fire's CFF-800 dry chemical fire suppression units are completely portable, and are the industry's only truly modular system. This means no pipes, no wiring—just a pre-engineered unit mounted to the ceiling. If your aircraft hangar has large areas you desire to protect with the dry chemical fire suppression units, simply install multiple units. Again, no wires, no pipes—just individual, stand alone fire suppression units that are simply removed from the mounting flange when maintenance or replacement is needed.

In addition to the ease of installation, design, maintenance, and inspection, the CFF-800 utilizes an EPA-approved clean agent gel that replaces the Halon gas fire suppression systems of yesterday. This clean agent dry chemical fire suppression system consists of a blend of DuPont's FE-227 gas with Cease Fire's proprietary ABC powder. When the system is discharged, the FE-227 gas quickly—within four to five seconds—extinguishes the fire and then dissipates, while the ABC powder covers all the surfaces of the area to be protected in your aircraft hangar, preventing re-ignition. Once the fire is out, a simple clean up is all that is required to get your hangar back in service and your aircraft back in the air.

The Cease Fire dual agent blend has been proven to be non-corrosive, a necessary trait in protecting your aircraft. It has also proven to be non-conductive, and—importantly for the pilots and other personnel occupying the aircraft hangar—is non-toxic. This allows safe evacuation of the burning hangar as well as makes for easier, safer clean-up when the fire is extinguished.

Cease Fire has supplied hundreds of customers with the gentle but powerful fire suppression systems that their facilities need, in an efficient, cost-effective manner. Don't rely on your water-based sprinkler systems alone for fire protection—install a dry chemical system and rest assured that neither fire nor water will damage your hangar's most fragile equipment.
