Declaration of equivalence from agency PEUTZ, certified and compliant with ISO, EN, UL, NFPA and BRL.
The damage caused by extinguishing is often greater than the fire damage. Aerosol fire extinguishing systems have a declaration of equivalence from the engineering firm Peutz in line with the General Requirements of the Building Decree in The Netherlands. This means that by installing a simple system of AF-X Fireblocker rooms can be protected against fire within the requirements of the Building Decree, without additional structural provisions, without expensive fire-resistant or fire-retardant materials and without sprinkler water systems. This means a huge cost saving for construction and renovation projects, certainly if it concerns high-rise buildings.
No extinguishing damage
When a fire starts in a (automatic) parking garage, it quickly seizes around because the heat cannot go anywhere. Due to the enormous heat, regular parking garages and especially automatic parking garages are almost inaccessible to firefighters at such a moment. The only thing they can do is flood it. And this brings enormous damage!
Does not expel oxygen and is not corrosive
Extinguishing with a dry Aerosol, extinguishes the fire quickly, effectively and does not damage the equipment present in your parking garage. An Aerosol extinguishes the fire at the molecular level by binding with oxygen and stabilizing it so that the energy present is extracted from the flame. Aerosol is not harmful to humans and does not expel oxygen.
Extinguishing effect and fire classes
Extinguishing at the molecular level. With conventional systems, an element is removed from the fire triangle. The extinguishing effect of the AF-X Fireblocker is more intelligent. At the molecular level, fire is nothing but a chemical reaction. Unstable molecules float around within that chemical reaction. These unstable molecules are also called free radicals. Upon activation of the af-x extinguishing systems, the aerosol mist immediately establishes a connection with these free radicals. The aerosol then again provides stable molecular connections. In this way the fire is blocked at the very first stage without cold shocks, without water and without oxygen expulsion.
Save money on modifications
The fire-extinguishing system of AF-X is easy to install. Moreover, no structural modifications are required. This means that you can save considerably in advance. Think of:
- Water storage;
- Drip trays;
- Measurres against pressure;
- Separate room for gas bottles.
We can optimize your fire protection in existing (automatic) garages that are already equipped with an extinguishing system. By equipping the sources of fire with an automatic fire extinguishing system you prevent the fire from spreading and your total flooding extinguishing system is activated. Consider, for example, switch boxes and control cabinets. The fire is immediately dealt with in the switch box or control cabinet.
Advantages of the AF-X Fireblocker fire extinguishing system for (automatic) garages:
- Very efficient and effective extinguishing agent
- No extinguishing damage
- Easy installation
- No structural modifications
- Non-harmful for humans
- Does not expel oxygen
- Environmentally neutral
- Financially attractive
- Fast detection and extinguishing
- Directly at the source
The AF-X Fireblocker developed by AF-X contains the world’s most effective condensed aerosol extinguisher. The AF-X Fireblocker is certified by KIWA in accordance with the following norms and guidelines:
- ISO 15779
- EN 15276
- UL 2775
- NFPA 2010
- BRL K23001
With our fire protection systems it is possible to control the fire without causing any damage to people, the environment and other equipment and materials that are present in the parking garage.
An additional advantage is that an AF-X Fireblocker extinguishing system is a much better investment than traditional extinguishing systems. Our fire extinguishing systems are low in maintenance and have a service life of at least 15 years.
