Our vast knowledge in layout, design, and installation of fire suppression systems ensures a seamless customer experience. Patriot Fire’s technicians perform the highest caliber work knowing that these systems can be the first line of defense in life and property protection.
We’re certified to install/service all types and brands from renowned manufacturers including:
Industrial/Commercial Fire Suppression Systems
Data processing, aviation, medical, art, manufacturing, and other businesses use industrial fire suppression to prevent:
Damage to expensive equipment
Loss of irreplaceable data
Patriot Fire Protection offers innovative solutions for commercial fire hazards. Our designers have extensive project experience. They work alongside architects and engineers (mechanical, electrical, civil, and structural) to find the best response to any design challenge.
Dry Chemical Fire Suppression for Special Hazards
Dry chemical systems use chemical compounds that suppress more special hazard fires than any other agent. They are popular and budget-friendly with easy installation and maintenance.
Depending on application size and layout, companies can choose:
Automatic or manual operation
ABC dry chemicals are environmentally safe, non-toxic, and more effective than water in extinguishing:
Class A (wood, paper, cloth fires)
Class B (flammable liquid and gases)
Class C (electrical fires)
Dry chemical systems should be regularly inspected to stay effective. They must quickly sense fires, sound alarms, and discharge chemicals to prevent fire spread in industrial applications such as:
Flammable liquid operations
Gas turbine generators
Paint spray booths

Clean Agent Suppression Systems Are Eco-Friendly
Clean agents are a non-toxic option for facilities with sensitive resources like personnel, software, and rare items. Typical applications are:
Criminal evidence storage
Data processing centers
Clean agents combine chemically-based fire inhibition and cooling. They discharge as a gas throughout a protected area and leave no residue, eliminating equipment damage and costly cleanup.
They are the most versatile, highly-tested suppression systems available with most offering:
Minimal or zero ODP (Ozone Depletion Potential)
Low (or no) atmospheric lifetime
No usage restrictions listed by the Environmental Protection Agency
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Fire Suppression Applications
Available with automatic or manual operation, carbon dioxide systems remain the first choice for locations where Class B and Class C fires can occur. Characteristic applications include:
Flammable liquid storage
Flow coating machines
Lubricating oil pits
Carbon dioxide is a colorless, odorless, electrically non-conductive gas. It suppresses fire without leaving residue that could damage sensitive equipment.
CO2 has offered reliable fire extinguishing since the 1800s, and modern systems integrate technology such as:
Digital control panels
Advanced design agent distribution networks
Commercial Fire Suppression using Firefighting Foam
Firefighting foam bubbles consist of water, foam concentrate, and air. Categories of foam agents include aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), alcohol-resistant concentrates (ARC), protein foam concentrates, fluoroprotein foam concentrates, and high expansion foam concentrates.
Depending on the foam agent used, fire suppression can result when:
Foam coats the fuel surface and deprives the fire of oxygen.
The foam’s water content cools the fuel.
The foam blanket prevents the release of combustible fuel vapors.
A variety of discharge devices are offered for different applications:
Water-oscillating monitors use water pressure to move from side-to-side.
Remote control monitors use an electric joystick tied to a hydraulic system.
Manually operated monitors use a tiller bar to control direction and elevation.
Aspirating & non-aspirating nozzles are used with monitors and/or handheld hose lines.
Non-aspirated heads with AFFF agents are economical and used with open deluge or closed-head sprinklers.
Aspirated heads are required in deluge systems using protein and fluoroprotein foams.
Foam Chambers & Foam Makers
Foam chambers and foam makers are designed for flammable liquid storage tanks:
Foam chambers coat the inside tank wall and the liquid’s surface with expanded foam.
High back pressure foam makers inject expanded foam near the bottom of the tank wall, allowing foam to gently rise.
Foam makers installed in piping direct foam to specific hazards.
High-expansion generators coat their screens with foam solution.
Air is blown through the screen, expanding the foam (200:1 to 1000:1 range).
Risk of hazardous run-off is reduced since little water is needed.
Deluge Sprinkler Systems
All deluge sprinkler heads connected to the piping system are open. They don’t have a heat-sensing element or bulb and must be signaled by a heat-sensing initiating device. Water or foam is not present in the piping until the system activates and all sprinklers discharge at once.
These sprinklers are only used in special hazard areas such as:
Chemical storage/processing facilities
Flammable liquid handling facilities (ex: liquid petroleum)
Based on system type, sprinkler activation can be controlled manually, mechanically, or by heat-sensing initiating devices like:
Optical flame detectors
Deluge systems are needed where high-velocity suppression must be used to stop fire spread.
