  • Aerosol extinguishing mechanism: it is used for fire due to solid materials, combustible oils, electric systems and domestic systems. This mechanism isn’t harmful for people and it can be used on class A, B or C fires;
  • Gas Inert extinguishing mechanism: ideal for areas with tools and machineries, this mechanism uses the mix of two gases, Argon (Ar) and Nitrogen (N2), both gases are chemically inert, colorless and non-corrosive, and also high compatible with the environment. It can be used on class A, B or C fires;
  • Pulverised water extinguishing mechanism: ideal for industrial spaces, productive areas, or areas where there are oil tanks, hotels and B&B, warehouses and storages, airports and computer rooms.
