The Problem

Electrical enclosures and cabinets can be found, often in multiple numbers, in more or less every workplace, factory, warehouse or general commercial site.

These small enclosures, including those for distribution, control, communication and servers, can present a particular problem where faulty equipment, damaged wiring or improper installation can increase the risk of fire.

Fires in such enclosures can be difficult to identify, often until it is too late to take action, especially in well-sealed enclosures where there would be a limited escape of combustible products or heat.

The PAFSS Solution

Jactone PAFSS electrical fire suppression systems offer peace of mind with a fully tested, approved and certified solution for the fire protection of your electrical enclosures.

PAFSS Direct Low Pressure (DLP) fixed fire suppression systems have been specifically designed to protect small enclosures in accordance with Loss Prevention Standard, LPS 1666. “Requirements and test procedures for the LPCB approval of direct low pressure (DLP) application fixed fire suppression systems”. Read more about the LPS 1666 certification.

PAFSS DLP systems protect inside the enclosure and discharge at the heart of the fire, suppressing quickly and preventing the fire from spreading to neighbouring enclosures, equipment and the wider building. This can significantly reduce the risk of injury to personnel and losses caused by equipment downtime and operational disruption.

PROTECT UP TO FOUR ENCLOSURES WITH ONE SYSTEM

PAFSS systems are able to prevent migration of the fire between cabinets e.g. from Enclosure 1 > 2 > 3 > 4

As electrical enclosures are often situated adjacent to each other and in multiples, this prevention of fire spread is absolutely critical.

Since systems are sized to protect the volume of enclosures only and not the whole room, this means there is a considerable reduction in the overall quantity of extinguishing agent required. This can result in significant cost savings when compared to much larger systems.

PAFSS protects four enclosures with one electrical fire suppression system

Four enclosures each protected by individual PAFSS detection tubing. Each enclosure can be multi-compartment. NOTE: Risk assessment allows for only ONE fire in any ONE enclosure.

Ventilation and Airflow

PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems, which utilise 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid, are fully certified to LPCB standard LPS1666 with the added provision of being tested and approved for use on enclosures that have either VENTILATION (enclosed or open vents) and / or AIRFLOW (fans). The presence of either determines the system container size, as per the guidance and limits in the system manual.

This provision in PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems also future proofs the performance of the system against maintenance or modifications that introduce further vent areas or fans to the enclosure that is being protected.

UL LISTED DETECTION TUBE

The special detection tubing used in all PAFSS fire suppression systems is UL Listed.

The UL Listing qualifies all Jactone PAFSS detection tube as a ‘Heat-automatic Fire Detectors – Component’, after comprehensive testing in accordance with ANSI / UL 521 – ‘Heat Detectors for Fire Protective Signaling Systems’.

3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid

3M Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid
PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems use the clean agent extinguishant 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

As a 3M approved original equipment manufacturer (OEM) Jactone are pleased to offer our PAFSS DLP fixed fire suppression systems using 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. A fluoroketone, it’s environmentally sustainable and fast-acting. It’s a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable Halon 1301 replacement and hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) alternative. Not only does it have more than 99.9% lower global warming potential than any halocarbon agent accepted for use in occupied spaces, but 3M also offers its 20-year Blue Sky Warranty to help protect system owners from regulatory risk of phasedown or phaseout.

3M Novec 1230 fluid is waterless and discharged as a gas, making it ideal to extinguish fires in spaces where electronics or irreplaceable, mission critical assets are stored or where continuity of operations is crucial. It has the highest margin of occupant safety of any NFPA 2001 clean agent and evaporates quickly, leaving no residue. In addition, it is electrically non-conductive, designed for applications where energised circuits and electronic systems cannot be shut down during an emergency.

The benefits of PAFSS

CERTIFIED
PAFSS Direct Low Pressure (DLP) fixed fire suppression systems using 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid are LPCB certified to LPS 1666, with allowance for vents (open or closed) and airflow (fans).

EASY TO INSTALL
PAFSS is simple to install and maintain on both new and existing equipment.

AUTOMATIC
PAFSS offers a fast and automatic operation from the initial detection of a fire, through to suppressing it.

RELIABLE
Our UL listed highly reliable detection tube remains unaffected by dirt, dust, debris and oil.

FLEXIBLE
The detection tubing allows for an unlimited number of fire detection points. Its flexible nature means it can be located adjacent to identified risk areas, providing fast effective detection.

EARLY INTERVENTION
The early intervention of a PAFSS system can often prevent the release of a larger room suppression system, saving on expensive refill costs.

NO ELECTRICAL POWER
PAFSS requires no power supply for detection or actuation, remaining operational during a power interruption.

SYSTEM MONITORING
Integral pressure switches allow remote system monitoring and initiation of safeguarding actions.

QUALITY COMPONENTS
Superbly engineered specialist valves and pressure vessels containing clean agent 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid.

BSI ISO 9001:2015
BSI audited quality management system ensuring our commitment to quality products and services.
