Rotarex Firetec now provides a set of compatible components that, when assembled according to tested limits, UL 2127 standards and specifications outlined in NFPA 2001, form a complete UL listed
inert gas fire suppression system. We have invested in UL listing so our customers no longer have to bear the burden and can remain focused on what they do best – system engineering, design and installation. As well, when new components are developed, we update the UL listing.
Achieving UL listing took 2.5 years of full-time work by 12-15 members of the
Rotarex Firetec team. The cost was 500,000€. Every component – fire cylinder valves, pressure regulators, actuators, nozzles and more – was tested. Many were tested multiple times.
When you choose
inert gas fire extinguishing system components, you have effectively outsourced UL listing – and you can be confident that you are providing your customers with quality components that have been proven to perform.
- UL listing is often a requirement for participating in tenders
- UL listing is beneficial for fire insurance
- Offering a UL listed system opens new sales opportunities
- UL listing increases end-user confidence
The components for our 200-300 bar inert gas total flooding system are easy to configure and install. Using a constant flow pressure regulator that modulates discharge pressure to a constant 40-60 bar means that lower pressure manifolds can be used, plus venting and pipework requirements are simpler – lowering costs and enabling easier installation. The systems are easy to maintain and functional tests are possible while the system is armed, and are compatible with all inert gas types.
