Paint spray booths are utilised in facilities from small automotive body shops to very large industrial facilities. Not only do most used lacquer and paint products that may provide a fuel for a fire, the fires by-products can place a much larger danger to personnel in the area of the fire.
This application requires a system designed to sense fires quickly, sound alarms to warn personnel in the area and suppress the fire. Kidde offers a unique approach to fire protection—total system solutions. With this approach in mind, we have established a total fire protection package ideal for a Paint Spray Booth. Listed below are Detection and Suppression Systems most commonly used for this type of application.
Kidde IND Dry Chemical Fire Suppression System
The Kidde IND Industrial Dry Chemical Fire Suppression System offers a design concept to fit any type of paint mixing area. Proven Kidde heat detectors spot the fire in seconds and the system’s control unit sounds the alarm and triggers the discharge of dry chemical into the protected area. Covering more volume with less agent, the system uses either Class ABC or Class BC rated dry chemical to offer the best pound-for-pound fire suppression performance together with superior protection against fire re-ignition.
