suppression systems are typically installed to provide protection for the
equipment in sensitive or critical facilities such as data processing or clean
rooms. These systems are designed to alert occupants before extensive damage
occurs and to help protect the equipment by filling the area with gaseous or
chemical extinguishing agents. VSC Fire & Security, Inc. offers extensive
services for fixed chemical suppressions systems. We install, service
and inspect fixed clean agent systems including FM-200, Ecaro and Novec 1230.

Suppression systems for use in normally unoccupied areas. For protection of
turbine generators and bearings, we offer both high and low pressure Co2
suppression systems. For industrial applications as well as some commercial
