Johnson Controls Introduces CLEANGUARD+ Clean Agent Extinguishers
CLEANGUARD+ uses electrically nonconductive, FK-5-1-12 agent, making it one of the most eco-friendly commercial clean fire extinguishers.
MILWAUKEE – Global smart and sustainable building company Johnson Controls announced an extension to its commercial portable fire extinguisher lines with the newest, more environmentally friendly option, CLEANGUARD+, available through ANSUL and PYRO-CHEM.
“Knowing we’re incorporating the latest advancements for maximum effectiveness and reliability makes this launch particularly exciting,” says Danielle Felch, product manager for Portables at Johnson Controls, in the company announcement. “CLEANGUARD+ is not only a powerful tool but also a testament to our commitment to providing the best fire safety solutions for our customers.”
CLEANGUARD+ “uses the reliable, electrically nonconductive, FK-5-1-12 agent, with characteristics that make it one of the most eco-friendly commercial clean agent fire extinguisher options available,” the company announcement says.
These characteristics include:
- Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
- Global warming potential (GWP) less than 1
- One-week atmospheric lifetime
More About the Johnson Controls CLEANGUARD+
For commercial and industrial facilities that contain critical equipment, CLEANGUARD+ will be particularly beneficial. Its FK-5-1-12 agent is residue-free, corrosion-resistant and requires no clean-up after discharge, helping minimize collateral damages after operational downtime.
The FK-5-1-12 agent allows CLEANGUARD+ to be used in much smaller spaces than traditional, clean agent fire extinguishers. An optional MR Conditional model contains stainless steel components and is rated up to 7 tesla.
Like its predecessor, CLEANGUARD, CLEANGUARD+ is manufactured in the United States and uses the same reliable, high-performance technology. It is UL-ULC listed, is compliant with the NFPA 10 standard and is United States Coast Guard (USCG) approved.
