Marine Fire Suppression Systems

Based on your specific needs, we can design/install marine fire suppression systems utilizing:

  • CO2
  • Clean Agent (FM-200*, Halon 1301, Inergen)
  • Conventional and Addressable Fire Alarms

Maximum marine fire protection starts with a properly designed and installed suppression system. Factors such as the vessel, cargo, and regulatory agency will help determine the best fire suppression system for you.

Your marine fire system must also meet local fire codes and the insurance policy guidelines to prevent liability issues down the road.


* There is now a phase-down of FM-200 as a clean agent, as coordinated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This phase-down is driving the increase of FM-200 prices. Call our sales team today to inquire about current prices and alternative agents.

During these inspections, our factory-trained techs may:

  • Thoroughly inspect all system components
  • Weigh all cylinders of the primary and secondary systems
  • Inspect, weigh, and tag all portable extinguishers
  • Provide a Certificate of Inspection
Contact us to schedule your ABS or USCG inspection today, and we'll meet you at the dock.
