Salgrom Hex-Max

High fire risk locations in industry and IT business include various transformers, electrical panels and boxes as well as server racks. Safeguarding these areas with traditional fire suppression methods cause a risk of irreversibly damaging the equipment, assets or property – even those spared from the fire, causing additional costs.

With Salgrom Hex-Max™ aerosol fire suppression systems you can safely extinguish fires in unmanned max. 10 m3 spaces without collateral asset damage. The Hex-Max™ suppression unit activates automatically at 170  C or in direct contact with the flame via a heat-sensitive trigger wire, at which point the nontoxic aerosol contained in the Hex-Max™ is discharged, extinguishing the fire quickly.
