Special Hazard Fire Suppression Systems


Environmentally-friendly. The preferred fire suppression system for vital facilities that can't afford fire-related business interruption of process controls, automated industrial operations, robotics, etc. Active on fire, but inert on people; non-toxic when used per NFPA Standard 2001. Safe, no-residue protection for Class A, B and C fires. Every Kidde system checked for design accuracy. Designed for maximum protection with minimum hardware; less space, lower cost. UL Listed and Factory Mutual approved.

• FE-13

The Kidde FE-13 Suppression System is designed for protection of applications in low temperature environments and high-ceiling structures or where a high concentration of fire suppression agent is required to inert the protected application against fire. Uses clean, fast, people-safe FE-13 gaseous agent that works by absorbing heat from the fire. System includes detectors, a control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles.


  • Listed and approved for use by the U.S. EPA
  • Ideal for inerting environments
  • Tested and approved with all of Kidde's various detection and control options
  • Flexible design to fit your application

Technical Specification:
Provides its own source of propellant with a high vapor pressure

Extinguishes fire both physically and chemically

Very low boiling point to allow a discharge to gas at low temperatures (140° F)

Typical use concentration at 18% - NOAEL at 30% - High Safety Margin

Approved for hazards with 25 foot ceiling heights

• Novec 1230

Kidde Engineered Fire Suppression System Designed for Use with 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid is engineered to provide clean, fast, people-safe protection for applications requiring a “green” solution to fire suppression. The system includes detectors, a control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles. The system is computer calculated to provide system discharge within 10 seconds.


  • Provides a high safety margin with a 4.2% use concentration and a 10% NOAEL level.
  • Listed for protection against Class A, Class B and Class C fires.
  • Is a fluid at atmospheric pressure and can be gravity fed for easy recharge.
  • Extinguishes fire through heat absorption and not oxygen reduction.

Technical Specifications:
Novec™ 1230 Fluid presents distinct environmental benefits, including a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and the lowest Global Warming Potential (GWP) of a chemical based clean agent, key to satisfying demands of environmentally sensitive markets and end-users.

The Engineered System — allows design flexibility using our Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid system design software.

Provides a high safety margin with a 4.2% use concentration and a 10% NOAEL and > 10% LOAEL level.

Listed for hazard temperatures between 0°F and 132°F.

• Argonite

The Argonite fire suppression system uses an inert gas that offers effective fire protection with zero environmental impact.  It is a simple blend of 50% Argon gas and 50% Nitrogen gas with a density similar to that of air.  Both Argon and Nitrogen are clean, natural gases that are readily available throughout the world.  Argonite is safe and effective for use on many applications—it is well suited for leaky enclosures such as flight simulators, substations, and control rooms and for applications with multiple hazards.


  • Argonite has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and zero Global Warming Potential (GWP)
  • No secondary products of combustion when exposed to flame
  • Cost effective
  • Capable of remote cylinder location from hazard

Technical Specifications:
Cylinder pressure at 2900 PSIG

Can be used to extinguish Class A, Class B or Class C fires

Listed and Approved for use with selector valves

Protection for enclosures with temperatures from -20°F to 130°F


  • ULC Listed (Canada)
  • Factory Mutual Approved

• Carbon Dioxide

The Kidde Carbon Dioxide Fire Suppression System is an engineered system available in three application configurations: total flooding (for unoccupied areas), local application or hand-hose line. System includes detectors, a control unit, agent storage cylinders, piping and discharge nozzles. Gaseous carbon dioxide rapidly suppresses fire by a combination of cooling and oxygen displacement. Discharge duration and agent flow rates are customized for the individual application.


  • Proven quality and reliability with the Kidde brand.
  • Tested and approved with all of Kidde's various detection and control options.
  • An inexpensive and easy-to-access agent when refill is necessary.
  • Wide ranges of proven safe, hazard protection.

Technical Specifications:
Reduces the oxygen content of the atmosphere to a point where
combustion becomes impossible.

Hardware to accommodate any application and system type

Offered in 25 lbs. to 100 lbs. cylinders
