The Appliance Fire Protection System from Advanced Aircraft Extinguishers, Ltd is an autonomous fire protection system appliance that provides smoke detection and fire suppression for containers, rooms, cabinets, stations, or compartments that are not monitored.
The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) recommends “the installation and use of active fire suppression systems in all aircraft cargo compartments or containers, or both, such that fires are not allowed to develop.” Ref. National Transportation Safety Board, Washington, D.C. 20594, Safety Recommendation dated November 28, 2012, A-12-68 through 70.
The Appliance is not mechanically or electrically connected to – or dependent on – any other system. The Appliance detects smoke and discharges an aerosol agent that completely floods the containment area. The amount of aerosol can be sized to fit any compartment. The Appliance can send signals to a separate monitoring station. The Appliance can receive signals from other sequential fire protection systems. Its rugged construction provides a long service life.
