Hercules Automatic Fire Extinguisher
Automatic Fire Extinguishers are for fixed installation adjacent to a fire risk. They discharge automatically if a fire occurs. Each unit is fitted with a heat activated glass bulb sprinkler head.
Dry Powder automatic fire extinguishers are commonly used in engine /plant rooms, switchrooms, boats and vehicles.
We also offer clean agent gas based solutions that leave no residue and typically provide added protection for boat engine compartments, sensitive electronics, plant and machinery, clean rooms and data storage areas. These can be FM200, HFC236, Recycled Halon 1211 or Halon 1301 depending on the needs.
Automatic Fire Extinguishers should be mounted centrally over the area to be protected, with the discharge nozzle pointing vertically downwards away from the ceiling.
It is especially useful in exhibition halls where booths are only temporary and installing a fire sprinkler is not a good idea.

A sprinkler would require a professional engineer’s endorsement as well as major works to install. This is where an automatic fire extinguisher shines. It will comply to fire code at a very affordable cost.
