With a total of 8,348 cases of structural fires recorded by the Malaysian Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM) in 2023 and with more than 90 percent due to electricity there is a definite need for fire suppression.

Reacton a global leader in fire suppression solutions, has recently partnered with Sedatech Sdn Bhd, a prominent distributor in Malaysia to help address this challenge.

This type of fire requires clean agent technology and Reacton are the first manufacturer in the world to achieve UL2166 listing for Direct (DLP) Clean Agent technology that complements our listing for Indirect (ILP) Clean Agent.

This collaboration has led to a significant milestone: securing approval for Reacton 1230 Clean Agent fire suppression systems from BOMBA, the Malaysian Fire Department.

Project Objective

Entering a new market requires more than just a robust product; it demands compliance with local regulations and gaining the trust of local authorities. For Reacton and Sedatech, the primary objective was to introduce and validate the Reacton clean agent solution to BOMBA, ensuring it met Malaysia's stringent fire safety standards.

Multi Faceted Strategic Approach

  • Presentation and Education: A detailed presentation was organized to introduce the Reacton clean agent fire suppression system. The session highlighted the system's efficiency, reliability, and the UL approvals that underline its quality.
  • Proof of Concept:To demonstrate the effectiveness of the Reacton solution, a proof of concept was arranged. This included live demonstrations and practical examples showcasing the system's capabilities.
  • Study of UL Approvals: BOMBA officials were provided with comprehensive documentation on Reacton's UL approvals. This included detailed reports and case studies from other regions, demonstrating the system's proven track record.
