Having a system UL listed against the UL 2166 standard for Halocarbon Clean Agent Extinguishing System Units provides our product with the world's most recognised and adopted approval for Clean Agent systems. It’s been commonplace for indirect and total flood systems to have UL 2166 listing for some time but Reacton Fire Suppression are now the first company who have successfully developed this for Direct technology. This has been as a result of huge innovation and demanding testing required to prove the technology to the rigorous UL 2166 standard.

 Reacton Fire Suppression Ltd have now had their portfolio of pre-engineered products officially tested and certified for the applications previously only accessible by other systems. What this now offers is a globally recognised and well adopted fire test that can be applied to the Direct technology, giving you peace of mind that the product has gone through the most demanding of independent tests and passed.

 UL 2166 not only allows the Direct systems to be applied to larger volumes than current systems, but it also satisfies the requirements of NFPA 2001 and has performance, construction and operational tests that much larger systems have to endure. This is a massive step forward in showcasing that Detection Tube systems from Reacton not only ensure the safety and reliability of your high value assets but now offer an accessible and approved alternative technology.

 With the Reacton fire suppression Direct Technology system you can protect your critical assets with a cost-effective solution, opening up a high level of protection backed by a globally recognised certification. Reduced insurance premiums are readily available with this Direct technology, contributing to your overall financial savings. This now includes applications such as electrical panels & enclosure, server cabinets, CNC machines and fume cupboards.

 UL 2166 is a standard for safety that applies to the construction, performance and operation of Halocarbon clean agent fire extinguishing systems units intended to be installed, inspected and maintained in accordance with NFPA 2001 (Standard on Clean Agent Fire Extinguishing Systems). These units are typically used for total flooding of enclosed rooms or structures. The halocarbon agents used in these systems are non-conductive, leaving no residue, making them safe for use in environments containing sensitive equipment.

 Clean Agents are the leading choice for automatic fire suppression when rapid protection & zero clean-up is required for your sensitive equipment. Reacton's Clean Agent range consists of 3M™ Novec™ 1230 Fire Protection Fluid and FM-200™ waterless fire suppressant from Chemours™. All products are recognised and listed in standards such as ISO 14520 & NFPA 2001.

 Systems & Products wearing the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Mark demonstrates that we are focused on providing a secure, safe and sustainable offering to our customers. UL has been a leader and trusted name in safety science for more than 125 years, providing ultimate confidence that products and systems have completed their test requirements.
