Carbon Dioxide (CO2) is a colourless, odourless, electrically non-conductive gas that is highly efficient.

The widely used and oldest extinguishing agent (adopted from more than 80 years ago) is also the first gaseous agent used for fire suppression.

CO2 can be used for local application and total flooding systems, and is suited to a diverse range of applications and hazards. Its high rate of expansion makes it possible for rapid fire suppression, providing a heavy blanket of gas that reduces the oxygen level to a point where combustion cannot occur.

However, it is not approved for occupied spaces unless fitted with a safety interlock device to prevent the system from discharging when the enclosure is occupied.

CO2 is best suited to protect applications such as generator sets, turbines, switch gear, flammable liquid baths, electrical enclosures and transformers.
