How Pyroshield Works

Pyroshield is a gas-based fire extinguishing system that works by displacing the oxygen in the air. When the oxygen level in the air drops below a certain level, combustion is no longer possible and the fire is eliminated.

Pyroshield is a non-toxic and electrically non-conductive agent, making it ideal for use in sensitive electronic environments. It is also environmentally friendly, as it does not produce any harmful emissions.

  • Computer rooms
  • Data centers
