Argonite®/ Inergen

The natural alternative to Halon 1301

Albion specifies and installs the Argonite system by Ginge-Kerr. It is the cost effective and environmentally friendly alternative to Halon. Tested and approved by regulatory bodies throughout the world. Argonite is effective against fires in almost all combustible materials and is particularly suitable for use in areas where the use of water, foam or powder would be unacceptable.

In most cases all electrical, detective and controlling equipment of reasonably up-to-date standard (less than 10 years old) can be reused. Halon containers, pipes and nozzles are always replaced with Argonite system parts.

In comparison to Halon and other chemical alternatives Argonite is relatively inexpensive, which makes a refill of an Argonite system equally inexpensive.

Ideal for protecting high value areas

We specify Argonite systems to meet the needs of each individual customer. Argonite systems are ideally suited to the protection of fixed equipment and plant. They are particularly applicable for high value risks where fires can have devastating consequences way beyond the cost of damage and lost production. Applications include:

  • Computer suites
  • Telecommunications facilities
  • Archive stores
  • Control centres

With low installation and maintenance costs, no post-fire residues or damage to protected equipment the product is the solution for occupied areas. It can be integrated with existing detection and alarm systems giving minimum downtime after a fire. Argonite is approved and/or (verified) by most international authorities and since 1993 more than 15,000 Argonite systems have been installed world-wide.
