INERGEN is a mixture of nitrogen, argon and carbon dioxide gases and has been specially developed to provide fire protection as a Halon 1301 replacement. INERGEN extinguishes fire by reducing the oxygen level in a room to below 15%, the point at which most combustibles will no longer burn. Simultaneously the carbon dioxide in INERGEN stimulates the uptake of oxygen by the human body, so protecting anyone who might be trapped in the fire area from the effects of the lowered oxygen levels.
INERGEN has been medically evaluated and approved by leading authorities around the world. All of them have accepted INERGEN as being safe for use in “normally occupied areas”.
INERGEN is stored in gaseous form. It therefore does not produce fog when the gas is released into the room, so escape routes are not obscured. Because IG541 is a mixture of naturally occurring gases, it does not form decomposition products in a fire.
