H3R Performance Introduces New HalGuard Fire Suppression System

Featuring an EPA-approved "clean" extinguishing agent, the HalGuard Automatic Fire Suppression System provides around-the-clock protection for transport trailers, garages or repair shops. The system consists of a steel cylinder charged with a unique, non-toxic, non-conductive and non-corrosive clean agent gas, capped with one of four thermally actuated heads.

Featuring an EPA-approved “clean” extinguishing agent, the HalGuard Automatic Fire Suppression System provides around-the-clock protection for transport trailers, garages or repair shops. The system consists of a steel cylinder charged with a unique, non-toxic, non-conductive and non-corrosive clean agent gas, capped with one of four thermally actuated heads. When the head detects an ambient temperature higher than its rating, the system activates to rapidly discharge the clean agent to flood the space with an inert and invisible gas, which extinguishes the fire.

“Our system is very easy to install with common tools, and there is no piping or electrical power connections to consider,” said Chris Dieter, vice president, marketing & distribution, H3R Performance, Inc. “Plus, should a system discharge occur, the clean agent provides total flood protection of the space to extinguish the fire, and it does not leave a mess or damage vehicles or surfaces as compared to traditional dry chemical or water-based fire sprinkler systems.”

Whether used in a transport trailer, shop or garage, Dieter advises that the HalGuard Automatic Fire Suppression System should be mounted in the center of the ceiling, with the thermally activated head closest to the likely source of a fire. The cylinder securely mounts to the ceiling frame of a trailer, or to the studs in a building. Mounting hardware and instructions are included. The system is rechargeable and includes a 1-year factory warranty.

“To decide on the most appropriate thermal activated head to purchase, H3R Performance suggests adding 50 degrees to the maximum (i.e. hot day) ambient temperature conditions that are likely to occur,” explained Dieter. The HalGuard Automatic Fire Suppression System comes in two sizes. The HG4500S contains 45 lbs. of agent and protects a typical 24’ long trailer or 10’x14’ garage, while the HG5500S is filled with 55 lbs. of agent and protects a typical 28’ long trailer or 10’x22’ garage.
