Why Industry Guard?
  • Badgerís Industry Guard Dry Chemical Fire Suppression System uses dry chemical compounds that, pound for pound, suppress more fire than any other agent
  • Industry Guardís flexible, pre-engineered systems are easy and affordable to install and maintain in virtually any industrial setting.
  • Industry Guard is from Badger Fire Protection: weíve been designing fire suppression systems for over 37 years

Coverage is Key...

  • Industry Guard systems assure
    • the best dry chemical coverage in the industry
    • quick fire detection and suppression
    • 24-hour, continual fire protection
    • superior dry chemical coverage that quickly suppress fires
    • audible and/or visual notification of system activation

Easy and Affordable to Install & Maintain

  • Industry Guard systems are compact, rugged and reliable - offering maximum protection with minimum maintenance.
  • Industry Guardís pre-engineered systems, backed by over 20 years of industrial design experience, are more cost effective because:
    • flexible, versatile system components save on hardware costs
    • installation is faster and easier
  • You consistently save on hardware and fire suppression agent costs because Badger has the right cylinder sizes and the right dry chemical agent (ABC or BC) for your system
  • Industry Guard system recharging is fast and economical; great for keeping maintenance costs low.
  • In applications where a dedicated water supply is not available, Industry Guard is the easy, affordable alternative to water and other costly clean agents.

The Right System For You...

One of the following UL 1254 Listed systems will be right for your application:
  • Total flooding systems are recommended for protection of totally or partially enclosed spaces or processes. When activated, a total flooding system quickly fills the protected space with either ABC dry chemical (multi?purpose) or BC dry chemical (for flammable liquids and electrical hazards).
  • Vehicle Paint Spray Booth Total flooding system meets UL 1254 (September, 1998) provides ABC required coverage of all needed areas utilizing either sidewall or overhead nozzles in the work area and nozzles placed in the plenum and duct.
  • Local Application systems suppresses fires in isolated, unenclosed hazards by applying the dry chemical directly onto the hazard using either overhead or tankside nozzles.
  • Open Front Spray Booth is designed to suppress fires in spray booths with unclosable openings. The UL-listed system provides total flood/screening coverage, and can be set up with as few as one cylinder.



Industry Guard authorized distributor can design and install the correct fire suppression system for your specific applications.

Automatic Protection...Around the Clock

industry guard bottlesTwo types of automatic detection to choose from:

    Mechanical detection provides reliable performance and comes in standard or rapid response modes.


Electrical detection provides enhanced sensitivity and is especially suitable for rapidly spreading fires or larger hazards.

Single Cylinder Systems protect most hazards effectively;

Multiple Cylinder Systems can be designed and installed in modules to protect exceptionally large hazards in a cost effective manner.

Listed & Approved

Badger's Industry Guard Dry Chemical Fire Suppression System using iether ABC and BC dry chemical agents are:

  • Listed by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc.
  • Designed to comply with NFPA 17 Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems and NFPA 33 "Spray Application Using Flammable and Combustible Materials"
  • Tested to the NEW more stringent real world criteria of standard UL 1254, September 29, 1998
  • Factory Mutual (FM) Research Corporation approved
Certified Quality

Badger's Industry Guard Dry Chemical Fire Suppression System is made in America in accordance with ISO 9001 certified quality standards.

Features of the System

  • Two types of detection electrical and mechanical (standard & rapid response) in six different temperatures
  • All system functions can be actuated manually (locally and/or remotely) and automatically
  • Control heads mounted on valve assembly
  • Standard Schedule 40 black or galvanage steel pipe and fittings
  • Nozzles available with protective blow-off caps
  • Total flooding with ABC or BC Dry Chemical (no loss of coverage between two)
  • Local application covered with BC agent, high and low overhead, and tankside nozzle
  • Open FrontúPaint Spray Booths, ABC and BC agent, specific application listed coverages that eliminate need to screen with one pound/square foot
  • Vehicle Paint Spray Booth (VPSB), ABC, providesúcoverage for work area, plenums (pits, tunnels, underfloor, solid back and drive thru) and ducts. Time delay available to meet new UL 1254 required 10 to 20 second time delay needed forúevacuation and fan run down.
    Note: UL 1254 requires that ABC chemical is used in VPSB
  • Multiple cylinder actuation (up to 100 cylinders) possible from one control head
All Industry Guard Systems are designed, installed and serviced by a national network of manufacturer-trained authorized distributors.
