Paint spray booths/rooms are areas designed to confine or limit the escape of spray, vapor and residue.  A power-ventilation system dedicated to these areas insures the appropriate exhaust of residual material.  Pyro Chem's dry chemical extinguishing agents are appropriate for type A, B, or C class fires.  A careful hazard survey should be conducted to properly define the type of fire to be extinguished.  In addition to the flammable/combustible liquids, the material composition of the object to be painted must be considered as well as resident material in the protected area.   Total flooding and local application fire extinguishing techniques as defined by N.F.P.A. 17 are utilized by Pyro Chem's fire extinguishing systems to protect the entire hazard which includes the work area plenum area and exhaust ducts.

The National Fire Protection Association Standards No. 33 "Spray Application using Flammable and Combustible Materials" and No. 17 "Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems" are primary reference sources and provide guidelines for the proper application and design of Pyro Chem's industrial fire extinguishing system in the specialized protection of paint spray booths and rooms.  Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual testing provide pre-engineered system application parameters allowing the flexibility to protect a variety of paint spray booth/room layouts with confidence.
