F.E. Moran has the experience, knowledge and resources to undertake and complete a high-quality, finished fire suppression project — on time and on budget. Our professional engineers provide value engineering to ensure the most cost-efficient project. With multiple locations, we serve markets throughout the United States.
Suppression Solutions for Every Type of Facility
Wet Pipe Sprinklers
The most popular due to their simplicity and low margin of error. Once the heat-sensitive automatic sprinkler is triggered by a fire, the pressurized water within in the pipe begins to flow.
Dry Pipe Sprinklers
A better option in areas that can freeze. When activated by a fire, the dry pipe valve opens to allow water to flow into the pipes. Since there is a time delay, we recommend more sprinklers in the area.
Ideal for use in areas that can be harmed by water, such as museums or computer rooms. A preceding fire detection event is required for the sprinklers to activate.
For use in areas in which people and water-sensitive equipment are present. Minimal water creates a stream that controls the fire without damaging the equipment.
Best for areas with high-risk equipment that is not vulnerable to water damage. Sprinkler heads are always open, so the water flows freely after a fire is detected.
Clean Agent Suppression
This type of system effectively extinguishes Class A (ordinary combustibles), Class B (flammable liquid and gas) and Class C (electrical) fires while protecting sensitive equipment. Chemical agents release gases that douse the fire, and inert gases lower the oxygen in the area to control the blaze. We design and install a wide array of clean agent systems, including NOVEC, VESDA, PROINERT, ECARO-25 and Stat-X.
This gaseous flooding agent stops fires from spreading by chemically disrupting combustion without damaging sensitive equipment. Today, it is used only in fixed fire extinguisher installations.
High-expansion foam systems are ideal for Class A (ordinary combustibles) fires and are used in confined areas with containment barriers. With low water content, water damage is minimized. Low-expansion foam systems cover a large space, and the foam also smothers Class B (flammable liquid and gas) fires.
CO2 High- and Low-Pressure
Carbon dioxide systems work well in areas that contain delicate equipment. Such systems are very effective in suppressing Class B (flammable liquid and gas) fires.
Fire Pumps, Tanks, Mains, Loops
The fire water supply is vital for any water-based fire suppression system. Expertise in specialized connections, system elements and working with extreme pressure applications is critical. F.E. Moran is experienced in every aspect of fire water supply installation.
