Detection and Design
The main consideration is the correct type of detection. Obviously the sooner the fire is detected the less damage is done BUT this has to be offset against false alarms as a false alarm can be very costly both in gas and down-time.
Most fire suppression systems will have a co-incidence or double-knock detection arrangement. This is where two different detectors need to be triggered to release the suppression agent.
There are many different types of detection from smoke and heat detection through to more sophisticated detection systems such as air aspiration and video fire detection. Which is the most suitable for your fire suppression system depends on your business factors and the system design.
