The FPC solid compound, developed after many years of Research & Development, uses environment friendly, naturally occurring Potassium salts with no pyrotechnic materials involved. Our dedication to Green Technology and Sustainability is attested by the number and quality of EU and International Certificates, Listings and Approvals attained.
The Montreal Protocol on Substances that Deplete the Ozone Layer is an international treaty designed to protect the ozone layer by phasing out the production of substances that are responsible for ozone depletion. It was agreed upon on 16 September 1987, and entered into force on 1 January 1989. The result, is that the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica is slowly receding.
In our efforts to contribute towards humanity's sustainability development goals, we have focused on Green Technologies. Our FirePro products are manufactured from environmentally friendly materials that at the end of their useful lifetime can be re-cycled or re-used without waste.
The physical and chemical characteristics of our FirePro products ensure that they pose no threat to the environment once they are activated.
They are Ozone-Friendly and contain NO CFC’s, bear the ‘Green Label’ and are EPA-SNAP Listed (Significant New Alternative Policy) U.S.A.
Fluorinated gases (‘F-gases’) are a family of man-made gases used in a range of industrial applications. Because they do not damage the atmospheric ozone layer, they are often used as substitutes for ozone-depleting substances. However, F-gases are powerful greenhouse gases, with a global warming effect up to 23,000 times greater than carbon dioxide (CO2), and their emissions are rising rapidly.
FirePro Condensed Aerosol Fire Extinguishing units do not contain any harmful chemical substances e.g. Sulphur Hexafluoride SF6, Hydrofluorocarbons such as HCFC, HFCs (23, 32, 41, 43-10mee, 125, 134, 134a, 152a, 143, 143a, 227ea, 236cb, 236ea, 236fa, 245ca, 365mfc) and Perfluorocarbons PFCs, which are banned or in the process of being banned according to the regulation (EC) No 842/2006 of the European parliament and of the Council, due to their negative impact on the environment.
FirePro has been assessed by GEN (Global Eco-labelling Network) and can carry the Green Label Certificate. The Global Ecolabelling Network (GEN) is a non-profit making association of Type-1 ecolabelling organizations as defined by the ISO 14024 standard. Their standards address multiple environmental criteria across the life cycle of a product or service and, most importantly, they are transparent in their development process and employ independent, third-party verification. Its purpose is to improve, promote and develop the ecolabelling of products and the credibility of ecolabelling programs worldwide.
Every FirePro product is manufactured according to stringent international standards and requirements for quality and environmental management.
The ISO 14001 certificate is testimony that we at FirePro adopt a systemic approach to handling environmental issues within our organization. It is the most important standard within the ISO 14000 series and it specifies the requirements of an environmental management system (EMS) for small to large organizations
Issued by DNV GL (a third-party accreditation/certification body/registrar) the certificate lets our customers know and trust that we at FirePro actively ensure that our processes, products and services leave a minimal footprint on the environment.
FirePro is environmentally friendly and classified as a Green Product:
Laboratory tests consistently demonstrate that the FirePro FPC has no harmful effects on water, air, climatic conditions, animals, plants or micro-organisms. FirePro has proven that it is possible to protect lives and assets while caring for the environment and a sustainable future for humanity.
