Nobel provides special risk fire protection to numerous public sector organisations; including governmental, local authorities, emergency services, NHS trusts, hospitals, schools and prisons.
Protecting people, property and services – from waste plants to train power cars, library repositories to kitchen cooking appliances, data rooms to subterranean tunnel utilities – the range of applications is almost endless.
We offer a bespoke service from initial risk analysis through to design, installation and ongoing maintenance.

Nobel K Series
The Nobel K-Series Wet Chemical Kitchen suppression system employs ‘gas generators’, similar to the technology used in car airbags, affording full protection to all the required cooking appliances, extract canopy and duct work. The K-Series is superior to traditional mechanical kitchen fire protection systems; more advanced technology, space saving, lower lifetime costs.
Stat-X is a Condensed Aerosol fire suppression system. Installation of this system requires no pipework or nozzles and the aerosol units are placed directly on or in the risk being protected. The potassium-based suppressant exhibits similar characteristics to gases but, unlike gas, the aerosol remains in suspension for up to an hour, providing extended post fire security against re-ignition. Stat-X is particularly effective at protecting electronic equipment/magnetic media, small process or plant hot spots, machinery spaces, switch gear and utilities.
IG541/55 Inert Gas
Inert gas systems suppress a fire by reducing Oxygen within a protected area but remaining above ‘safe for life support’ levels. Inert gases are used in applications where damage to the protected assets must be avoided at all costs; for example, library repositories, server rooms, and electrical equipment.
Low Pressure WaterMist
Watermist is a highly effective alternative to sprinklers. An advantage of watermist fire suppression systems is that the lower volumes of water required, in comparison to fire sprinkler systems, means that pipework diameters and storage capacities decrease accordingly. Watermist can be deployed at a range of pressures depending on the application.
