IB-16 Oxygen Reduction Fire Prevention Systems (ORFPS)


Oxygen reduction fire prevention systems (ORFPS) are designed to create and maintain an oxygen-reduced atmosphere in an enclosure that can prevent the ignition of combustibles within the protected area while maintaining a safe environment for the occupants.

This Information Bulletin provides an overview of this relatively new fire protection technology, including:

  • How it works
  • Where it can and can't be used
  • Health and safety considerations
  • Information on designing, installing, commissioning and maintaining ORFPS.
