The Monarch System is an industrial-strength leader for multiple applications. Industrial and automotive commercial environments can develop a truckload of potential fire hazards.
Hazardous material storage areas and commercial paint spray booths today involve highly flammable liquids, creating an environment in which a fire is always a threat. Fumes can build up, chemicals can leak or spill. Add an ignition source and it becomes a potentially devastating combustion. If fire occurs, systems must be shut off and alarms and other electrical devices must be activated. The Monarch Pre-Engineered Dry Chemical System can protect a diverse range of hazard areas and perform all the necessary auxiliary functions.
Automotive Paint Spray Booths
Paint spray booths/rooms are areas designed to confine or limit the escape of spray, vapor, and residue. A power ventilation system dedicated to these areas helps ensure the appropriate exhaust of residual material. PYRO-CHEM dry chemical suppressing agents are appropriate for Class A, B, or C fires. A careful hazard survey should be conducted to properly define the type of fire to be suppressed. In addition to flammable/ combustible liquids, the material composition of the object to be painted must be considered as well as resident material in the protected area. Total flooding and screening application techniques as defined by NFPA 17 are utilized by the MONARCH fire suppression systems to protect the entire hazard which includes the work area, exhaust plenum area and exhaust ducts.

Hazardous Material Storage Buildings
A growing number of local, state, and federal ordinances concerned with the storage and containment of hazardous materials has led to the development of special application prefabricated storage buildings. These secured structures are intended to segregate hazardous materials from a main facility where occupancy or the lack of proper spill containment can result in accidental injury or ground contamination.

The MONARCH pre-engineered Industrial Fire Suppression System offers a cost effective solution for most hazardous material storage buildings. The PYRO-CHEM dry chemical suppressing agents are appropriate for Class A, B or C fires. A careful hazard survey should be conducted to properly define the type of fire to be suppressed. Resident material in the protected area must be considered in addition to the stored flammable/ combustible liquids. The MONARCH system utilizes a “total flooding” protection concept as defined by NFPA Standard No. 17 – “Dry Chemical Extinguishing Systems.” Underwriters Laboratories and Factory Mutual provide pre-engineered system application parameters allowing the flexibility to protect a variety of hazardous material storage building layouts with confidence.
