The latest innovation in fire suppression technology, the Kidde Natura™ Inert Gas System (Natura IGS) revolutionizes the way gaseous fire suppression systems are deployed, making installation easier, faster, and safer than ever before.
Much of the innovation comes from the Natura™ IGS pressure regulated valve which offers two distinct advantages. Firstly the ability to use 90 degree hoses off the top exit port making access around the cylinder easier and lowering the overall manifold height and secondly, eliminating the requirement of complex hardware to conduct pilot line testing. The introduction of an innovative valve cap which actuates under pressure, provides instant visual representation that pilot line is functioning and is reset with the simple press of a finger without the need for any tools – this function gives building owners and engineers peace of mind that the system is fully operational and installers a new tool when commission and testing newly deployed systems.
The Natura™ IGS offers nozzles with 360° and 180° discharge patterns which can be mounted in either upright or pendant style. These nozzles can be used in conjunction with our Acoustic Nozzle technology which reduces the sound power level significantly upon discharge in comparison to standard nozzles and are particularly useful in areas where sensitive electronic equipment is used such as Data Center or Server Rooms. The number and size of the orifice on each nozzle is custom calculated using the Flow Calculation Software Suite.
Installation time and labor costs are further reduced with the use of pre-fabricated manifolds, quick-connect actuation hoses and electrical connectors. Some of these efficiencies are found using the unique ‘Quick Connect’ cables which provide an expedient method of wiring the pressure gauges of the Release Unit and Slave Cylinder Gauge Assemblies. The open contacts of the supervisory pressure switch are connected in parallel using the same ‘Quick Connect’ cables in a daisy chain form.
Kidde Natura™ IGS provides high degrees of flexibility with a choice of multiple agents (IG55, IG541 and IG100), efficient installation and overall lower total cost of ownership driven by reduced material, installation and labor costs, as well as a more economical refill cost after a discharge. With global approvals and a selection of agents and hardware profiles, Natura™ IGS is the natural choice for your inert gas fire suppression system.
