Dearborn Works facility provides a high hazardous production services for AK Steel such as carbon steel melting, casting, rolling and finishing services. These are considered hazardous in the fire protection industry because of the potential for fire. We designed a Vortex fire suppression system that protects multiple different hazards within the facility. We also created several standalone Vortex systems protecting smaller rooms. Vortex systems are great for areas with machinery as its technology limits the amount of wetness on the equipment. Vortex systems can quickly be recharged and ready to use again. These systems also work effectively in open areas.
