  • I am pitch one. This is why.

  • I am pitch two. This is how.

  • I am pitch three. CLOSE IT.


Most jurisdictions in the Southeast area require annual inspections of sprinkler systems to be performed to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards, so it’s a good idea to schedule an inspection with a trusted fire safety company each year.

Kitchen Hoods

Restaurant fire suppression systems are a must-have for your kitchen. FESS Fire Protection has long standing experience in the installation and inspection of restaurant fire systems. Based on your equipment type and hood size, we can find the most effective system for your requirements. We are an authorized Ansul and Pyro-Chem fire system distributor.

Clean Agent Systems

Using water as a fire suppressant in areas where electronics operate and irreplaceable, high-value assets are stored, could be as devastating as fire itself. Clean Agent Systems quickly suppress fires and protect sensitive equipment without causing harm to people or the environment. These systems are especially suited to suppress fires in areas where an electrically non-conductive medium is required, where electronic systems cannot be shut down in an emergency, where cleanup of other agents posses a problem, and in normal occupied areas that demand a non-toxic agent. FESS Fire Protection is an authorized dealer of Ansul FM-200 and Fire Trace Clean Agent Systems.

Special Hazard Systems

Special Hazards Suppression Systems help protect against asset loss in high-risk facilities. Environments including chemicals, flammables, processes or equipment require specialized fire protection and suppression solutions that a traditional sprinkler system may not be able to offer. Ask a representative if Ansul Industrial CO2 Systems & Pre Engineered FIRE TRACE Systems are right for your space.

Dry Chem

Dry Chemical fire suppression systems protect industrial hazards such as Spray Paint Booths, Flammable Liquid Hazards and also HazMat Storage Rooms. These systems are available in BC and ABC dry chemical compounds.

Industrial Vehicle Fire Suppression Systems

Industrial Vehicles contain large quantities of flammable liquids, under the right conditions, these flammables can accelerate a fire increasing the risk of injury, death, and complete loss of valuable equipment. The daily stresses on the mechanical and electrical components leaves them vulnerable for malfunctions which may result in ignition. FIRE TRACE is a unique, reliable solution for protecting your heavy equipment.
