Sustainable Solutions

Environmental Management

Fire Security evidences our commitment to the environment through our DNV GL ISO 14001 environmental management systems certification, which provides assurances to our end users on how we consider and manage the environmental impact of all aspects of our business, services and products.

Fire Security products and systems are LEED compliant, non-toxic, solvent-free, phosphate-free, and do not contain asbestos or any other substance identified as being cancerogenic. They release no poisonous and corrosive gases and smoke.

Cable Life Extension

Fire Security systems significantly extend the lives of cables and thus limit the need for resource-intensive cable replacement.

While metallic cable components (conductors, armor) are recoverable and recyclable, cables contain large volumes of plastic, PVC, XLPE in sheets, and insulation. This is commonly incinerated openly or disposed of in landfills. Extending cable lifetimes mitigates the negative end-of-life environmental impact of cables, as well as the inherent environmental and resource cost of unnecessary production and installation of new cables.

Active versus Passive Fire Protection

Fire Security systems reduce or eliminate the need for active fire suppression systems, which use millions of gallons of chemically treated water annually. During fires, this water is polluted further by fire by-products before it seeps into local watersheds. Protecting electrical cables with passive Fire Security systems shields ecosystems from unnecessary damage.

At Fire Security, we are committed to continuing our efforts towards sustainability and reducing our own and our end-users’ impact on the environment.
