Advantages of Wet Chemical Fire Suppression

The main advantage of the wet chemical fire suppression system is its ability to automatically and quickly react after fire detection. In the kitchen and off road equipment applications, fires can spread extremely fast and wet chemical suppression systems provide the protection needed for these hazards. Since the system is pre-engineered Ahern has flexibility in nozzle, detection, and cylinders placement specific to the fire-risk hazards.


In 2023, we conducted life safety inspections of over 28,700 facilities company-wide.

Ahern is a quality company that does quality work. I personally wouldn't trust anyone else to do the work on my site.
