Today, from the range of chemical gases, only "clean" gases are used for firefighting, which have been proven not to disturb the environment. "Clean" fire extinguishers:
- are safe for humans,
- they are not conductors of electricity and do not damage electronics - water is a good conductor and damages electronics,
- do not leave sediment after extinguishing and do not require subsequent cleaning,
- due to the quick reaction, clean agents significantly reduce the amount of smoke and soot caused by fire,
- provide three-dimensional protection, extinguishing fire where water is not able.
