Fireaway Announces United States Coast Guard (USCG) Approval
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Fireaway Inc. is proud to announce receipt of the United States Coast Guard (USCG) Certificate of Approval (COA) for our pre-engineered Stat-X® condensed aerosol fire suppression systems to protect Class A (surface), B, and C hazards in marine applications. USCG certified fire protection products are required for vessels operating within the waters of the United States. Stat-X is the first aerosol fire suppression system to secure this respected approval.
Fire protection systems for marine applications are undergoing rapid technology and regulatory changes.
- Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) based systems, such as FM-200TM, are being phased out through various global regulations, including the US EPA phasedown schedule which began in 2022.
- Manufacturers of other fluorine-based chemicals (such as FK-5-1-12, a.k.a. NovecTM 1230TM) used in similar fire suppression systems are voluntarily phasing out production based on accelerating regulatory trends1. EU regulators have already initiated this process.
