Firefighting and fire suppression in the workplace is a complicated necessity. Water was, and still is, the primary tool to control structural fires. However, with today’s technical sophistication, containing a fire to a single area is not always enough. Critical facilities require an even higher level of fire protection. 

At ACAF Systems, we combine over 20 years of experience providing firefighting and fire suppression systems with a passion for continual innovation and a thorough understanding of the regulatory demands on the industry.  We have developed fluorine free, foam pressure fire safety systems ready for today’s business and manufacturing challenges.  

ACAF products are manufactured exclusively in the United States and are FM approved.  We specialize in the Power, Oil & Gas, Aviation, Mining and Petro-Chemical industries.

National Interagency Fire Center (NIFC) in Boise, Idaho, showed that 90% of water used on test fires failed to extinguish because the water did not penetrate the fire.
NIFC also did a study and found that in the state of Oregon, 75 cents of every dollar paid in fire claims was the result of water damage.
