Fire Suppression for Marine – US Flagged Vessels

Stat-X condensed aerosol technology is approved by the United States Coast Guard and offers versatile fire protection with compact, customizable units.

The safety of a US marine vessel is a top priority for mariners, especially concerning the potential for onboard fires. At sea, the absence of a fire department to assist amplifies the importance of proactive safety measures. In the absence of an effective fire protection system, a fire incident may reach its resolution before assistance arrives, resulting in significant damage and exposing both the vessel and crew to potential risks from the elements.

An operable fire suppression system is a major component of the US Coast Guard inspection required for US-flagged vessels. That’s why workboats, offshore service vessels, barges, tour boats and ferries, law enforcement, yachts, and other recreational boats need an advanced fire suppression system that is USCG-approved, and more owners and operators are turning to Stat-X for their marine fire suppression systems.
