Fire Protection FAQs

What is Halon?

Halon is a fire suppressant agent found in both Fire Suppression Systems (Halon 1301) and Fire Extinguishers (Halon 1211). This is the most effective extinguishing agent available. Halon is a clean agent, which means it leaves no residue when used, so it causes no damage to your property.

Is Halon Banned?

Halon is not banned, but it is no longer manufactured. The phase out is being discussed but no dates are set. For more information about the phase out you can read more information about the Clean Air Act on the US EPA’s website.
