Fire Protection System



Fire Suppression System

Model: KIDDE Marine Novec 1230

System Design:

The Kidde Engineered Fire Suppression System comprises Novec 1230 fluid stored in cylinders connected to distribution pipework and specially designed discharge nozzles.

Novec 1230 fluid is stored as a liquid in nitrogen-pressurised steel cylinders. This ensures minimal storage space and weight requirements compared to all other viable gaseous agents. It also enables refills to be transported in unpressurised cylinders without the restrictions on gaseous alternatives.

The range of cylinders, valves and related components has been specially selected for use with Novec 1230 fluid and has been subjected to stringent testing procedures. Flexibility, quality and reliability make the Kidde Fire Protection range the world’s finest in fire safety.

Engineered systems are designed using FM Global and UL verified software and guidelines, and offer optimum designs for the defined risks with reduced pipe sizes, unbalanced flows and common room and void protection possible.


A wide range of sizes from 5 to 368 litre is available, offering a choice of fill capacities to meet specific requirements and ensure maximum economy in installation. Each cylinder is manufactured from high strength alloy steel.


Valves are designed for optimum system performance, allowing pipe sizes to be reduced and installation costs to be lowered. They are manufactured from tough, corrosion-resistant brass under stringent quality control standards. A pressure monitoring gauge and/or pressure switches are provided for easy servicing. Valves are actuated by electric solenoid, pneumatic, or local manual release at the control head.

All related components from discharge nozzles to control heads are designed to be compatible, allowing a complete system to be configured using FM Global and UL approved Kidde Fire Protection equipment.


Custom-designed nozzles are available with nominal pipe sizes from 1/4 to 2 inch, including 180° and 360° configurations.
