Johnson Controls (NYSE: JCI), the global leader for smart, healthy and sustainable buildings, today announced an extension to its commercial portable fire extinguisher lines with the newest, more environmentally friendly option, CLEANGUARD+, available through ANSUL® and PYRO-CHEM®.

“Knowing we’re incorporating the latest advancements for maximum effectiveness and reliability makes this launch particularly exciting,” said Danielle Felch, product manager – Portables at Johnson Controls. “CLEANGUARD+ is not only a powerful tool but also a testament to our commitment to providing the best fire safety solutions for our customers.”

CLEANGUARD+ uses the reliable, electrically nonconductive, FK-5-1-12 agent, with characteristics that make it one of the most eco-friendly commercial clean agent fire extinguisher options available, including: 

  • Zero ozone depletion potential (ODP)
  • Global warming potential (GWP) less than 1
  • One-week atmospheric lifetime

For commercial and industrial facilities that contain critical equipment, CLEANGUARD+ will be particularly beneficial. Its FK-5-1-12 agent is residue-free, corrosion-resistant and requires no clean-up after discharge, helping minimize collateral damages after operational downtime. The FK-5-1-12 agent allows CLEANGUARD+ to be used in much smaller spaces than traditional, clean agent fire extinguishers. An optional MR Conditional model contains stainless steel components and is rated up to 7 tesla.

Like its predecessor, CLEANGUARD, CLEANGUARD+ is manufactured in the United States and uses the same reliable, high-performance technology. It is UL-ULC listed, is compliant with the NFPA 10 standard and is United States Coast Guard (USCG) approved.
