Today, many food distribution warehouse owners are turning to a new fire protection system designed specifically for cold storage facilities. The Quell™ Fire Sprinkler System, developed in 2006, is an advanced system that uses a “surround and drown” approach to rapidly control a fire using a large volume of water. This not only puts out the fire quickly, but also reduces heat and minimizes damage to the distribution facility itself and to the contents and products.
