Car decks are covered with different types of water based suppression systems, depending on
the surrounding conditions and local regulations. Closed car decks are generally covered with
low pressure water mist, while open car decks represents different conditions that require other
types of coverage. Local requirements like foam curtains are added where applicable.
Open deck areas represents a challenge when it comes to fire suppression due to the constant
supply of oxygen and the effect of wind that allows rapid development of a fire.
These systems are based on seawater mixed with 1-3% low expansion foam, delivered though
monitors and hose reels, covering the fire with a foam blanket to prevents further fire outbreak.
