Ansul Twin Agent System

The Challenge

Costly downtime is not an option in the waste recycling industry. Shredders, in particular, need to be running almost all the time. So McGrath needed a service that gave them a fast response. Their business was also expanding, so they wanted a service that could keep adapting to their changing needs.

Our solution

In terms of kit, we provided twin agent fire suppression, along with engine shut down, battery isolation and sounder beacon options. This included protection for new wheel loading shovels with fully automatic twin agent systems and fully monitored Checkfire 210 control modules. These insurance-approved systems have proven their worth in extinguishing potentially catastrophic fires.

Our service contracts ensure that whenever there is a callout, we're generally on-site no later than the next day. We also make sure that when machines are moved, scrapped or sold, service contracts are moved to new machines, ensuring that no pre-paid contracts go to waste.

We choose Ardent for two reasons: the quality of their twin agent suppression systems and the outstanding 24-hour service they provide. With Ardent, we know our business-critical machinery is in safe hands.
