Fire behaviour and occurrence of Fire in enclosures protected by oxygen reduction systems

Recently, fire protection through permanent reduction of the oxygen concentration has been proposed as a fire protection system to replace traditional extinguishing systems or other passive fire protection systems such as fire compartmentation. The system which is called "hypoxic airventing" means that the oxygen content in the room is lowered below normal atmospheric level. Another term for the system is often oxygen reduction system (ORS).
