WATER MIST technology is a fire protection solution based on a principle similar to diesel fuel injection. Well-established as a fire suppression solution in the maritime industry, these systems are now becoming recognised in wider applications – for example, for protecting the elderly and vulnerable, and reducing the risk of damage to valuable assets, such as historic documents. In addition, at a time when reducing the carbon footprint of buildings is becoming more important, it can be a useful component of environmental strategy by saving on the volumes of water dispersed and energy used.
