As UK distributors of specialist VID Fire-Kill water mist equipment for applications such as recycling, conveyors, tunnels and saunas, Ultra Surefire were invited to Denmark for their global water mist seminar in March 2016. The seminar was attended by invited fire experts around Europe who shared their views on water mist installations. Up for discussion were recent case studies including Ultra Surefire’s biomass success story, challenges from the insurer’s point of view and standards. Our specialist industrial team were also able to view live fire tests of the FM approved low pressure water mist nozzle range. 

Cable and communication tunnel applications formed part of the seminar, specifically around the fully tested and approved VID water mist tunnel system. Fitted with large amounts of fire loads, should a fire develop communication networks could be seriously affected.  Accessibility for fire protection and especially fire fighting personnel can often present an issue further exacerbating the incident.

A unqiue system capable of handling these issues is available from Ultra Surefire, which has been full scale fire tested in real tunnels with fire loads up to 100MW, proving that they control and suppress tunnel fires reducing the temperatures drastically and the creation of smoke back layer.
