Protect your home

Our custom made Water Mist System is designed specifically with the family home and multi-user kitchen environments in mind, such as student accommodation, HMO’s and blocks of flats where the risk of fire is increased owing to a number of salient factors.

The application of our fire suppression system is wide ranging. As such, we have installed our water mist pump and discreet nozzles into large residential development projects, care homes, hotels and saunas.

Next Generation

No.1 Fire Suppression for the Home

We design, install and maintain an active water mist system that will protect your home and loved ones in the event of the unthinkable.

Our Water Mist System is one of the most modern, highly efficient, eco-friendly systems in the industry to date and with a compact unit that self tests (monthly), means you only need to service once a year.

Furthermore, with patents granted in the United Kingdom, USA, Australia and Europe, our fire suppression system is notably the market leader in discreet nozzle techniques.


What is a Water Mist System?

A water mist system is a fire protection system which uses very fine water sprays (i.e. water mist)?

The micro water droplets (1,000 times smaller than a standard water droplet) allow the water mist to control, suppress or extinguish fires by cooling both the flame and surrounding gases by evaporation while also displacing and smothering the oxygen by evaporation.

Our Water Mist System has been designed, tested and approved to protect from fire hazzards and promote easy installation into all residential properties. 

Easy Installation

Fully Customised Design

To ensure your residential water mist system passes all safety and guidelines standards, you can trust IPH to install all fixtures and fittings:

water mist system

Custom Pump

Our sleek compact pump unit, has the power to protect your property. It can be connected directly to the mains water and includes an automated and digital manual test facility.

Flexible Hose

Our R7 thermoplastic hydraulic hose, with a max working pressure of 175 bar, is more than double the requirement of the operating pressure of our custom made pump and has the flexibility to easily navigate behind the walls of your property.

Patent Nozzle

Our discreet nozzles work by a heat sensitive bulb that when activated, discharges a water mist which removes heat and displaces oxygen from the fire providing fast and effective fire suppression.

Manual Switch

A robust and lockable isolator 230v supply switch.

Isolation Valve

Allows you to have control over the flow of water to the pump without having to knock off the machine pump.

Check Valve

This Check Valve must be approved to WRAS standards.

Demand Valve

Our Priority Demand Valve ensures that in the event of activation, water is prioritised to run directly to the pump which in turn feeds to the custom nozzles.

The IPH water mist suppression system can detect, suppress and control a fire at an early stage of development and activate an alarm including smart devices.

Operation of the system rapidly reduces the rate of production of heat and smoke, allowing more time for the occupants to escape to safety. Its compact design allows easy installation into the tightest of spaces, making it ideal for the family home.
