Recently water mist systems have gained popularity in the UK. People in the UK are moving away from the traditional fire protection systems in favour of a water mist fire suppression system. This is due to the ample benefits that the system offers, in addition to the swift fire extinguishing properties the system boasts.
Before delving into the many reasons people in the UK are trusting the mist suppression system, IPH Mist Suppression explains to you what a water mist system is.
An Overview of the Water Mist System
A water mist system is an incredible fire extinguishing system that discharges a fine spray of water droplets through a designed patented and discreet nozzle. The nozzle breaks the stream of water into hundreds, thousands and millions of microdroplets that create a mist.
In case of a fire break out, the water removes heat and suffocates the oxygen from the affected area that helps suppress and put out the fire. The water mist decreases the temperature of the area and removes oxygen to the extent that no combustion can take place.
Reasons for the Increasing Popularity of the Water Mist System
A water mist suppression system is an advanced fire protection system that causes less damage to the surroundings and quickly extinguishes the fire. Apart from its futuristic design and functionality, there are other reasons for its increasing popularity in the UK. These are:
Free of Chemicals
Since the water mist system uses only water, it is a safer system that has no traces of chemicals in it. The use of chemicals in a fire suppression system can further harm nearby residents by increasing pollutants that might cause breathing problems.
Less Damage To Property
The water blanket that the mist forms is a thin cloud that is fast at absorbing and removing the heat. Water from traditional sprinklers (that have been around for decades) damages the electrical appliances and other items within the property. The misty cloud blanket from a water mist system minimizes the loss to property through dreadfull water damage that other systems can be held to account.
No-Risk of Asphyxiation
The gas fire suppression system causes loss of oxygen that results in unconsciousness among people. Sometimes the smoke and lack of oxygen also result in deaths because of suffocation. The water mist system, on the other hand, poses no risk of asphyxiation.
Easy Clean-Ups and Environment-Friendly
You don’t have to deal with a pool of water with all your belongings drowned in it. The clean-up sessions with the mist suppression system are less tiresome as there is less mess to deal with. A water mist system activates more quickly and does not release any toxic fumes that can be fatal or result in breathing issues. No such components are released that might have an impact on the environment. Even with low water consumption, the water mist systems are designed to work efficiently in any family home or suitable commercial property.
