WATER MIST FIRE PROTECTION
Chubb provide water mist systems that provide an exceptional fire suppression solution, utilising a very fine water spray that quickly turn into vapor, absorbing heat and energy from a fire.
Using less water than traditional sprinkler systems, the discharge of water at high pressure through special nozzles creates a fine mist that can act more efficiently than conventional systems for certain applications. Selecting the right water mist system is also about caring for the contents of the building and minimising water damage. When utilised as part of a wider fire safety system, mist-based fire suppression systems allow you to fine-tune your approach to fire suppression, tailored to your exact needs. Chubb offers approved tailor-made fire solutions for specific applications such as industrial fryer protection and machinery spaces.
Beyond suppressing the fire as quickly and effectively as possible, not all premises and environments have the same needs in a fire. Certain fire suppression systems may cause additional water damage to stock, records or technology that could be on a par – or worse – than the fire itself.
Mist-based systems have a far lower application rate than a traditional sprinkler system – meaning less water is used to suppress the fire – greatly reducing the risk of water damage.
For this reason, mist systems are typically used in areas where higher-value assets are stored. Similarly, they are commonly installed in occupied areas, reducing the risk of harm that can be caused in cold weather when people are stood outside in wet clothes after evacuating the building.
If you’re unsure of the best approach to take for the fire suppression systems on your premises, and how to best safeguard your assets from water damage in the event of a fire, Chubb can help.
