The Rebirth of Water Mist Fire-Fighting Technology

The last ten years have seen considerable advancement in the commercial application ofwater mist fire suppression systems throughout the fire safety industry. This is, however, only the beginning of a market development initiative that will lead to a much higher presence of water mist fire suppression systems in the future.

The undisputed environmental advantages embodied by water mist systems will contribute to its continued success as an alternative to traditional chemical fire
extinguishing agents, such as Halon 1301 which will be completely phased out in the foreseeablefuture.

Due to these efforts to phase out Halon very soon, the fire safety community has revived the water mist technology which had been almost forgotten for decades. The regularly attested efficient fire fighting qualities of water mist accounts for its use in an increasing number of fire protection applications.
