Benefits of a Fire Suppression Watermist System

Water mist systems are still a fairly new system in the market, and are gradually becoming more recognised by homeowners and property developers, increasing in popularity due to the ease of the system and the multiple benefits, especially when compared to fire suppression alternatives.

Water Damage

Upon activation, the iMist system uses 6L per minute of water, significantly less than traditional fire sprinkler systems, that use around 51L per minute. Meaning water damage is kept to a minimum, not affecting other properties.​

4

No Tank

Water mist systems use such a small amount of water, they can connect directly to the mains water feed. Due to this, only a small pump unit is required, which is discreet and compact enough for a kitchen cupboard!​

5

A wet-pipe system means that the hoses are always holding water, which means when called up on for activation, the response time is much faster and there is minimal delay in suppressing the fire. ​

Doing our bit for the environment

At iMist, we believe that not only should your property be protected, but doing our part to protect the environment too. We’ve designed the system to use as little water as possible in the event of a fire, and even less when the system is not in use. 

Water
Usage

Traditional fire sprinklers are run from a water tank, which will have a vast amount of water sitting in the tank for sometimes years on end, not being used. As the iMist system uses the mains water, we only call upon the water when needed, without it sitting around in a separate tank.

Firewater
Run-off

When a fire happens, this can result in a lot of different toxins and chemicals, from the fuel of the fire and the gases. The water used by fire fighters and traditional sprinkler systems will gather these toxins and chemicals, which result in firewater run-off into the environment.

Smoke
Scrubbing

Most fire related deaths are caused by the gases, such as hydrogen cyanide. The iMist system uses such small water droplets, that they work to minimise the smoke from a fire, and as a result, lowering the amount of toxic gases in the air, providing a safer escape route, and environment for firefighters on arrival.
