When deciding on a Fire Protection system, the challenge is to select the right solution to match the risk. And with a wide range of fire suppression methods in the industry, it is paramount to pick the most suitable solution to help protect people and property against a wide variety of fire risks.

Get Water Mist

A dependable suppression medium for a wide range of fire applications

At IFSS, we help organizations across Africa protect what matters the most. Water Mist is one of our core fire suppression solutions—usable in a wide range of industry applications. By creating a ‘shroud of fine mist’ around the fire, the mist cools the air within the affected space and suppresses fire by removing heat from the source.

Mist Suppression at Work

An overview of how water mist is used in fire suppression

Water mist suppression delivers water as a fine atomised mist. When discharged, the mist quickly converts to steam that extinguishes fire and prevents further oxygen from reaching it. Concurrently, evaporation creates a significant cooling effect of combustion gases, blocking the transfer of radiant heat—further limiting the spread of fire, and preventing ignition.

In this way, water mist suppression combines the fire suppression properties of both conventional water-based sprinkler systems and gaseous fire suppression systems.

Applicable on Class A, B and F fires.

Water Mist’s unique fire-fighting properties makes it ideally suitable to combat a wide variety of fires, from ordinary combustibles such as paper, wood and plastics (Class A), to even the most demanding hydrocarbon liquids (Class B), as well as cooking oil (Class F).

Why Water Mist?

Environmentally friendly | Less Water Consumption
Environmentally friendly

Water mist offers an environmentally friendly fire suppression option that conserves water, has no hazardous chemicals—therefore not harmful or toxic to the environment.

With its specially designed discharge system, it has the ability to consume upto 90% less water than sprinkler systems, resulting in a much lesser clean-up process, reduced damage, and huge savings on water consumption.

Faster Heat Absorption

Water mist suppression produces fine droplets with a diameter of 0.1mm compared to sprinkler systems’ droplets of 1mm.

The smaller the droplet, the faster the rate of heat absorption and transfer, thus the quicker the cooling and suppression of fire. 

Longer Interactitivity

Further to this, water mist must not only exchange heat more rapidly, but it also should remain suspended in the air for longer, giving it more time to interact with heat and smoke—the smaller the droplets, the slower they fall from the ceiling to the floor.

Powered by Tyco Aquamist

UL and FM Approved Water Mist Fire Suppression System

When it comes to protecting you business, we go for the best. We have partnered with Johnson Controls (formerly Tyco) a global leader in Fire Protection systems. Through his partnership, we provide AquaMist,  a UL/FM approved water mist suppression system designed to help save lives, protect property and ensure business continuity.

Tested and Approved for a wide range of Industries

AquaMist ULF produces droplets of water through a range of nozzles, which are specifically engineered and approved for a variety of fire hazards. Designed to function as one dedicated fire protection system, it’s a complete engineered solution that includes pumps, valves, discharge nozzles, pipes and fittings.

Environmentally friendly AquaMist SONIC uses readily available water and nitrogen as extinguishing material. Two supersonic atomizers create 1.5 trillion superfine water droplets per second and propel them at high velocity to provide non-toxic fire suppression protection. This system also provides automatic detection and actuation and/or remote manual actuation.

As a pre-engineered cylinder or engineered pumped system, AquaMist FOG provides fire protection for class A and B fires. Because these systems reduce water consumption and pipe diameters, they are perfect for machinery spaces, as well as fragile infrastructures that requires specialist care, such as in heritage buildings, libraries and archives. This system is not yet available in North America.
