The presentation on water mist given by IWMA general manager Bettina McDowell gives those who have not yet had the chance to have a closer look at the technology a first insight.
As with anything you acquire you want to make sure you have a good product. And especially when it comes to fire protection – something that in an emergency shall protect lives, properties and / or jobs – you want to make extra sure that you buy and integrate a system that does the job it is supposed to do.
It all started with marine and offshore applications. However, for many years water mist systems have been installed in buildings on solid ground. When it comes to the different classes of fires, water mist ticks more boxes than any other kind of fire suppression system.
Sustainability and eco-friendliness are en vogue. Everybody talks about the climate change. Everybody wants to protect nature. Earth overshoot day is coming earlier every year. So, would less actually be more? What role can watermist play in this scenario?
