How Water Mist Systems Work

Our domestic and residential water mist systems are small, automatic suppressors that activate at 57 degrees.

They are designed to tackle all kinds of fires, including domestic appliances, electrical distribution and most materials.

Our water mist systems are made up of tiny water droplets that produce a mist output.

Unlike traditional sprinklers, like fire sprinklers, a mist sprinkler uses specialist mist nozzles that are powered by high pressure water mist systems. This delivery method fights fire effectively, but also provides reduced water damage in the property.

Amongst the wide range of options for fire protection systems, This is what makes a mist sprinkler an appropriate option for residential and domestic properties. All while maintaining a reliable fire safety option.

These small, atomised water droplets allow the water mist to suppress fires by:

  • Cooling both flames and gases through water evaporation

  • Reducing Oxygen levels through water evaporation

  • Reduces radiant heat through heat absorption by the water droplets themselves


The use of Water Mist Systems in the UK has expanded drastically over the last few years and this is largely due to its many advantages:
