The importance of Fire Suppression in your home.

Fires are a serious, life-threatening situation for people living in Residential & Domestic buildings.

They are one of the leading causes of death in the home, and capable of destroying an entire property in a matter of minutes. Even a small fire can cause a great deal of damage, as well as being difficult to extinguish.

According to a study – There were 311 fire-related fatalities in Great Britain during 2020/21. That is 22 more fatalities than the previous years reporting, where there were 289 fire-related fatalities.

Research also shows that the danger of death from house fires mostly affects people in the most vulnerable sections of society; those who cannot self-evacuate from a fire (Such as the elderly or disabled).

When it comes to protecting your home from a fire, a water mist fire suppression system is one of the most effective tools you can take advantage of.

  1. Water mist fire suppression systems create a fine mist of water droplets that can quickly extinguish a fire.
  2. The mist is created by a pump that forces water through a nozzle at high pressure.
  3. When the mist comes into contact with the flames, it cools the fire and prevents it from spreading.

One of the biggest advantages of a water mist fire suppression system is their effectiveness at extinguishing fires in their early stages. The high pressure mist rapidly cools the fire, working as a preventative measure of spreading.

These systems are modern and effective, yet discreetly designed to suit any home layout and style. They can also be personalised to fit a rooms aesthetics.
