What are the Benefits of a High-pressure Fire Mist Sprinkler System?

mist sprinkler system

On average, sprinkler systems control or extinguish around 99% of all fires once they are installed, and they can prevent the spread from destroying your property and endangering life. Although traditional fire sprinkler systems operate to detect a fire and release the appropriate amount of water needed to extinguish it, a domestic high-pressure mist sprinkler system is an alternative choice. They have plenty of benefits that make them a desirable choice, for domestic properties to gain Part B regulation compliance.

The company that installs your automatic fire sprinkler system will advise you on the very best system for your property, no matter whether you require a residential sprinkler system or various sprinkler heads for a commercial building. A domestic high-pressure mist fire sprinkler system is a popular solution to enable properties for homes to gain Part B regulation compliance.

But why are some people turning to this system rather than a traditional one?


Less Damage than Traditional Sprinkler Systems

Fire sprinkler systems are the very best form of fire suppression for all kinds of properties. Although they do dispense water, they won’t flood your property as certain myths lead you to believe. Only the sprinklers in the closest vicinity to the fire will activate and will release the appropriate amount of water without flooding your property. Although this is the case, when compared to a mist sprinkler system, there is truly no contest. These fire suppression systems release water vapour which works to displace the oxygen and remove heat. This suffocates the fire by lowering the temperature and reducing oxygen concentration so that it cannot spread.

Many people worry that installing sprinklers in their homes will result in flooding, but the water released from a traditional fire sprinkler system is nothing compared to the damage a fire can cause. Also, if a fire crew are needed, the water expelled from their hoses will do more damage than a sprinkler system. If you’re still concerned, a mist sprinkler system is the best choice for you. You can find out more about our mist systems here.


They Work to ‘Suffocate’ a Fire

When a fire breaks out, fast action is required to stop the spread and save lives. Smoke alarms alert the inhabitants of the property about a fire, but won’t put it out. Sprinklers work with your alarm to both alert people and extinguish the fire, keeping individuals and the property safe. As previously mentioned, a mist sprinkler system works to suffocate a fire rather than drench it, stopping the spread and keeping water damage to a minimum.

Also, the average water mist droplets have a surface area that is around 100 times greater than the volume of water from a traditional sprinkler system. With a mist system, you’re protecting your property and using less water, making it a sustainable option too.

Sprinkler systems, both traditional and mist, are great fire suppression systems for the environment. The work to control a fire in its earlier stages, preventing airborne pollution. Mist systems go the extra mile and don’t release as much water.


Current Standards

The current standard for Residential Fire Sprinkler systems is BS9251-21 and for mist is either BS8458-15 for residential properties or BS8489-16 for commercial properties.

I have used RAD for a couple of projects and found them to be good to deal with. They did a pair of 3 storey open plan houses and seven three and four story town houses. The sprinklers were to improve fire safety, allow more flexible space and comply with building regulations. The sprinklers were far more cost effective than the mist type systems and look very discrete when installed.

My requirement was a bit unusual for RAD in that I wanted a mist system in one room of a rented house. I had no drawings or technical back up. RAD were very helpful and repositioned the unit after the initial installation. Luckily with the help of Sonny, the engineer it all worked out very well.

As somebody who feels that it should be a necessity for all properties to have fire sprinkler systems, I am a big fan of this company. I have used them numerous times to service my home system and they are very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend their service.
