How Are Mist Sprinkler Systems Utilised?

mist sprinkler system

There are various types of sprinkler systems and fire sprinkler heads available that suit different properties and dwellings. From concealed sprinkler heads for residential properties to larger, more upright sprinkler systems for industrial warehouses, these particular fire suppression systems are the very best choice for keeping the inhabitants of your property safe and keeping water and fire damage to a minimum. Most high-quality sprinkler systems dispense water at the first sign of heat to tackle the blaze at the source, but water mist sprinkler systems work a little differently…

Traditional sprinkler systems are incredibly popular and can be designed and installed to fit your property’s dimensions exactly. Mist sprinkler systems are installed in the same way, but they work in a different yet equally effective way when it comes to extinguishing fires. To find out more about mist fire sprinkler installation and utilisation, we need to understand exactly how they work and where they’ll be most effective.


How Do They Work?

Mist sprinkler systems use fine water droplets to extinguish fires rather than using heavier streams of water. The small mist droplets lead to a larger surface area which in itself absorbs heat more effectively. They also work to cool down the flames and gases using evaporation, displacing the oxygen. Mist systems are incredibly reliable, cooling down the room temperature and producing steam to stop the fire in its tracks, preventing harmful spreads. The steam then suffocates the fire, suppressing and controlling the blaze at the source.

Fire mist sprinkler systems are a popular option in a number of dwellings, as they decrease the amount of water that is required and also the amount of water damage that can be inflicted upon a property. The amount of stored water can be considerably reduced also. They also activate quickly and use thinner pipes to make the fire sprinkler installation process a whole lot smoother.


Where Are Fire Mist Systems Most Beneficial?

Water mist systems are a popular option in several buildings, particularly offices and commercial buildings as well as residential and domestic properties. Residential fire sprinkler systems tend to come with concealed sprinkler heads in order for them to blend discreetly into the interior decor. It is always recommended that office spaces have sprinklers (or mist sprinkler systems) installed, allowing for accurate and reliable fire protection that can safeguard your staff and property.

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.
