Why Should Mist Sprinklers Be Fitted in Treehouses?
When it comes to treehouses, you shouldn’t just consider the size, functionality and shape of the hut. It is important to think about fire safety, in case of an emergency. That’s where mist sprinklers can help. Find out more here.
We’re not talking about a Bart Simpson treehouse. No, the facilities for these back garden spaces have advanced and nowadays, there are so many options available. Coming in all shapes and sizes, these treehouses are ideal for young adventurers wanting their own space away from their homes. But, as accidents happen, what fire safety should there be?
Typically in residential treehouses, there is usually one entrance and exit, either by a ladder, rope or even slide. If there was a fire, it is important that it are suppressed quickly and effectively so that no exits are blocked for evacuation. Especially since it’s a separate entity to the house, where people inside may not realise there’s a fire straight away. In these situations, mist sprinklers are ideal to help. They are automatic systems which can help suppress flames before they spread further, allowing occupants to safely exit and wait for emergency services.
But, it‘s not just back gardens that utilise treehouses. Various hotels and resorts also offer treehouses for guests to stay in. A little more advanced than residential treehouses, these offer the same facilities as hotel rooms and holiday resorts, for example; full bathrooms, double bedrooms, living areas and even hot tubs.
Don’t you want your guests to feel protected throughout their stay? As families with small children may be occupying the spaces, why not give them peace of mind by stating there are mist sprinklers on site? If a fire did occur, these sprinklers are fast-acting and will help extinguish any flames before spreading. At RAD Fire Sprinklers, we have previously carried out work in treehouses. Businesses should consider these sorts of sprinklers to save their guests and employees’ lives, whilst minimising property damage. Find out more here.
For both domestic and commercial treehouses, mist sprinkler systems should be considered to ensure fire safety in even the tightest of spaces. Water misting systems utilise mist rather than jets of pressurised water.
Once the nozzle has been activated by high heat, the system will release a high-pressure water mist. This will dampen any surface and help suppress the flames before they can start to spread. They are fast-acting, automatic and require little maintenance after installation. For more information on our mist sprinkler systems, click here.
To keep up with the forest aesthetic, treehouses are mostly built out of wood. No matter how big or small the treehouse is, there will be a variety of wooden elements, which can easily catch on fire if an accident occurs. As many treehouse hotels and resorts are also in a setting that has surrounding trees, it is important that if a fire did start, the flames were dealt with automatically and efficiently before they spread.
Water mist sprinklers control, suppress, and in some cases, even extinguish fires within a building. Much like typical fire sprinkler systems, the system sprays a fine amount of mist from the sprinkler heads to cover the entire area where high heat has been detected.
Mist sprinklers are ideal for small spaces, such as the standard kitchen and loft conversions. However, this also can be translated to treehouses. Whether this is in your garden or your treehouse business, mist systems utilise the property’s water supply and ensure that the space is protected in case a fire breaks out.
