Aesthetic fire protection

The FIREKILL™ NEPTUN OH sidewall nozzles are installed recessed into the bulkhead with the nozzle rosette flush with the surface and the nozzle Cover Plate protruding 10-15 mm from the surface, being the only visible parts of the nozzle in its daily use or directly into a visible pipe system in retrofit cases. The FIREKILL™ NEPTUN OH nozzles can be delivered in different paint and finishes making the system blend in with almost any type of surface, securing the aesthetics of the surroundings.



The FIREKILL™ NEPTUN OH system for protection of cabins is unique as it requires very low water pressures and water flow rates. The system utilizes the Automatic Low-Pressure Watermist Nozzles Model OH-SWC which are patented automatic, fine water spray nozzles. The OH-SWC nozzle creates a homogenous fine watermist, which absorbs heat, reduces radiant heat and causes oxygen depletion near the fire, which in turn controls and suppresses the fire. This homogenous mist consists of a high concentration of very small droplets. Because of the small mass of the droplets, the nozzle creates a large coverage, further minimizing the water expenditures and hydrating nearby combustibles.

Test and Approvals

DnV MED-B and UK MER-B Approval

The FIREKILL™ NEPTUN OH-SWC has been tested in accordance with IMO Resolution MSC.265(84) for cabins. The FIREKILL™ NEPTUN OH-SWC can therefore be used for IMO Occupancy classification (6) Accommodation space minor fire risk, (7) Accommodation spaces of moderate fire risk, (9) Sanitary & similar spaces
