Aesthetic fire protection

The FIREKILL™ OH sidewall nozzles are installed recessed into the wall 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™ 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 nozzles can also be delivered with logo print.



The FIREKILL™ system for protection of ordinary hazard OH1 is unique as it requires very low water pressures and water flow rates. The system utilizes the Automatic Low-Pressure Watermist Nozzles Model OH-SW3 which are patented automatic sidewall, fine water spray nozzles. The OH-SW3 nozzle create 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.
