Benefits of a watermist system
Watermist systems offer many benefits. One of the key benefits is water usage. Compared to traditional sprinkler systems, watermist systems use approximately 85% less water. The reduced water consumption makes the systems more sustainable. In addition, watermist systems only use potable water as a suppression agent and are therefore harmless to people. By using less water, the watermist systems ensure minimal water damage to buildings and the interior and minimize interruptions and downtime as well as the financial cost of a fire.
Watermist systems are cost-effective. The systems are easier and cheaper to install and maintain than traditional sprinkler systems. This is due to watermist systems can be designed with smaller components and smaller diameter pipes. The water storage tanks for watermist systems are smaller than those required for traditional sprinklers, and therefore, require less storage space. In case of facility expansion, the watermist systems can be easily retrofitted and extended.
