Fire protection solution for hospitals

Fast and reliable fire protection

Hospitals are complex buildings full of potential fire hazards

With their complexity and different functions, hospitals present unique challenges to fire protection. Compared to regular residential buildings, evacuating hospitals can be complicated as many of the people who need to be evacuated are unable to evacuate on their own because of their physical condition. Modern hospitals, large or small, are dynamic places full of electrical equipment, flammable chemicals as well as many other fire hazards, and a proper fire suppression system that is capable of coping with a variety of hazards is crucial to minimize damage, operation downtime, and loss of life. The VID FIREKILL low pressure watermist system offers complete protection for hospitals and medical facilities while keeping water damage and operation downtime to a minimum. The system only uses potable water ensuring a safe environment for patients and hospital employees. The low water and power requirements and flexibility of the low pressure watermist system make it an ideal solution for installation in both new and existing hospitals.
