Sometimes less is more. For some applications, water mist systems use significantly less water than traditional fire protection methods. FM Approvals has been at the forefront of this technology from its inception in the early 1990s. Water mist systems that are certified by FM Approvals have undergone full-scale fire testing for specific applications as well as component-by-component evaluations.
Each system is designed with specific criteria for each application. The systems are sensitive to alterations of those criteria so it is important to only install a water mist system in accordance with the manufacturer’s design, installation and maintenance manual.
