Fires don’t play by the rules

By: Danfoss

A fire can occur anywhere, anytime with no respect for rules or regulations. And the consequences for both humans and assets can be catastrophic.

No matter where the fire breaks out: onboard a ship, in a crowded building, offshore, or in essential infrastructure there is a great demand for a safe, efficient, and immediate activating firefighting system.

Using high-pressure water mist is one of the most effective ways to fight fires. And at the same time, the mist isn’t as devastating to the immediate surroundings and assets than tons of water spread by traditional sprinklers.
