SUPREME COURT
LAW LIBRARY

The Ministry of Justice required a 21st century fire protection system to protect the nationally important central law library within the main building.

Project:

A key requirement of the design was that the fire protection system should be largely unseen, blending in with the antique style library furniture and bookshelves.

Solution

Following competitive evaluation and extensive testing, water mist was selected for this project.

Testing

Live fire tests with the water mist system demonstrated that stored materials suffered very minimal water damage and it was noted that the water mist system provided a greater level of fire suppression than other competing suppression systems.

Visual Impact

The requirement for minimal aesthetic impact of the system was easily satisfied by incorporating the nozzles within an existing suspended light rail. The water mist system supply piping was hidden above the bookcases and behind architectural wall mountings.

Conclusion

The overall project Architects, Feilden & Mawson, were impressed by the experience and data that Fireworks were able to provide ensured that this project was
carried out smoothly and to the entire satisfaction of all parties.
