HIGH PRESSURE WATERMIST
FOR TALL BUILDINGS

Fireworks has been a trusted partner for the design, provision, testing and maintenance of high pressure water mist systems to the UK’s leading constructors, governmental organisations and local authorities for over 25 years. Whether high rise, heritage buildings, offices or hotels, our clients benefit from our years of experience to advise them and provide solutions specifically tailored to their requirements, timescale and budget.

High rise buildings require the highest levels of expertise in fire suppression systems, as they present greater risk of smoke, heat and fire rapidly travelling across and between levels. Stairwells, elevator shafts, interior and exterior furnishings, electrical installations, air conditioning ducts and building usage are all contributing fire risk factors that need to be taken into consideration when designing a fire system.

High pressure watermist is proven to be the fastest and most efficient system for extinguishing smoke, fire and heat rapidly. Protect your personnel, residents and assets with our field-proven and recommended systems. Contact our experts to discuss your projects.

Engineering for a safer tomorrow:

From a modern high-rise building to a state-of-the-art university SEM-SAFE® highpressure water mist is the optimum fire fighting solution for any building type. The breakthrough that high-pressure water mist represents is to use the same method as traditional sprinklers, but to add the effect of converting the water into steam. 
This means that the cooling effect is up to seven times higher than for traditional sprinklers. Combined with the oxygen displacement effect, this can reduce water consumption significantly compared to traditional sprinkler.

Reaching even higher:

Simplicity in design, obtained by using the most advanced technologies, results in the highest operation reliability. All our products are made of first-class materials and in a comprehensively tested design.

The intelligent use of water

How does it work

For a fire to survive, it relies on the presence of the three elements of the ‘fire triangle’: oxygen, heat and combustible material.

The removal of any one of these elements will extinguish a fire.

The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system goes further. It attacks two elements of the fire triangle: oxygen and heat.

The uniqueness of high-pressure water mist is that it combines the suppression effect of gas and sprinkler systems. As well as removing the oxygen like a gas a gas system it simultaneously cools the fire like a traditional sprinkler. The cooling effect additionally lowers the risk of re-ignition.

A unique fire fighting system

The SEM-SAFE® high-pressure water mist system is a unique fire fighting system. When water is forced through nozzles, at high-pressure, a super-fine mist is formed that has a two-fold extinguishing effect. As well as cooling the fire like a traditional sprinkler, it simultaneously starves the fire of oxygen like gas systems. When the mist comes into contact with flames, it evaporates and expands minimum 1,700 times. The dense vapour created displaces the flames and quickly extinguishes the fire.

The Tall Builldings Conference 2020

We are proud to be involved in The Tall Buildings Conference on 18th November and are an Award Sponsor of the Client of the Year. 

This award recognises clients who have displayed outstanding leadership and commitment to procure based on whole-life costs, achieving faultless, quick delivery. The client should have led exceptional integration in a collaborative working environment, providing outstanding health and safety practices and fair terms between all stakeholders, supply chain partners and the local community.

The awards celebrate those that are developing unique design and engineering solutions to maximise space in city centres where demand is high whilst creating a legacy of iconic superstructures that are transforming the UK’s built environment.

To meet the current restrictions, the Tall Buildings Awards have been integrated into the virtual Tall Buildings Conference agenda – and are being hosted by awards judge – Mark Wakeford.

We wish all entrants the best of luck in their individual categories.
