Environmental benefits of Fireworks’ fire suppression solutions
Watermist is recognised as the most environmentally sustainable fire suppression solution. That’s why environmentally-conscious organisations, such as the British Antarctic Survey and Nandos Cambridge – winner of the Sustainable Restaurants Association’s Award for Most Sustainable Restaurant – choose Fireworks. Our watermist fire suppression systems:
- Use no chemicals of any kind. Water is used for fire suppression and to lubricate pumps
- Use at least 30% fewer resources to be manufactured, due to fewer and small components
- Have lower energy requirements than traditional sprinkler systems
- Are durable! Systems we installed 25 years ago are still in operation.
- When operated use up to 90% less water than sprinkler systems
- Are assembled in the UK and some are even manufactured in the UK to cut down our carbon footprint
Reducing our carbon footprint
Our environmental roadmap aims to reduce the carbon footprint of all our operations.
- We recycle all offcuts, end of life components, paper, plastics and other recyclable materials

Fireworks believes in putting back into the community. This year, along with our sister company, Watermist, we are supporting a charity close to our hearts, with the Norfolk & Norwich Hospitals Trust.
The N&N Hospitals Charity raises money to support patients, their families and our staff at Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which includes the N&N Hospital, Jenny Lind Children’s Hospital and Cromer Hospital. Our goal this year is to raise at least £10,000 for the charity and the teams at Fireworks and Watermist are organising a series of events throughout the year to achieve this.
