Domestic occupancy.

The iCO Water Mist Fire Suppression System was designed for the home and is used in thousands of domestic properties in the UK. iCO is the ideal solution for any single family dwelling property such as:

  • Individual dwelling house
  • Individual flat
  • Individual maisonette
  • Transportable home

Blocks of flats 18 m or less in height and with a maximum total floor area of 2,400 m2 . This height is the height of the floor of the top storey above ground. Where the fire strategy requires the communal rooms and corridors to be protected by a water mist system, then the building should be treated as a residential occupancy.

Designed with aesthetics in mind.

Our low profile misting nozzles are the most discreet on the market and designed to blend seamlessly into the ceiling.

The compact iCO pump unit will fit in almost any kitchen cupboard, or similar size space, and connects directly to the current water supply.

The compact iCO pump unit connects directly to the water mains using flexible piping and easy-fit fittings, making the system highly adaptable, cost efficient and easy to install. There is no need to upgrade the water mains or to fit an expensive water tank.

Minimal water damage.

On average iCO uses 80% less water than traditional sprinklers: minimising water damage to your home in the event of a fire, whilst providing the same performance.

The iCO system uses rapid, localised fire suppression; whereby only the nozzle nearest the fire will operate: protecting other areas of your home from unnecessary and excess water damage.

Category of system.

The designer should at an early stage determine which category of system is applicable, as this affects various design considerations, such as the water requirements for the system.
