There is clear evidence that water mist sprinklers are effective in stopping fires spreading and putting them out, reducing the amount of damage to both the property and the environment, as well as saving lives.
The patented iCO® water mist system has extinguished no less than five fires in the past six months, further proving the effectiveness and safety benefits of having a fire suppression system installed in your home or any residential property, such as care homes and apartment buildings.
As well as protecting the occupants of each property, the iCO® fire suppression system has effectively extinguished each fire without causing excess water damage or damage to the environment.
