Water Mist Vs Sprinkler Systems
We often get asked by our clients which is better a water mist or a traditional sprinkler system? At QSD we specialise in the design, installation and maintenance of both types of systems for domestic and residential properties so for a non-biased opinion read on.
Fire suppression systems – water mist and sprinkler systems work the same way, activating when there is a fire to wet the surface of the fuel and the surrounding area to cool and supress the fire. Only the sprinkler head and mist nozzle situated in the area of the fire will release water meaning in most cases only one or two sprinkler heads are required to supress a fire.
Both types of systems have fixed pipe work and fixed concealed heads. Water mist systems discharge less water them sprinkler systems which may result in less water damage to property. This is because mist systems use pressurised water. In properties with low water flow a mist system may be more appropriate as for a traditional sprinkler system to work a water tank may be required to ensure adequate water flow.
For advice on which fire suppression system best suits your project contact QSD.

We recommend you always request a copy of qualifications when using a new trade professional and seek references of their previous work.
We are pleased to be fully qualified to design and install sprinkler systems, unfortunately there are many suppression installers who are not qualified and do not install compliant systems.
