Watermist fire suppression systems have demonstrated their value in assisting the protection of life and property in industrial and commercial applications for many years. The advent of watermist nozzles that operate at an earlier stage in the development of a fire, together with the recognition that the largest numbers of deaths from fire occur in the home, have led to the introduction of watermist fire suppression systems specifically designed for residential and domestic occupancies.

A correctly designed, installed and properly maintained watermist fire suppression system can detect, suppress and control a fire at an early stage of development, and activate an alarm.

This British Standard accordingly covers design, installation, water supplies, maintenance and testing of residential and domestic watermist fire suppression systems installed to reduce the risk to life.

Compliance Testing

The test criteria is equivalent and comparative to the sprinkler standard of BS9251. The iMist Ltd STX12 system was independently tested in May 2015 and surpassed all the required criteria of the BS8458-1 document. The testing comprises of five rigorous live fire simulations.
