The FlexiFOG micro accommodation water mist system is designed to protect public space, cabins, corridors and storage areas by providing a fire suppression system with lowweight, using less power and water.
The Trondheim, Norway-based manufacturer claims the pump pressure of the new system is 20% of similar high-pressure systems, and combined with its low water consumption, the power consumption is reduced more than 50%.
It cites an example of the product on a medium sized ferry with approximately 1,500 nozzles, enabling a weight reduction of approximately two tons. The back-up tank for one minute operation covering 280sq mtr is reduced by over 70% compared to traditional sprinkler systems, says Autronica, whilst the weight of the zone valves is more thann 50% lighter.
Additionally, the control system can be integrated with the company's AutroSafe fire detection system allowing the bridge control of the vessel's entire fire protection system on one computer screen.
