Marioff’s HI-FOG is an advanced fire protection system that can be used for commercial and public buildings and is being tested for the North American commercial building sector. The sprinkler pump unit (SPU-6) passed a seismic qualifying test after the 7,500-pound machine was able to withstand the effects of an earthquake. The system also has low water and space requirements, making it adaptable while it controls, suppresses, or extinguishes fires by discharging a fine water mist at high velocity. Water mist also provides an efficient water curtain, which blocks the radiant heat, preventing the fire from spreading or reigniting. Smoke particles also bind with the droplets, preventing the smoke from spreading. HI-FOG uses three mechanisms to fight fire: cooling, radiant heat blocking, and local oxygen inerting. Traditional sprinkler systems use wetting as their main mechanism, and therefore use very large amounts of water. The HI-FOG is also easy to use and its configuration is flexible.
