EconAqua provides peace of mind

Car parks are buildings which in themselves present special problems when a fire takes place. The building design creates natural horizontal and vertical flues. Fire hazards include flammable liquids and easily ignitable combustibles, having a high fire load, including plastics, rubber, etc. As such, the high fire load is a concern, as well as the danger of the fire growing rapidly in early stages, and with it, toxic smoke penetration into perceived escape routes.

The Viking EconAqua water mist system provides a dependable and effective means of fire protection for car parks.

Fire-safe living and working should be the goal for all building owners. Water mist systems offer a proven solution that is clean, cost-effective and that reduces risk - giving owners peace of mind.
