AQUASYS – Fire Fighting with High Pressure Water Mist – AQUASYS is one of the leading manufacturers of highly efficient and environmentally friendly fire fighting systems based on high pressure water mist. Successfully verified by a lot of real scale fire tests the innovative technology is able to fight against solid as well as liquid fires like fuel and oil very fast and efficiently. Spreading out of the fire is effectively prevented by simultaneous and three dimensional expansion of the water mist and the associated cooling effect. Safety in infrastructure like road tunnels, high availability of data centers and high class industrial facilities and the protection of valuable historical buildings are representing some of our applications.
