HI-FOG® is the trade name of the high-pressure water mist fire protection system developed, manufactured and delivered by Marioff.
The HI-FOG® Water Mist Fire Protection System can be used in place of deluge, gas, foam, dry chemical, traditional sprinkler and any other type of fixed fire protection system. It is efficient against most types of fires.
HI-FOG® controls, suppresses and extinguishes fires by discharging a fine water mist at high velocity. The water mist is made by the system when it activates: it pushes the plain, potable water at high pressure through specially designed, patented HI-FOG® sprinkler and spray heads. The water mist is discharged at high velocity by high-pressure pumps or accumulators.
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.
HI-FOG® uses water much more efficiently: it uses up to 90% less water than traditional sprinkler systems for the same application with equivalent or better performance.
