St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York, USA
St. Patrick’s Cathedral is the largest Neo-Gothic style Roman Catholic cathedral in the United States and one of New York City’s most famous buildings. Construction of the cathedral began in 1858, and it was opened after 29 years of work in 1887.
The HI-FOG® water mist fire protection system was chosen to avoid the water damage risk of a conventional sprinkler system. "Protecting irreplaceable assets in the heritage site, HI-FOG® offers fast control and fire suppression capabilities, while also minimizing the structural impact of the system’s installation in this historic building”, says Kate Monaghan from St. Patrick's Cathedral.
