The UK Water Mist Seminar 2016

Published:  08 October, 2015

EVENT LAUNCH: The British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association, the Fire Industry Association and the International Water Mist Association have joined forces to increase understanding of the power of water mist. 

The event will take place at BRE in Watford on 8 March 2016 and there will be no admission fee.

During the one-day seminar speakers will explain the technology and list fields of application as well as talk about practical aspects such as maintenance requirements. Delegates will also be able to update their knowledge on standards, guidelines and approvals and listen to the insurance industry’s point of view.

‘Fire protection using water mist is a maturing technology. This conference aims to educate and inform on how, why and where water mist fire protection works, and advise on best available practice being adopted  by the industry leaders and reflected in the new British Standards. Specifiers, designers, engineers, and auditors will benefit from the knowledge shared on the understanding of water mist fire protection technology and its effective application for domestic, residential, commercial and industrial applications,’ said Bob Whiteley, Chairman British Standard FSH18/5 Watermist Committee.

The call for papers has just been released and the full programme will be published in December.
