FOGTEC High Pressure Water Mist
High pressure water mist systems (FOGTEC)
Certain buildings require the most technologically advanced fire protection. That’s our FOGTEC high pressure water mist system.
When there are particularly valuable contents, or the building structure needs more protection, high pressure systems prove the best option. They use much less water than conventional sprinklers and they’re more effective at smothering the fire rapidly.
The FOGTEC high pressure water mist system typically works under pressures between 70-130 bar. It requires just 10% of the water a sprinkler system needs, resulting in significantly smaller tanks and pipework. It’s a huge advantage when you’re upgrading the fire protection in an existing building or when there’s limited space.
We’ve designed and installed high pressure systems for many different locations including museums, theatres, cable tunnels, data centres and engine test cells.

Less damage, less downtime
FOGTEC combines the benefits of gas suppression and conventional sprinkler systems.
The system disperses incredibly fine water droplets (classed as NFPA 750 Class 1) from specialist nozzles. Atomising the water at high pressure, the surface area available for cooling is much greater than from a low pressure system. Heat is therefore extracted more rapidly, minimising damage from fire and radiant heat.
Water mist shields also protect construction elements such as walls, doorways, and facades.
Coupled with extracting heat, high pressure water mist vaporises faster than a low pressure system. The steam generated increases water volume by 1640 times, removing oxygen and disabling the fire at source. It’s the same effect as dispensing a fire extinguisher.
Such a rapid and comprehensive response ensures minimum damage to contents and equipment, getting your business back up and running with the least possible downtime.
High pressure water mist systems reduce damage from smoke too as they clean the particles in the air, removing smoke.
Where can you use a FOGTEC system?
Requiring less space and quick to install, high pressure water mist systems are ideal for many situations:
- Heritage buildings, museums, and art galleries
- Hotels and theatres
- Data centres and computer control rooms
- Engine test cells and hydraulic pits
- Cable tunnels
Your installation will involve specialist stainless steel pipe fitters and commissioning engineers. We’ll also provide you with our method statements, risk assessments and health and safety policies. At Compco, we deliver the very highest standards of workmanship.
