Water Mist Systems

At Hiller, our mission is to minimize your downtime while protecting your assets. In order to provide the most efficient and safe fire protection on the water, Hiller provides state-of-the-art water mist protection technology. Approved for marine use, Hiller Water Mist, a Securiplex technology, uses a fraction of the water used by conventional sprinklers and is well suited for the protection of a wide range of special hazards. Reduced post-discharge damage and clean up as well as simple recharge provide for less downtime, while clean and green technology poses no risk to your crew and assets. Hiller Water Mist is cost effective and provides the most protection of your personnel, equipment and productivity.

Hiller Water Mist Fire Suppression

Securiplex is Now Hiller Water Mist

Using technology developed by Securiplex, Hiller Water Mist specializes in the manufacture of water mist systems as fire protection solutions. To date, our systems have been in high profile installations such as the New York subway system, the British/Franco Euro or Channel tunnel, the navies of the USA, Canada, United Kingdom and more.

As pioneers of the fire suppression industry, we are at the forefront of innovation and development. Hiller Water Mist, formerly Securiplex, helped to establish North American industrial water fog/mist technology by working with FM to develop the appropriate test protocols and – in 1995 – received the first FM-approval ever issued for a water mist / fog fire protection system. Our state-of-the-art systems provide the performance, efficiency and reliability needed to ensure that your people, equipment and operations remain safe and productive. Government testing has proven that our systems surpass all other major manufacturers in extinguishment times. Water Mist Systems have a variety of applications and benefits as seen below.

Water Mist Fire Suppression Systems: Advanced Fire Protection for  Cultural, Heritage, Museums, and Special Hazards   

Are you in search of a highly effective and versatile fire protection solution for  a historic or cultural property, museum,  irreplaceable artifacts, unique industrial hazard? Our water mist suppression systems offer advanced defense against  a variety of fire hazards, ensuring swift and effective response in the event of a fire emergency. Water Mist systems are ideal because they are an effective, environmentally safe, highly efficient fire protection system that leads to less damage, reduced water run-off, and minimal clean up.

Importance of Water Mist Suppression Systems

Water mist suppression systems play a critical role in fire protection for diverse environments by:

  • Versatile Application: Suitable for a wide range of special hazards including marine applications, valuable assets, property, and industrial hazards. Water Mist provides comprehensive and effective fire protection.
  • Minimal Water Usage: Utilizing minimal clean water, reducing the risk of water damage to equipment and property, and minimizing water run-off during fire incidents.
  • Rapid Suppression: Swiftly extinguishing fires, minimizing damage and ensuring the safety of occupants.

Benefits of Water Mist Suppression Systems

Implementing a water mist suppression system offers a multitude of advantages, including:

  •  Speed of Installation: Water mist systems use small tubing or pipe compared to conventional water sprinkler systems, making it possible to conceal the pipe and reducing installation time.
  •  Reduces Post Water Damage: Water Mist Systems use a fraction of the amount of water conventional water sprinkler systems use which minimizes any water damage and reduces water run-off.
  • Environmentally Friendly : Utilizing minimal water and  reducing the need for cleanup ensuring minimal environmental impact.
  • Cost Effective : Low cost and expense for small volumes of potable water.  

How Water Mist Suppression Systems Work

Water mist suppression systems operate by releasing a fine mist of water droplets, which rapidly evaporate and absorb heat. The oxygen at the source of the fire is also displaced by the quick evaporation of the water droplets causing a depletion of oxygen effectively suppressing the fire.  

Installation Process

Our expert team follows a meticulous process to ensure the seamless installation of water mist suppression systems:

  • Thorough Assessment: Conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the environment to determine the most effective system layout and coverage.
  • Customized Design: Tailoring the system to address the unique fire risks present in the environment, ensuring optimal protection.
  • Professional Installation: Deploying the system with precision and expertise, adhering to industry standards and regulations for reliable performance.

Maintenance Requirements

Regular maintenance is required by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and is crucial for the  proper functionality of water mist suppression system. Our services encompass:

  • Scheduled Inspections: Periodic checks to ensure the system’s readiness and compliance with safety standards.
  • Component Servicing: Addressing any issues and maintaining system components to uphold reliable performance.
  • Regulatory Compliance: Ensuring adherence to all relevant regulations and standards through diligent maintenance practices.
