Product Description

The VID Fire-Kill Model F102-1 low pressure watermist Nozzle is a telescopic pop-up nozzle utilizing low pressure watermist to provide fire protection in aircraft hangar areas below the aircrafts. The nozzle is installed embedded into the hangar floor, flush with the surrounding surface. This protects the nozzles in standby position but enables them to perform as needed if a fire occurs. Once pressure is added to the nozzle pipes, the nozzle will elevate from the floor and spray watermist into a 2 by 4 meter area.
