The project in brief

In Finland, there has for a long time been a tradition to use watermist for the fire protection of care homes. Not only because watermist brings along water saving benefits and aesthetical benefits, but also because new technologies are appreciated.

It was therefore not a difficult decision for the owners of the Tähtitarhakoti Care Home to choose the VID Fire-Kill Model OH-range nozzles as their fire protection system, since it bring the latest innovative technology and designs along with sound and successfully tested  and approved performance.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

– With the low pressure watermist Model OH-range the latest technology was supplied to the project,

– Semi concealed nozzle design ensured no tampering of the nozzles and at the same time a nice finish to the false ceilings,

– The requirement for less water, and storage hereof, than traditional sprinklers.

Some specifics

Both Pendent and sidewall semi-concealed low pressure watermist nozzles from the OH-range were installed recessed within the ceiling / wall surface.
Further, a number of OH-range nozzles were installed over the false ceiling giving protection to the area above the ceilings. A VID Fire-Kill Model WAC alarm check valve was installed in the pump room giving alarm in case of fire.
