The Project in Brief

The historical building ‘Djäknehuset’ in the center of Skara, Sweden, has been converted into the town’s new city hall. The unique building, dating back to 1871, is highly valued by the residents of Skara and it was therefore important to retain the aestetics and the architecture of the building during the conversion process.



To protect the historical landmark and preserve the aesthetics of the building VID Fire-Kill was asked to provide the fire protection.

Because of its small dimension pipes and easily concealable nozzles the Fire-Kill low pressure watermist Atrium system was installed.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

  • The system offers an almost hidden installation,
  • In case of fire and activation the low pressure watermist ensures less water damage,
  • Low water requirements,
  • Low power requirements.

Some specifics

To blend in with the surroundings of the hall, the nozzles were provided in brass.
