BS DD 8458 Part 1 has been published

BS DD 8458 Fixed fire protection systems - Residential and domestic water mist systems - Part 1: Code of practice for design and installation has now been published by BSi.

FHC can easy provide the hydraulic calculations for water mist systems designed to this British standard as way as NFPA 750 and other international water mist standards.     

This draft water mist standard is for domestic and residential properties to provide both life and property protection and it is assumed that the water mist systems will become an integrated part of the fire safety system in the building.

As the standard only allows the water mist system to be installed in buildings less than 20m in height and with a room size no larger than 8m x 4m which is the size of the test room detailed in Annex A of the standard.
