The Q1 Watermist Suppression System

The Q1 from Q-Fog is a new type of easily installed, enhanced fire protection system developed for existing living environments with a heightened need for fire protection.


E.G. for the elderly, vulnerable, people with dementia or other disabilities in the care sector or in their own home.


The product is specifically designed and fully fire tested to offer a fire protection system that is reliable, simple and cost effective.The basic version of the Q-Fog Q1 shown in the picture offers active fire protection in a room of approx. 25m2. 

High pressure water mist technology offers very effective fire suppression while minimising water damage to buildings and belongings. 

The Q1 requires no permanent installation allowing for low installation and running costs and minimal maintenance.

The Q1 unit has been subject to successful full scale fire testing at VTT Technical Research Centre in Finland (2009) and passed its original testing at SINTEF (Now RISE Fire Research Association) Test report #102201.38 of October 3, 2007. The report contains an evaluation of the results reached with Q-Fog AB’s system Q1 in trials performed at SINTEF NBL in October 2005. The tests were performed as a part of the project: “Water mist systems in care homes – A mapping of what effect mobile and easy movable water mist system has on fire safety in care homes”.
