A Superior Solution

Halo is manufactured by an ISO 9001-certified OEM manufacturer in the UK.

Our industry experience has taught us the value of automatic fire protection in the real world.

We know the practical limitations of conventional sprinklers and pre-engineered water-mist systems in homes – not to mention the drawbacks of passive options, like compartmentation and fire doors (which are often left open).

Which is why we developed our own active fire suppression system – and made sure that Halo is both effective and economical for homes of all types.

In independent tests, Halo’s performance more than satisfied the stringent requirements laid down in BS 8458 for high-pressure water-mist systems in residential properties of individual open spaces of up to 32m2, and in domestic properties, up to 80m2.

Halo overcomes the difficulties associated with conventional water sprinklers and some alternative high-pressure mist systems:

  • No additional storage tanks required
  • No false alarms associated with electronic activation
  • Water damage is minimised as Halo runs on a fraction of the flow used by water sprinklers. Only the nozzle nearest a fire activates (or two if the fire is between them).
  • Compact and lightweight elements avoid the heavy disruption and cost of retro-fitting conventional sprinklers.
  • The risks of obstacles and shadow areas that can compromise a wall-mounted spray head or sensor are also avoided.
