The World´s First Dedicated Sauna Fire Suppression System

The Saunasafe is the World´s first specific fire suppression system for Sauna´s, and has now achieved third party approval from the world renowned Danish Fire Laboratories (DFL) testing house in Svendborg along with an endorsement from the Global insurance giants, Zurich.

The Saunasafe Low pressure water mist system, was tested under strict conditions and to a draft approval, which was independently verified and given the high accolade of “acceptable” by Zurich´s experienced Fire Risk aversion team.

In recent years, the major loss caused by fires developing within Sauna´s, has risen dramatically to the extent that there is now a need for a practical and cost effective fire system to meet this specific risk.

The Flamefast Saunasafe has been created to respond to an unprecedented demand from both potential clients and major Insurers.

  • Rapid suppression of the fire
  • Low pressure water mist
  • Quick and easy installation/retro fit
  • Space saving system
  • Cost effective solution
  • Can be interfaced into Fire alarm/BMS
  • Environmentally friendly

This unique system picks up from existing water supplies and in the event of the system operating, will shut down this supply and dedicate the water to the fire system.

Air from the sauna is monitored whilst the Sauna is in operation, by the unique multi sensor, and in the event of smoke being detected the Saunasafe will operate an audible alarm, and also shut down the power to the Sauna heater, with the emphasis on preventing the fire.

Should the smouldering product catch fire, the sensor will detect this and operate the Saunasafe suppression system, releasing low pressure water mist directly onto the risk area (heater and surrounds) and also into and across the internal parts of the Sauna. Due to the nature of sauna construction, it may be necessary to provide primary and secondary detection and protection, which will operate from the same unit.

The introduction of the water mist, rapidly cools the ambient temperature and removes oxygen thus creating “inerting” which quickly suppresses and extinguishes the fire. The power is instantly shut down to the heater to remove any further heat and adverse reaction of water on the electrics.

The devastation caused by a Sauna Fire, which are often started through the discarding of flammable items and liquids making contact with heating elements. Electrical faults have also attributed to many recent major fires. Either way, the damage from the smoke alone can cause tens of thousands of pounds worth of damage, not to mention the on-going loss of revenue, which often runs into six figures.
