AbstractRecent research at Canada's Institute for Research in Construction (IRC) will have implications for the use of water-mist systems as a replacement for halon in certain circumstances. Following the ban on halon production by the Montreal Protocol, IRC's Fire Risk Management Program, in partnership with the Department of National Defence (DND), has been looking for alternative fire-suppression systems to use as replacements for existing equipment and in future designs. It is of primary importance that the use of such systems does not compromise the firefighting effectiveness currently provided by halon, have negative implications for the environment nor create unacceptable safety risks.
