A good plan is a must for optimum security fog protection
In order to carry out dimensioning and give a quote on
security fog protection, you need to draw up a plan: Are there
parts of the space that need to be covered first, or is the entire
room to be covered all at once?
Because we have four different fog cannons with their own
individual strengths, and because no two rooms are the same, there
are, of course, a wide range of possible variations with security
fog protection. There may be tall shelves in one room and a safe in
the corner in another. That is why dimensioning and quotes require
individual assessment of each room. Which valuables should be
covered first, and can the interior layout of the space help
distribute the fog?
The two main principles for security fog protection are point
protection and total protection/complete protection.
Immediate protection of the most valuable items
Point protection is the ultimate choice for immediate protection
of the most valuable items. With point protection, crucial
valuables are quickly covered in a dense, white veil of dry,
harmless fog. Point protection is ideal when you want to cover
parts of a space - such as cash boxes, jewellery displays,
cigarettes and alcohol, the key box at an auto dealership
Depending on the size of the room, everything will be covered
within seconds. However, the most important items will be covered
Matas is a good example:
The drugstore chain uses PROTECT security fog protection to cover
the expensive perfumes, make-up and other beauty products behind
the counter. Point security is used because it is not necessary to
cover the cotton buds with fog.
Total protection/complete protection: Complete and total
security fog protection
Total protection, also referred to as complete protection, is
full security fog protection of a space or a building. Total
protection can be achieved with one fog cannon or with several
cannons of the same or varying sizes.
Total protection is used
in all sectors and spaces, but especially in warehouses and office
spaces, where the valuables are spread out throughout the
If there is a risk of ram raids or vandalism, then total
protection with fog is a good idea to prevent uninvited guests from
doing any harm.
Total protection with fog is possible even in the largest
manufacturing halls and warehouses.
Datagraf is a good example. A huge 900 sq m factory building has
been converted into one large office environment. To
effectively stop computer thieves, the hall was equipped with eight
of the largest fog cannons from PROTECT.
The side effects of point protection are that the fog is
dispersed to other parts of the space in seconds and, depending on
the size of the space and the volume of the fog cannon, total
protection of the entire space can be achieved!
If the space is too large for both point protection and total
protection with one fog cannon, an additional fog cannon is often
installed for complete protection. Combining both point protection
and total protection creates the worst possible conditions for
