Cold cut firefighting system

The cold cut firefighting system uses a portable lance apparatus to blast gravel into a structure to punch holes in a range of construction materials and deliver water into the inside of compartments, rooms, or voids within a building, creating a super-fine misting effect that can dramatically reduce the temperature and spread of a fire.

Being able to tackle a fire in this way means property can be preserved more effectively, firefighting time is dramatically cut and firefighters are safer while carrying out their duties, as the risk of backdraughts and flashovers are also reduced.
