What is a fog cannon and how can it improve my site security?
A fog cannon is a security measure that can fill a room with a harmless but opaque fog in just a few seconds, averting an intruder’s efforts to access assets or information, minimising loss in the event of an intrusion. This is particularly useful for locations that hold high-value assets (for example, a jewellers, bank or museum), or an isolated shop where personnel may be at risk from criminality (for example, convenience stores operating out of hours.)
A security fog system can be installed in any position and covertly mounted to avoid detection or vandalism. Amthal’s Fog Cannons can produce a dry fog for one minute at full speed and operate periodically to maintain zero visibility. It offers the longest backup battery on the market, operating for up to three hours. The volume of fog can be scaled up or down to be appropriate for any size of setting – from a small room to large warehousing units. The fog will not damage your building or interiors.
Fog cannons can be an effective way to detain an intruder on site and await police presence without putting personnel at risk. Smoke protection is also a consideration for some insurers, and can result in a lower insurance premium for an organisation.
Working with Amthal on selecting and installing a fog cannon
Security smoke protection can be operated as a standalone solution, or linked to a remotely-monitored intruder alarm system as part of holistic security measures.
Our technical team can work with you to assess your location and assert how a fog cannon would work best for your needs.
We can even offer a demonstration at your premises, as fog protection is extremely convincing when you witness it yourself. A free demonstration of a fog cannon will only take around half an hour, and will allow us to demonstrate its efficacy in theft prevention.
