Koolfog Explains The Importance of Incorporating Misting Systems in Early Stages of Building
October 01, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Lifestyle NewsOctober 1, 2015 - Pre-planning is important in almost every project and misting systems are no exception. From functional design to aesthetics to costs, when you incorporate misting from the beginning of your build process, you can help incorporate the best technology and design for your commercial or residential misting system projects. With extensive experience with misting systems nationwide, Bryan Roe, founder and president of Koolfog, shares some of the benefits.
You should always begin the process by looking at the overall project and how a misting system will work best. How big is the space? Is the water supply sufficient? What is the power availability? What is the exposure to the elements? When we are able to collaborate with architects and contractors at the design phase, we can advise on the best placement of equipment and components for the best functionality and performance. When working with a unique area, we can customize innovative features to ensure a successful outcome.
Performance may be the ultimate priority, but aesthetics are a close second. Involvement in the design stages allows misting systems to be integrated into the structure of the space. Pipes and nozzles can be well hidden and mounting unobtrusive in the misting system design. Koolfog has worked with clients to customize systems and components, or worked with alternative placement so as to not interfere with the look and feel of the space.
Incorporating a misting system in the planning stage can often help to control the ultimate cost of the system. It's much easier to plan ahead, anticipating spacing and needs, rather than dealing with retrofitting a system and having to deal with what is already in place. Misting systems also can be incorporated as a standard option for new build homes, creating a revenue source for contractors and builders.
As with any part of your residential or commercial project, planning ahead can provide for better design while also helping to avoid later challenges. Without proper planning and installation, retrofitting a misting system can present issues with regards to infrastructure and performance.
