Caption: Gas-pressurised triggered water barrier being tested in the 1970s. Such systems were developed for use to extinguish fires. The flames of a fire trigger a charge that disrupts a diaphragm barrier, leading to a release of water under pressure. This water extinguishes the fire. This research was carried out by what is today the UK's Health and Safety Laboratory (HSL). Photographed in the 1970s.
