Automist®: better fire safety, unlocking valuable upgrades to homes

Automist® is a smart alternative to fire sprinklers, designed for the home. Because Automist® radically improves home fire safety, it also sets you free under Building Regulations to create a wide range of modern home layouts. Intelligent Mist is the foremost specialist installer of this cutting-edge firefighting system in London and the South-East of England.

The right improvements to a home can change the quality of your life and will often pay for themselves. However, if you’re planning a loft conversion or working on a stunning open plan design, all too often you’ll be required to install a sprinkler system, an unpopular option straight out of the 19th century. The Automist® Smartscan® fire suppression system is the modern alternative to sprinklers.

Developed by Plumis, Smartscan® differs from domestic sprinklers in several ways: its wall-mounted head is activated electronically when a large fire is present; it uses high-pressure water mist to reduce water use, and an infrared targeting system steers the mist jet directly into the fire. While the system tackles fire just as well as a sprinkler system, installation is simplified and any water damage to your property is greatly reduced.

Following the horrific residential fire in London’s Grenfell Tower, concern over home fire safety is high.

If you own or manage a flat that has a high fire risk, Automist® Smartscan® is an investment that could save lives, belongings and property. It’s also an option in houses in multiple occupancy (HMOs) with layout problems, or simply for those looking to improve home fire safety.

This innovative and affordable fire sprinkler alternative is internationally acclaimed for the active fire protection it offers homeowners. Automist® helps you stay safe and meet building regulations.
