Ground-breaking interest-free credit comes to Automist®, only from Intelligent Mist

Whether you have concerns about fire in your property, or are planning an open-plan upgrade and want to comply with Building Regulations, Automist® represents a major improvement that adds value to your home, and in 2018, Automist is now cost-effective even if you need it in every room of your house or flat.

But at Intelligent Mist we’ve gone a step further in making Automist accessible. If you commit to our Platinum Package Automist Smartscan Installation with an initial payment of only £500 plus VAT, we can now offer 0% APR over 12 months.

The safety of a sprinkler system, retrofitted to your home with only £500 up front

Since the Grenfell Tower disaster in 2017, many flat-owners have grown concerned over safety, and we’ve seen a lot of interest in fitting Automist to existing properties. When major home upgrades are funded through a mortgage, the cost of fire suppression usually isn’t a problem, but if you’re retrofitting Automist, mortgage finance may not be an option. With our 0% finance scheme, you can protect yourself now, and spread the cost over a full year. Our Platinum package also caps your costs and eliminates surprises, since we take on the entire project including electrics and plumbing, and commit to return your property to its original condition.

Project hit an “open plan” bump?

We often see building projects where surprise costs have forced compromises, or where the idea of an attractive open plan layout is introduced late in the scheme, squeezing the budget for an unexpected fire suppression system. In most cases open plan adds value to a property, so dumping the open plan option and the fire suppression system could be a big mistake. Intelligent Mist’s interest-free finance could allow you to deliver your open-plan dream while the builder is still on site, and then pay over the following year in monthly instalments. From Aberdeen to Wyre Forest, any local authority building control group can approve Automist Smartscan for the same open plan layouts and design freedoms that you’d get from more basic watermist sprinklers.

Starting in 2018, Automist Smartscan should be competitive with other sprinkler systems in a wide range of situations, such as:

  • retrofit or open plan conversion in a single apartment
  • conversion of commercial buildings into flats
  • limited water supply
  • projects where any room is larger than 32m2
  • inadequate space for a tank
  • high-spec new-build houses
  • loft conversions.
