Intelligent fire suppression

Suitable for use as an alternative to traditional fire sprinklers in many domestic and residential settings, Automist is trusted to protect more than 10,000 properties; from private homes where it enables open plan layouts and loft conversions, to large sheltered housing schemes where it protects residents who are greater risk from fire.

Automist has been independently tested to show it provides BS 8458 fire performance, using a tenth of the water used by a traditional sprinkler. Automist does not require a tank and connects to the normal domestic water supply for ease of installation and reduced water damage post-activation.

How Automist works

Automist is an intelligent fire suppression system widely used both as a fire safety add-on and as a trade-off, and is incorporated into the fire strategy of developments large and small.



In the event of a fire, the system is triggered automatically by a ceiling mounted detector.



Automist’s sprayheads will scan the room to look for temperature changes indicating a fire.



If a fire is detected, the sprayhead best positioned to tackle it targets it with watermist.



Watermist removes heat and displaces oxygen from the fire zone, resulting in fire control.
