Using fire suppression in lieu of a lobby door

Removing the small hallway space between the front door and the second fire door


Automist was used in lieu of a lobby door to cover the newly enabled open plan living area that was previously separated as a communal corridor.

Neil Perring of Elite Fire Safety said “Without the design flexibility that Automist offers, the development would have been less aesthetically attractive and also more costly because there would have been much more disruption caused by the installation of pipework and wiring. We definitely plan to use Automist in the future for projects where the demands of Building Control and aesthetic considerations are both paramount.”
