Automist was used to protect the inner rooms for 39 of the 40 apartments, which are open plan and do not have a separate lobby to protect the escape route. Crucially, in this style of building it is important to avoid disruption or damage to historic plasterwork and fine decoration. Grade II listed buildings are typically ornate examples of regency architecture – a heritage which demanded to be safeguarded.
Mike Fowler of Mainpoint Fire Protection Ltd said, “This project would not have gained Building Control approval without the design flexibility that Automist offers.”
