To get different results, we must do things differently.

Having only one dominant sprinkler design is problematic. The types of buildings, occupants and fire risks vary, meaning there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, we need a toolkit of measures to ensure housing providers are aware of their options and each fire strategy has a well-considered and cost-effective solution. A variety of products with varying attributes will help ensure effective solutions are available to suit different scenarios and meet each home's individual needs.

sprinkler design unchanged in over 100 years

Two critical benefits of Automist:

  • Earlier activation to minimise the production of toxic gas & heat and help people escape
    For many scenarios, Automist operates 2.0 to 13.7 times quicker than a concealed sprinkler 
  • More efficient use of watermist to reduce the demand on the water supply
    Ideal for retrofit when traditional fire sprinklers demand too large a water supply or a tank

According to Dame Hackitt, the over-reliance on standardised solutions is one of the building industry’s fundamental failings, resulting in a system that discourages ownership and accountability for decisions. At Plumis, we believe that sometimes the riskiest thing is maintaining the status quo. In recent years, the most significant factors contributing to the broader adoption of sprinklers have been increasing mandatory legalisation, and pressure remains on manufacturers to reduce costs without compromising quality. We want to increase adoption by providing a product that solves problems which a traditional approach can not solve. We innovate because fire statistics worldwide show that people are still losing their lives or being injured by fire in buildings, even those protected by active fire suppression systems, including sprinklers. As American Physicist William G. Pollard once said, “those who initiate change will have a better opportunity to manage the change that is inevitable."
