Automist Tap Mount for kitchen fire protection

A breakthrough in home safety

Automist is an award-winning safety device that integrates seamlessly into existing homes to offer volume protection. A reliable and cost-effective solution, Automist targets at-risk rooms such as the kitchen, where most fires start. Unlike other fire suppression systems, Automist can be run from a standard domestic mains water supply, installing almost invisibly underneath a standard tap. Installation disruption is minimal and annual maintenance involves only a simple and quick test. Automist uses well-established water mist technology to protect life and property, with only 10% of the water usage of a traditional sprinkler system. The system was independently tested at the BRE, but is typically not used to meet building regulations as it is not covered by an LABC Registered Detail.

Automist is a fire protection device that fills the gap between fire extinguishers and traditional sprinkler systems. Whether you’re a homeowner looking for peace of mind from kitchen fires, or a landlord responsible for safeguarding your tenants, Automist® is changing the way people think about domestic fire protection. Automist uses a high pressure pump to generate a fine water mist from nozzles mounted under a standard tap. The system is designed to protect the kitchen, one of the most fire-prone locations.


This simple but clever device should become a permanent safety feature in the home. Smoke alarms are an essential part of modern life but have remained fundamentally unchanged for forty years. Automist not only detects a fire but can put it out as well.
