Automist is the first active fire protection system that combines low cost and ease of retrofit with excellent aesthetics. Intended as a more practical and affordable alternative to sprinklers, Automist uses a high pressure pump to generate a fine water mist from nozzles mounted under a standard tap. The innovative system can also be mounted stand alone on a work top or even a wall. In an extensive BRE test programme, Automist was found to render a lethal environment survivable and reduce damage. This automatic fire extinguisher is a mini sprinkler system for the home.
