How does Automist work?

In the event of a fire, the system is triggered automatically by a heat alarm or a fire panel output. Heat detection is recommended for kitchens and effectively eliminates nuisance activation when you burn the toast or open the oven.  Automist can be stopped manually by pressing a button on its control panel. As Automist uses much less water than a traditional sprinkler system, water damage is minimised and, where desired, manual activation can also be provided through a manual call point.


Once triggered, an under-sink pump drives mains water through the unique nozzle unit, quickly filling the room volume with a dense fog. Water mist removes heat and displaces oxygen from the fire zone, resulting in fire control, suppression or extinguishment. The intention is to lower the temperature, lessen the radiative heat and reduce oxygen to such an extent that combustion can be longer be maintained therefore reducing damage and maintaining survivable conditions.


Adding water to a kitchen chip pan fire can make the fire a lot worse, the same is not true for water mist, as the up draught from the flame and the evaporation of the tiny droplets prevents water from reaching and collecting in the pan.
