Building or renovating a property can create the amazing living space that you desire. Building regulations play a key role when creating your dream open-plan designs.
Exposed staircases, full open plan layouts, loft and basement conversions can be achieved by installing an Automist® fire suppression system to meet building control safety requirements.

  • Enables regulation compliant open-plan building layouts
  • Protects fire escape routes
  • Building regulation compliance when adding a loft conversion or basement
  • Increases the value and appeal of your home
  • Increases fire safety
  • Allows buildings with difficult site access to be regulation compliant

The modern, sleek design of Automist® is an appealing alternative to traditional residential fire sprinkler systems. The Automist® system does not require a water tank, the compact pump will fit discreetly into your property and connects to the mains water supply. New build/renovation or retrofit installations can be carried out with minimal disruption.
At Fire Mist, our passion is to provide the highest quality service and installation when fitting Automist® automatic fire suppression to your home. Following a thorough site survey, we will provide a comprehensive no-obligation quotation.


The consequences of fire can have a devastating impact up on individuals and property. Fire safety standards are of paramount importance for housing providers, local authorities and private/social landlords. The Automist® design process takes into account the specific environment and wide range of needs of the building tenants.
Unlike traditional fire sprinklers, Automist Smartscan Hydra® can be installed in multiple living units at different times, allowing complete flexibility of installation when covering buildings of multiple dwellings/occupancy.
