How it works

If a fire occurs, Automist® is activated by ceiling mounted smoke or heat detectors. Automist® then performs a scan for the fire within the room. When the fire is identified, Automist will dispense highly effective water mist directly at the fire, cooling and removing oxygen to suppress it.
The Automist Smartscan Hydra® fire suppression system consists of up to six wall mounted  intelligent watermist sprayheads, ceiling mounted smoke/heat detectors, a controller and a compact pump connected to mains water and electricity. Unlike many traditional fire sprinkler systems, Automist does not require large pumps or a large water storage tank to be installed within the property.
