Elegant fire protection for the home
An existing medium, reinvented. Watch to discover how the technology works...
Automist® Smartscan® reinvents water mist technology for a residential setting - it's the smarter, modern equivalent to a home fire sprinkler system.
The intuative scanner detects fire through the measure of temperature. Where it registers a heat spike the wall head will scan the room for fire and target the fire direct. Unlike traditional sprinklers, the location of the trigger on the wall combined with the direct target of the mist means that the technology can starve a fire more efficiently using far less water, causing less water damage. This smart technology eradicates the need for a hefty water tank as it takes water directly from the mains. This makes the Automist® Smartscan® a much more appealing fire suppression product - it's compact, it allows open plan modern living, it's easy retrofit install takes a matter of hours, it's cheaper to run and maintain than sprinklers, and if activated it causes minimal water damage.
Testament to the innovative technology, in 2016 Smartscan® was awarded the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” for ground-breaking design. Selected by an independent expert panel based on criteria including as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. This highest single distinction is given to just 1.5 per cent of all the entries.
Smartscan® is an LABC registered solution (EW534) that is suitable to be used in any application where a BS 8458:2015 compliant watermist system is acceptable as a code-compliant automatic water fire suppression system, for example in accordance with the recommendations of BS 9991:2015. UKAS accredited certification body BSI has also issued a certificate of verification to BS 8458:2015 performance requirements (VC 656504).
