Plumis‘ sprinkler system ‘Automist’ may be the answer to the increasingly modern layout of houses not meeting safety regulations.
With open plan designs becoming ever-increasingly popular, due to their attractiveness, practicality and use of space, it can be easy to forget that they do come with negatives.
This is because concerns are being raised that stringent British safety measures are not being met.
This creates limitations, as this means layout plans being drawn up must contain small closed-in spaces to help contain potential fires and allow for an easy escape route.
However, thanks to ‘Automist’, a revolutionary water mist system, these problems could becoming a thing of the past.
Automist uniquely uses a tiny amount of water (5-6 litres every minute) and has a small, condensed design, making it ideal for spaces where the retrofit of a sprinkler system can be difficult.
Its design allows you to plug it into a space with relative ease and there is no need for the running of a tank or a network of pipes. This alternative means you can fit the device in a similar style to how to a power shower would be installed.
It seems Automost could really be the key to allowing a new wave of open plan homes!
