Plumis upgrade of award-winning algorithm

  • 15 Aug 2018

Plumis Ltd has become a leader in innovation for the fire safety sector, thanks to its formidable line of water mist fire suppression products; now, it introduces a fully upgraded version of their award-winning algorithm with the latest in fire safety innovations.

Plumis Ltd has tackled the limitations of fitting traditional sprinklers in existing properties by creating a line of water mist fire suppression systems.

This watermist, known as Automist, achieves the industry’s lowest water consumption – a fraction of the supply of Plumis competitors.

Plumis’ latest product offering, Automist Smartscan Hydra, clocks in at under 6 litres per minute: a tenth of the water as traditional sprinklers.

Its tank-free low water usage, combined with wall-mounted electronic spray heads and fewer heads per room, makes installation a whole lot easier, whilst continuing to deliver the same fire performance as its predecessors.

In high rise buildings, the typical fire suppression system is the traditional sprinkler, where each ceiling-mounted nozzle can spray approximately 60 litres every minute, in the form of large droplets.

These systems are designed to allow for several nozzles activating during a fire. However, in retrofit projects, the challenges of upgrading the water supply, providing pumps and tanks, and installing several nozzles in each ceiling, can mean significant cost and complexity beyond the unsightly pipes and occupant fear of water damage.

Automist Smartscan Hydra was created in response to the growing need for the Automist system to be more cost effective in large areas such as multi-storey homes.

Automist has already established itself as a viable solution for retrofit of multiple dwelling properties; to read about a case study at Surrey Towers, in Addlestone, where it has been installed, click here.

Plumis hopes most people will never need to see Automist Smartscan Hydra in action, but have confidence that, in the event of a fire, families are safe, protected, and property damage is kept to the barest minimum.
