Plumis’ latest product, Automist Smartscan, is ideal for tower flats and high rise buildings, using infrared technology to develop an intelligently targeted watermist spray with a six metre range for volume protection.
Undoubtedly, the Grenfell Tower tragedy made a serious impact on the regulations and overall concern for fire safety across the UK.
The FIA and LABC have repeatedly requested revisions to London policies for fire safety in council flats or high tower properties to ensure something on this scale never happens again.
Unfortunately, the costs to retrofit a full sprinkler system into one of these properties in order to meet regulations is easier said than done.
Plumis are offering a a simpler solution, which satisfies building regulators needs and financial restraints whilst also keeping residents safe from the instance of fire.
A big issue with traditional sprinkler systems is the need to expand or attach a main with additional piping to get the amount of water required; this is both impractical and costly when dealing with buildings with multiple residencies.
Automist is a smarter, automatic alternative to conventional sprinklers for these projects.
Instead of the typical ceiling-mounted sprinkler head, this device consists only of a stainless-steel panel that can seamlessly integrate itself into the interior of practically every living space.
Upon activation, the head of the unit rotates automatically to directly target fires with a powerful jet of water mist, using a tenth of the water supply of traditional fire sprinklers.
As fire safety is ever more so in the news, the need for a sprinkler system to meet standards intensifies, with relocating people to other facilities a significant expense.
Automist Smartscan’s compact, straightforward design allows retrofit with no need for a tank or network of pipes.
