Automist Vs Traditional Fire Sprinklers
In this video, see how Automist Smartscan compares to a conventional fire sprinkler in tackling a tricky under the counter mini-fridge fire.
Automist activates electronically to provide earlier fire detection and faster activation - suppressing fires using up to 90% less water. Unlike a traditional sprinkler, the system is triggered by a combined heat and smoke detector so it doesn't rely on tempartures exceeding a pre-defined activation level.
It is advantageous particularly for slower burning smouldering fires, which may produce large amounts of toxic smoke but take longer to generate enough heat to reach a sprinkler's activation temperature.
Automist has been proven to activate up to two minutes faster than a traditional sprinkler - allowing vital extra time for escape or rescue.
