Automist - Intelligent fire suppression
Whether your jurisdiction mandates fire sprinklers or you want to add a life-saving upgrade to your home. Automist can protect homes that are usually unprotected because it works with a standard water main and uses 90% less water. It detects fire earlier and activates faster, delivering better outcomes for people and property.
Benefits of using Automist
This revolutionary new system can detect fires, locate them, and put them out preventing the destruction that can be caused by fire and water in our historic property. We are proud to be the first in the U.S. to install the Automist System and comforted to know that our visitors’ safety is assured and the Goodridge Freedom Center is protected from fire related damage.
This simple but clever device should become a permanent safety feature in the home. Smoke alarms are an essential part of modern life but have remained fundamentally unchanged for forty years. Automist not only detects a fire but can put it out as well.
This system is a lifesaver. There are a lot of benefits to this, as firefighters, we know this is going to help us.
An innovative design concept that elevates the principle of fire sprinklers to a new level. The system is defined as an integrated part of the interior and equipped with highly advanced functionality. The topic of fire safety is thus expanded by a pathbreaking novel interpretation. This fire sprinkler system emerged as a design element within a living space, unifying safety with elegance.
We are on the crest of a new system that will do exceptionally well and cause less water damage.
How does Automist compare to fire sprinklers
How Automist Works
When triggered by a connected detector, all the spray heads in the area will begin scanning. They start measuring the temperatures within the room using an infrared sensor. The scan is looking for an exceptionally high-temperature reading or a differential increase between scans. All heads which locate a fire during a scan are then compared to see which has the best view.
A selected spray head will lock onto the desired location and activate the high-pressure pump, driving mains water through the unique nozzle unit, quickly directing a dense fog into the location of the fire. Our spray heads are wall-mounted (around light switch height) to avoid ineffective evaporation in the hot layer in the ceiling and the upward flow of hot combustion products. Automist leverages the natural turbulence the fire creates and seeks to ensure watermist is entrained into the seat of the fire.
