Automist Tap Mount for kitchen fire protection

A breakthrough in home safety

Automist® faucet mount targets the kitchen, where most fires start (46% of all fires and 19% of deaths according to the NFPA), installing almost invisibly underneath a standard faucet. Unlike other fire suppression systems, Automist can be run from a standard residential water supply, drawing only 1.6 gal per minute. Installation disruption is minimal and annual maintenance involves only a simple and quick test. Automist uses well-established water mist technology to protect life and property.

Automist fills the gap between fire extinguishers and traditional sprinkler systems. Whether you’re a homeowner looking for peace of mind from kitchen fires, or a landlord responsible for safeguarding your tenants, Automist® is changing the way people think about domestic fire protection. Automist uses a high pressure pump to generate a fine water mist from nozzles mounted in its base.

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.
