Automist For Social Housing

Enhancing resident safety with a fire suppression system that’s easy and cost-effective to install
Automist has been developed specifically to improve protection for vulnerable occupants and is being adopted by a growing number of social landlords, to future proof homes and to ensure their fire safety strategies can keep up to date with rapid changes in risk and dwelling use.

The majority of fatalities in accidental domestic fires involve those who are considered to be vulnerable and less able to escape from a fire, including the elderly and disabled. This includes a wide range of people with disparate needs that might not be adequately protected by traditional fire protection measures, such as fire sprinkler systems.

With a duty of care for their residents, and added responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of residents categorised as vulnerable, social landlords are increasingly installing fire suppression systems, such as Automist, as part of their fire safety strategy.

Social Housing Fire Suppression

Advanced fire suppression for social housing
With fire safety, every second counts. The earlier an active fire suppression system activates, the smaller the size of the fire and the easier it is to suppress or extinguish, minimising exposure to lethal smoke and toxic gases.

Traditional automatic fire suppression systems (AFSS), like sprinklers, are mechanically activated, operating when affected by the heat from a fire, so are most effective at tackling fast-growing fires as the activation temperature threshold is breached quickly. Automist is different.
