Automist® Fixed Wall Head
Automist® Fixed Wall Head is an LABC Registered Solution (EW171) for loft conversions. It is a fire protection solution specially designed to allow open plan layouts to comply with regulations.
Building and housing regulations have traditionally encouraged the creation of fire resistant compartments in homes so as to limit the spread of fire, an approach that consumers find increasingly frustrating as they seek open, light spaces to live in. Today however, the LACoRS guide, Approved Document B and the Scottish Building Regulations all recognise the need for flexibility of layout and all allow open-plan designs as long as some additional features, including fire suppression, are provided.
For architects and developers, Automist® allows the modern, open-plan layouts that clients increasingly expect to comply with Building Regulations. For landlords, Automist® can create a safe escape route in an existing open plan house with no impact on rentable space.
Automist® is available in an inconspicuous wall mounting version to protect escape routes that pass through living areas. It is designed to blend in seamlessly with the home enviroment. Automist® won the James Dyson Award in 2008 and was selected by the British Library as one of the top 15 inventions of the last decade in 2010.
The backplate is available in Bright Chrome, Satin Stainless, Gloss White and Antique Brass.
