Automist Smartscan® is a smarter, modern fire sprinkler system. Instead of the typical ceiling-mounted sprinkler head, this device consists only of a stainless steel panel that seamlessly integrates into the interior of almost any living space. As soon as the system is activated, the head of the unit rotates automatically to directly target fires with a powerful jet of water mist. This has been proven to achieve the same performance as other familiar sprinkler systems. However, one huge advantage it boasts is that this approach uses 90% less water. The result is significantly less water damage to the living space.
It received the highest distinction in the Red Dot Award: Product Design 2016. Selected by an independent expert panel, according to criteria such as degree of innovation, formal quality, functionality and ecological compatibility. The jury awards the highest single distinction “Red Dot: Best of the Best” for ground-breaking design.
Great for insurers
In a fire, traditional sprinklers tend to be effective at soaking an entire area which can cause issues for insurers. Automist Smartscan® has nozzle heads that produce very fine water mist driven by high-pressure pumps that limits the kind of incidental damage that makes deluge sprinkler systems so unappealing.
Great for building designers
For building designers, it frees up options for open-plan living without compromising on safety or falling foul of the Building Regulations. It takes up a lot less space than a traditional sprinkler system and runs off the water mains. As an added bonus, it’s elegant and discreet, having been designed to complement contemporary living.
