Automist is the most comprehensively tested domestic watermist system in the UK. We take pride in the independent third party validation of our Exova Warrington test reports (BS8458/BS9252 Fire Performance for Smartscan). We are the only UK watermist company to have an LABC Registered Detail (EW534/EW171) and a BSi Verification Certificate (VC 656504) – two independent assessments of our fire and product performance against BS 8458:2015. Our systems have also saved at least two lives!
Aware of the need to demonstrate that Automist is suitable and sufficient for the task, we have pushed our system limits beyond the bare minimum, challenging it in many additional tests to suppress or extinguish fires in any position including difficult fires directly under the nozzle, chip pan fires or those hidden by furniture, and in a variety of free and forced draught conditions. Demonstration tests have convincingly proved its worth time and time again. It has even travelled to the USA, where the UL 2167 listing process has begun and where it favourably impressed fire and insurance authorities in live testing.
