Daniel Smith MIFSM MIFPO, Commercial Director at Blue Light Safety had installed Automist, a pre-engineered water mist system, in similar applications and was confident that a three-pump Automist system would meet his clients’ requirements. The installation proved rapid, and was less expensive than sprinklers. The process was also simplified by Automist’s modest demands: the water pressure requirement of only 1.0 bar and the flow of 5.6 litres per minute per pump eliminated the need for a dedicated water supply or storage tanks. Disruption on site was kept to a minimum as installation and commissioning took less than a working day to complete. Automist only uses a small fraction of the water required for a conventional sprinkler system; it is neat and unobtrusive and fitted seamlessly into this impressive refurbishment.
Daniel Smith was pleased with the result and will continue to use Automist in the future for projects where the demands of Building Control and aesthetic considerations are both paramount.
