PLUMIS RECEIVES A QUEEN’S AWARD FOR ENTERPRISE IN INNOVATION



Plumis are delighted to celebrate today, 21 April 2016, being one of the select businesses recognised as winners of the 2016 Queen’s Award for Enterprise - the UK’s highest accolade for business success. 

Our award was received for Innovation. This was in recognition of developing and commercialising a successful range of life saving fire safety products. Our latest innovation Automist Smartscanturned the traditional fire sprinkler, quite literally, on its head. It relocates the traditional spray heads from the ceiling to a wall mounted nozzle, and uses a rotating head that directly targets fires with a powerful jet of water mist. It has been proven to achieve the same performance as residential sprinkler systems and typically uses 90% less water, minimising the potential for water damage to the living space.

William Makant, Plumis MD, said "Automist Smartscan has risen in popularity among architects and builders for being super easy to retrofit—without requiring a tank or network of pipes. It offers more than a reliable safety device for fighting fires; it’s an intelligent modern design feature offering greater flexibility for projects with challenging building regulations, from loft conversions to more open-plan homes and flats."
