What is Automist Smartscan?
“Independent third party testing has confirmed that Automist Smartscan is as effective and more efficient (less potential water damage) than sprinklers or conventional watermist products in suppressing fires to the related BS standards and it looks the business!”
Gavin and Cecilia’s open plan home enabled by Automist
Once Gavin and Cecilia started working through their vision of an open plan living area, they were alerted to a possible restriction through building regulations.
