Social Housing Tenement Property - Perth

Case Study Description

Tenement Building, Social Housing
Half a day
Perth, Scotland
1 Domestic


St Catherine’s Place, located in Perth, Scotland, is a tenement building for social housing. The client contacted iMist™ for full domestic coverage to all habitable rooms in the apartment block, using their water mist fire suppression system. This was due to the tenants being considered a fire risk.

In as little as half a day, iMist™ were able to install the system to ensure that tenants and property were fire safe.


In October 2021, a fire broke out in the apartment block; the residents and building were successfully protected by the iMist™ Fire Suppression system which was installed in the tenement property.

Three fire engines from Scotland Fire and Rescue raced to the scene of the fire, which broke out in the early hours of the morning while the residents were sleeping. While on-site staff raised the alarm by dialling 999, the iMist™ system activated at the scene of the fire.

According to the fire report, the fire was controlled and contained prior to their arrival. The 13 firefighters, and one senior officer in attendance were then able to ensure all the residents were safely evacuated while breathing apparatus crews entered the property to ensure the fire was fully out.
