Misting Systems
for House Fire Safety

The iMist™ system was designed for domestic properties and to date we have completed over 7,000 installations across the UK. 

Protecting House and Home

Open-plan living is continuously increasing in popularity and is a style many people look for in their homes. However, creating an open, flowing layout does bring into force more stringent fire safety rules – especially with regard to floor layouts, room sizes and travel distances. To avoid using passive fire protection systems such as fire doors and enclosed staircases, water mist fire suppression systems can help achieve the layout you desire.

Trusted by architects, developers and thousands of homeowners, iMist™ offers a quick, simple solution that is fully compliant with BS: 8458. The retrofittable nature of the iMist™ system also allows for a faster installation with minimal damage and disruption.

Why do you need a Fire Suppression System?

BS:9991 says you must have an AWFSS in the following circumstances: Multi-Basement Buildings

For dwellings with multiple floors below ground level, a protected stairway, and an AWFSS is required. 9 meters should not be exceeded from the foot of the protected stair to any habitable room.

6.4 (b) Dwelling Houses with one or more storey greater than 7.5m in height (4 storeys)

A second, separate protected stairwell is not required if AWFSS is fitted throughout.

9.1 (d) Internal Planning of Flats and Maisonettes

Flats or maisonettes with an open plan arrangement and more than one floor should have a protected stairway and AWFSS fitted. This allows escaping to the shared external entrance.

9.4.2 (a) Extended travel distances within an open-plan flat

Flats more than 4.5m above ground level that are entered on the same level can increase total travel distances to the entrances from 9m to 20m with the use of AWFSS throughout the entire building, along with a LD1 fire detection and fire alarm system in accordance with BS 5839-6:2013.

9.3 (b) Provision of inner rooms in flats not more than 4.5m in height

Inner rooms are not suggested unless the use of an AWFSS is utilised throughout the entire building, along with a grade D LD1 Fire detections and fire alarm system in accordance with BS 5839-6:2013.

9.7 Open Plan Layouts

Open planned flats are permissible with a fully fitted AWFSS.
