Fire suppression system

60% of the domestic fires originate in the kitchen. In case of a fire, a wireless heat detector triggers an under-sink pump. The pump drives mains water through the nozzle unit which quickly fills the kitchen volume with fog, creating an inert atmosphere of 30% water and suppressing the blaze. The Automist is more effective than normal fire extinguishers because it is an automatic fire suppression system and does not have to be operated by untrained people.
The special nozzle, which is the most important part of the Automist, can be placed underneath every standard sink tap, and is designed to blend in with you kitchen environment.
