All modular build properties supplied by Beattie Passive in both Scotland and Wales, and in accordance with legislative directives from both the Scottish Government and the Welsh assembly, must include fire suppression in all habitable rooms in all new homes, including bathrooms over 5m²and cupboard spaces over 2.5m². Although currently not a legislative requirement in England, more and more new homes, traditional build or otherwise are being looked at in regard to fire safety and the need to provide safe dwellings for home owners, leaseholders and tenants alike. Fire suppression systems will become a standard feature of new homes in England sooner rather than later similarly to the inclusion currently of linked fire detection systems.
The Smart Mist suppression system was selected by Beattie Passive on the basis of ease of installation, its ability to meet strict dimensional criteria within the pre-designed units, the systems compliance to BS8458:2015 for performance and be aesthetically pleasing for the end user. Whilst cost was a consideration it was not the principal driving force for system selection.
The system is simply and seamlessly installed at the Beattie factory in Norwich during the construction process of each individual unit.
Smart Mist Global’s accredited installer (Pro-Mist) has a permanent presence on the factory site to work alongside Beattie Passive.
