Important! The coverage requirement can vary depending on the design brief so this must be verified with the Client, their Main Contractor, or their appointed Fire Engineer as they are the only participants with the knowledge required of the building and occupancy risks, and the overall Fire Safety Plan and the role that Automist plays in assuring safety: this responsibility should not be devolved to the installer.
Once this design brief has been specified the Authorised Installer will create a layout to ensure that the positioning of heads and of pumps is such that it maximises the resilience of Automist and provides full coverage of the area(s) that require protection. Detailed guidance of the layout rules can be found in the Design, Installation and Operation Manual (DIOM).
The specification drawing is created with our online layout tool to ensure appropriate coverage.
