British Made Awards 2021

This means that individual projects in Scotland that use the iMist system will not require project specific in-depth review by the Building Standards as the LABSS certificate attests that it has already been assessed and approved for suitability. iMist’s fully qualified engineers also provide ongoing servicing including downloading and updating internal software of the unit; visual checking of nozzles installed where possible; running and testing the pump unit; testing the alarm sounder; reconfirming the layouts of the property/installation are still in accordance with the original installation; pump cleansing; and renewal of pump warranty for a further year. Ultimately, iMist is an ambitious business with a firm mission to become a leading UK company in the design, manufacture, installation, and maintenance of water mist fire suppression systems. With increased demand for fire suppression systems and the fact that its misting system offers a number of benefits over a traditional sprinkler, the company expects to see significant growth over the next few years.

In 2015, iMist set out on the mission to make the installation of fire suppression systems for domestic and residential dwellings easier and quicker than ever before. This took into consideration the time-consuming process required to install traditional fire sprinklers, alongside the need for considerable amounts of water and disruption caused by fixed pipework. As a result, an innovative system was developed which isn’t to be underestimated. iMist fire protection systems are easy to install, cost-effective, discreet, and allow greater adaptability than the traditional water mist and sprinkler systems on the market. The system has been developed and rigorously tested by iMist and is unique to the company. It is one of few companies around the world which undertakes the design of all its products inhouse, with manufacturing taking place at its Hull facility. Also with offices in Kent and Stirling, iMist has a nationwide network of engineers who are able to install and maintain its systems. iMist works with the public sector as well as serves private developers and homeowners, recent residential projects including student accommodation, heritage-listed buildings, hotels and hostels, modular buildings, care homes and sheltered housing, and House of Multiple Occupancy (HMOs). iMist systems have also been installed in domestic properties including family homes, multiple houses, extensions, loft conversions, apartments and flats, and change of building use.
