As the market leader for over 20 years, Detectortesters continues to lead the field with innovative products that deliver time and cost saving benefits to fire engineers and building owners worldwide.
Products from the Solo™ product range have become the industry’s test tool of choice allowing, through a range of tools, functional testing of smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide (CO) detectors at heights of up to 9m. In recent years, advances in technology have led to changes in detector design resulting in wider use of heat and CO detectors and the introduction of multi-stimulus detectors. Such advances have led to Testifire – a 3 in 1 detector tester capable of testing smoke, heat and CO that enables the move away from pressurised aerosol canisters, requires less kit to be carried on-site and allows functional testing of single and multi-stimulus detectors. The innovation of Testifire was recognised with a Queen’s Award for Enterprise: Innovation in 2014.
Despite their popularity, pole-based testers have limitations in the height they can reach and where access is difficult, costly or risky such as in elevator shafts and behind locked doors (due to security or other hazards). Scorpion® is a new way of testing these detectors. With only the smoke-generating head unit mounted in the hard-to-access location, the annual test of the smoke detector is carried out utilising a conveniently sited wall mounted control panel making for easy and risk-free testing. Hospitals, defence sites, transport hubs and academia are already benefiting from Scorpion which has been designed for both point smoke detectors and aspirating smoke detection systems.
All these products, along with relevant case studies will be presented at Firex International in June. If you are visiting be sure to visit us on Stand F110, if you can’t make it you can find out more at detectortesters.com
