Smoke detectors

Smoke detectors issue a signal to a fire alarm control panel, as part of a larger fire safety system, to notify the presence of smoke as an indicator of fire. These products are typically found in commercial environments.

Carbon monoxide alarms

Carbon monoxide alarms are intended to raise a local audible alarm before dangerous levels of carbon monoxide accumulate. Carbon monoxide alarms are intended to detect the presence of carbon monoxide from sources such as, but not limited to, exhaust from internal-combustion engines, abnormal operation of fuel-fired appliances and fireplaces.

Water-based agent fire extinguishers

Water-based agent fire extinguishers extinguish or control small fires by removing the heating element of the fire triangle with a water-based agent.


Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers

Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers extinguish the fire by removing the oxygen element of the fire triangle, and also by removing the heat with a very cold discharge.


Dry chemical fire extinguishers

Smoke Masks
