Smoke detectors and fire alarms are some of the most important items in your workplace or home when it comes to people's safety. These early warning devices may help alert employees or your family to a fire and dangerous smoke, giving them time to evacuate the building.
They must be tested periodically to ensure they are functioning properly, as no electronic device is infallible. Batteries will die over time, and other components of the smoke detector can reach the end of their lifespan, so it's necessary to test them regularly and replace the used batteries - or buy a new device if necessary.
This is the only way to ensure they work correctly, helping employees or family members stay safe, should there be a fire in the workplace, or your home.
Smoke detectors should be tested once a month, replacing the batteries at least twice a year. This lightweight, durable, aerosol smoke dispenser (style number FRE140) is injection-moulded, making it the perfect tool to test all kinds of modern smoke detectors.
The aerosol smoke dispenser with its specially formulated aerosol (style number FRE139) is ideal for fully-controlled, efficient testing. Only a short burst is necessary to activate the smoke detectors. A single 1.13-metre extension pole, manufactured from lightweight, durable fibreglass (style number FRE135) is suitable for reaching hard-to-access detectors mounted on ceilings.
The smoke detector tester kit (style number FRE129) contains one aerosol smoke dispenser, one 25ml aerosol can and one 1.3-metre extension pole, so you have everything you need in one handy kit.
We stock a wide range of fire alarms and testers, to help ensure workplace fire safety systems are as effective as possible. Fire safety is a vital health and safety factor in the workplace and all businesses must conduct fire risk assessments and carry out regular testing of all fire safety equipment.
The cost of fire alarms, testers and other safety equipment is worth it when one considers the risks to life, the damage and the massive financial costs, should there be a fire.
