Honeywell has released a new line of addressable smoke and heat detection devices available across all Honeywell Fire brands.
The company claims the devices improve detection of fires involving synthetic materials that are commonly used in modern buildings, and offer improved system reliability against false alarms.
The devices have also been designed to meet new industry requirements that go into effect in the United States in 2020 – the UL 268 7th Edition standards.
“Honeywell’s newest fire detection devices step up to the challenge of modern construction methods and codes with the latest technology in fire safety,” says Samir Jain, general manager for Fire Americas, Honeywell Home and Building Technologies. “Serving customers in more than 10 million buildings around the world, we were able to redesign our devices with an unwavering focus on customers and end users. Our products across all of our fire brands are easy to install and use with a lower cost of ownership without sacrificing safety.”
The new line of addressable detectors includes photo, photo/thermal and heat detectors, along with bases and accessories. Additional specialty detectors, including higher-sensitivity and combined carbon monoxide detectors, will be available in the coming months, according to the company.
In addition to these features, each spot-type detector is said to be designed for ease-of-use, simple installation and project flexibility, and comes with varying base sizes, an expanded color offering and modern design.
