New Products for Fire Protection


Audible Exit Sign is said to potentially reduce evacuation times up to 75%. Featuring a compact speaker that produces broadband noise that is installed near building exits or along egress routes, the unit acts as an audible "Exit" sign. Triggered by the building's fire-alarm control panel, it alerts building occupants to the location of the nearest exit using directional sound.

CPVC fitting compound is PPI-listed, which means that a material must undergo thousands of hours of testing while surviving very specific temperatures and elevated pressures unique to the desired HDB rating. The fittings are said by the manufacturer to last four times longer than those molded with other CPVC compounds when subjected to constant pressure tests at 551 psi at 180°F (82°C).
