Smoke Detector Test

The Federal Government says 16 million smoke detectors in US homes don't work. Furthermore, studies show that working smoke detectors reduce the risk of fatalities by 50%.

Smoke Detector Tester

Smoke Detector Tester

Functional Smoke Entry Testing is now Required for all Multi-family Dwelling Units.

The new revision in Chapter 11 of the National Fire Alarm Code, 2002 Edition now requires that "Fire-warning equipment shall be maintained and tested in accordance with the manufacturers instructions and per the requirements of Chapter 10".

Chapter 10 (with references to Chapter 2) makes it clear that the same requirements for testing smoke detectors listed under UL 268 and UL 1730 shall be applied to those listed under UL 217, namely, for functional smoke entry and sensitivity testing in multi family dwellings, including hotels, motels, apartments, and assisted-living care facilities.

Smoke Detector Tester™ from Home Safeguard is the most reliable, economical, and preferred way to achieve smoke entry test compliance with the new Code 72.

NFPA CODE 72 CHAPTER 10
Chapter 10 reads: "The detector shall be tested in place to ensure smoke entry into the sensing chamber and an alarm response. Testing with smoke or listed aerosol approved by the manufacturer shall be permitted as acceptable test methods."
