Smoke Detector Testers

We have several options for functional testing of smoke detectors.  The one you choose will depend on how frequently you are testing detectors, the height at which they are installed, other types of detector you are testing and what test equipment you already have.

Whichever product you choose, you can be confident that it is designed for purpose, will offer a reliable and safe method of testing – in compliance with codes and standards – and is approved by the detector manufacturer.

“All our engineers use Solo! It’s great kit which allows us to test all detectors quickly without fuss and it never lets us down”
