Carbon monoxide alarms are intended to raise a local audible alarm before dangerous levels of carbon monoxide accumulate. Carbon monoxide alarms are intended to detect the presence of carbon monoxide from sources such as, but not limited to, exhaust from internal-combustion engines, abnormal operation of fuel-fired appliances, and fireplaces.
Residential gas detectors are intended for installation in residential occupancies and recreational vehicles (RVs). Residential gas detectors are intended to detect flammable gases such as propone and natural gas.
Water-based agent fire extinguishers extinguish or control small fires by removing the heating element of the fire triangle with a water based agent.
Carbon dioxide fire extinguishers extinguish the fire by removing the oxygen element of the fire triangle, and also by removing the heat with a very cold discharge.
Dry chemical fire extinguishers extinguish the fire primarily by interrupting the chemical reaction of the fire triangle.
Wet chemical fire extinguishers extinguish the fire by removing the heat of the fire triangle and prevents re-ignition by creating a barrier between the oxygen and fuel elements.
Water fire extinguishers extinguish the fire by removing the oxygen element of the fire triangle, and also by removing the heat with a very cold discharge.
Halocarbon clean agent fire extinguishers extinguish fire by removing the oxygen element of the fire triangle, and also by removing the heat with a very cold discharge.
Fire and smoke masks are air-purifying respiratory-protective smoke escape devices (RPEDs). It includes air-purifying respirators that protect a person from a fire by removing harmful contaminants from the inhaled air.
