Compatibility testing is no easy feat, as a result the 500+ detectors in Solo’s lab include detectors of different profile, design and age. It takes a lot of science and testing to get things right – in the build-up to the launch of a new product, it’s not uncommon for the technical team to run in excess of 10,000 tests – just to ensure the best possible results and the ultimate performance in terms of compatibility and efficiency.

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.
