Fire And Life Safety Protection


Smoke detectors, Heat detectors & Carbon Monoxide Detectors are a very important addition to any security system.

Smoke detectors can detect smoke from a smoldering fire, long before a fire actually erupts. Heat detectors, in contrast, can only be activated by high heat levels generated by a fully engulfed fire. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), recommends one Smoke Alarm on every floor, in every sleeping area, and in every bedroom. Your home’s specific needs should be confirmed with your Trilex Security consultant.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide. Vehicles or generators running in an attached garage can also produce dangerous levels of carbon monoxide. Speak to your Trilex Security consultant about the potential sources of carbon monoxide in your home.

Trilex Photo Electric Smoke Detectors: there are two types of smoke detectors, ionization and photoelectric. Ionization units use chemical reactions to detect the presence of smoke and respond well to fast-flaming fires, such as paper. Photoelectric detectors work best for slower, smouldering fires, which are more common in typical residences.

Trilex Rate of Rise Heat Detectors: there are also two types of heat detectors, fixed temperature and rate-of-rise. Fixed temperature components activate once a room reaches a predetermined temperature, usually 135′ F or 190′ F. Rate-of-rise heat detectors have fixed temperature sensors but they can also detect rapid increases in temperature.

Trilex Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Our Carbon Monoxide Detectors are designed with a local sounder and will also trigger your security system’s siren to alert you if carbon monoxide is present in the air in your home.
