Guardian SSI Exhibits Range Top Suppression

Guardian Safety Solutions International Inc. (GSSI) (http://www.guardianssi.com), in the development and manufacturing of residential range top fire protection systems, is exhibiting at the National Association of Fire Equipment Distributors (NAFED) Sectional Conference, April 4 – 5, at Bally’s Atlantic City.  NAFED’s guiding mission is gathering and disseminating information and ideas that will improve the world’s fire protection and increase the fire protection industry’s competence.

“We are delighted to demonstrate our ‘Guardian Solution’ range top suppression system at NAFED,” said Paul Rouse, GSSI’s administrative officer. “This is extremely important as there are 34,000 kitchen fires each day causing more than $7 billion in damage every year.”  He added that More than 12 million unintentional home cooking fires go unreported causing 640,000 injuries annually.

GSSI manufactures the Guardian III Model G300B, UL and ULC listed with a fuel shut-off.  “The Guardian is designed to detect and extinguish cooking fires and prevent re-ignition in private homes, apartments, senior housing, college campuses, hospitals and other facilities.  Even older kitchens can be retrofitted as well,” Rouse said.

Once it detects heat at a pre-determined temperature, the Guardian sends a signal to release an extinguishing agent that suppresses the fire. Guardian will also shut off the gas or electric supply to the stove in order to prevent reigniting. The design of the system offers:

    automatic operation
    continuous 24-hour protection
    concealed installation
    easy clean-up
    proven reliability
