Air Sampling Detection

Watch the Kidde Air Sampling Fire Detection and Suppression System Demonstration

Very early warning aspirating smoke detection (ASD) solutions with continuous air sampling provide the earliest possible warning of an impending fire hazard. ASDs buy the critical time needed to investigate an alarm and initiate an appropriate response to prevent injury, property damage or business disruption. Air Sampling detectors have multi-level warnings and a wide range of sensitivity that do not degrade or change over time, so even minute levels of smoke can be detected before a fire has time to escalate.
