Smoke Tester  
 
 

SmokeSabre is a major step forward in the design of aerosol smoke detector testers. All other pressurised aerosol smoke alarm testers have the inherent drawback that, if used too close to the detector, they leave harmful residue on the casing and / or inside the chamber of the detector. This residue can discolour the casing, can attract dust, affect sensitivity and, in some cases, lead to corrosion, cracking or even complete failure of the detector.

SmokeSabre inhibits use too close to the detector and eliminates harmful residue while focussing and targeting the canned smoke test gas.

When SmokeSabre is in the closed position the sabre prevents access to the spray button. You can spray only when the sabre is fully extended. In use, air is drawn through the holes in the sabre and this, coupled with the venturi effect involved, assists the velocity and vaporisation process of the airborne ‘smoke’ particles. The result is a more effective test, delivering better detector activation, using less gas per test, and reducing costs while eliminating harmful residue.

SmokeSabre is a universal test product covering the sensitivity range of all smoke detectors (see particle size comparison chart).

The extending sabre is made of 100% biodegradable plastic making SmokeSabre the only smoke detector test aerosol to be both recyclable and eco-friendly*.

SmokeSabre is UL listed, meets global testing standards, and is approved by major smoke detector manufacturers.

Using SmokeSabre

Testing with SmokeSabre aids compliance with codes and standards globally.

“Point smoke detectors should be functionally tested by a method that confirms that smoke can enter the detector chamber and produce a fire alarm signal (e.g.: by use of apparatus that generates simulated smoke or suitable aerosols around the detector). It should be ensured that the material used does not cause damage to, or affect the subsequent performance of, the detector...”
BS5839 1: 2002; 45.4 (D)
“...the detectors shall be tested in place to ensure smoke entry into the sensing chamber and an alarm response.”
NFPA 72 Chapter 10 (10.4.2.2 3g)
