Why Install a Firex 5000 Smoke Alarm?
The Firex 5000 smoke alarm provides contractors and homeowner's with innovative technology and convenience making it the easiest smoke alarm available to install and use. The front loading battery door preserves battery life for contractors during construction projects by removing battery from circuit while door is open. It also makes battery changes simple. In addition, Firex developed the False Alarm Control Feature(TM) to quiet unwanted alarms as a safety precaution to discourage users from removing the battery during a non-threatening alarm. The Firex 5000 meets building code requirements where DC battery back-up is required and recommended for all smoke alarm installations to provide added fire protection in the event of a power failure. With state-of-the-art production testing equipment and installer focused innovations, Firex smoke alarms have earned their reputation as the most preferred smoke alarms among contractors.
