Smoke Detector Disposal Statement - 01/30/2015
Hochiki America Corporation has ceased the production of ionization smoke detectors and sensors. As a result, we have elected to cancel our radioactive material distribution and possession licenses. At this time we can no longer accept ionization detectors for disposal. Because of the very small amounts of radioisotopes contained in the Hochiki detectors/sensors, California Radiologic Health Branch regulations allow exempt smoke detectors containing radioactive materials to be disposed of with household trash. However, it is possible that some landfills may prohibit such disposal.
Release of FireNET Xtinguish Product Line - 08/01/2013
BUENA PARK, CA (August 1,2013) Hochiki America has announced the availability of FireNET Xtinguish, an exciting new fire suppression product which utilizes an aerosol-forming solid compound to extinguish fires by inhibiting the chemical chain reactions within the fire itself. The compound is safe for humans, is ozone-friendly and EPA Snap List approved as a Halon alternative. FireNET Xtinguish is UL Listed for Class A, B and C fires, and canisters are available in numerous sizes which allow the system to meet even the most difficult applications.
The system can be used in data centers, computer rooms, mechanical and electrical control rooms, warehouses, engine rooms and hangar bays for vehicle storage and any installation where a fire suppression system is needed to protect the contents of a space. FireNET Xtinguish requires no piping or pressurized bottles and, as a result, frees up valuable storage and floor space as well as reducing engineering, installation and maintenance costs.
Post-fire cleanup is minimal and the system can be brought back online quickly with no containers or cylinders to refill. The FireNET Xtinguish is compatible with the HCVR-3 Fire Alarm Control Panel as well as the complete line of Hochiki smoke detectors and other peripheral devices.
