Why Is It Important To Know What Kind Of Smoke Detector Failed To Go Off?

It makes sense that consumers trust that a smoke detector will work. Consumers have the right to assume standards of reliability and quality.

Unfortunately, some smoke detectors are better suited for different kinds of fires. Specifically:

  • Ionization smoke detectors are generally more responsive to flaming fires.
  • Photoelectric smoke detectors are generally more responsive to smoldering fires.

Why? Because ionization smoke detectors are better at detecting heat and photoelectric detectors are better at detecting smoke.

When a smoldering fire, then, fails to generate much heat, an ionization smoke detector, marketed by Kidde or other manufacturers, may fail to detect the fire, even if it burns for hours. How do we know? Because have films that prove this, and we use these films and other evidence to pursue the full compensation our clients deserve following fire-related damages.
