Waking Watch vs Wireless Fire Detection: Discussing the next generation of life safety

Waking Watches were introduced by the National Fire Chiefs Council as a temporary measure to keep residents who lived in buildings with dangerous cladding, safe.

The Explosion Proof Actuator from TLX Technologies

firecastmedia October 4, 2021

Our latest conversation is with Jason Busalacchi and Andrew Biehl from TLX Technologies, an engineering and manufacturing company that produces custom actuators, solenoids, and valves for the fire suppression market.
