Is installation easy?
Absolutely, installation couldn’t be simpler! A 5 ¾” hole can be cut with a regular handheld keyhole saw, and the GUARDIAN slides easily into this hole between floor joists.
Does the unit activate when I burn toast?
No. The unit is activated by a heat-sensitive fusible link. The GUARDIAN will activate when the temperature at the unit reaches 135° Fahrenheit (57° Celsius). At this temperature, there is a fire in your house.
Will the GUARDIAN extinguish fires?
It can, however every fire is unique because every home is unique and the contents within each home are different. Because of these many variables, the GUARDIAN is an automatic fire suppression system. Worst-case scenario, the GUARDIAN gives you more time to evacuate.
How many GUARDIAN units do I need in my house?
It depends on the layout of your house and the amount of protection you want. Tests have proven the GUARDIAN to suppress or extinguish fire in a 16′ x 16′ room. Therefore, having a Haven every 8-20′ would be optimal. At the very least it will protect your access and egress from your bedroom at night. You can also install more units in areas of higher fire risk such as kitchens or where the Christmas tree usually is.
