December 2017 – Solo 365 is now available!

SDi is proud to announce that Solo 365 – the innovative new smoke detector tester – is here! Using advanced cartridge technology, the Solo 365 eliminates the need for canned aerosol, resulting in a lighter and more efficient solution. Solo 365 is the fastest way to test and clear detectors.

In addition to its utilization of advanced smoke cartridge technology, the Solo 365 also has a built-in fan for fast clearing of detectors and preventing re-alarms. Its slim-line design makes it easier to access detectors in hard-to-reach locations, and it features a bright LED light that automatically turns on in darkness, illuminating dimly lit areas.

July 2017 – New Aerosol Regulation Changes

As some of you may or may not know, aerosol regulations will be changing in 2018. Effective December 31, 2017, aerosol smoke detector testers that utilize HFC-134a as a propellant will no longer be manufactured under the new EPA Rule 20. They will not be banned, however, due to the serious benefits and the importance they play in the life safety arena. This means that products like Solo A4 will still be able to be shipped and sold throughout 2018 or until supplies are exhausted. Other of our products, such as Smoke Centurion and Smoke Sabre, will remain unaffected by this changing of regulations. As for alternatives to Solo A4, we will be supplying a new and improved non-flammable smoke detector testing aerosol that fully complies with the new EPA Rule 20; Solo A10. In addition, we are also excited to announce the release of Solo 365; an innovative new tester for the functional testing of smoke detectors. Solo 365 delivers smoke via smoke cartridges offering faster, simpler and cleaner testing. You can expect to see the launch of Solo 365 in the fourth quarter of 2017.
