Bosch Security Systems announces four additions to its innovative F220 Series detector line. An industry first, the F220- PTHC photoelectric smoke detector uses both heat and carbon monoxide elements to virtually eliminate unwanted alarms. The F220-135, F220-135F, and F220-190F round out the series, cornering the market on fixed temperature and rate-of-rise detectors.
The F220 Series has also received a California State Fire Marshal (CSFM) Listing, which allows the detectors to be used for primary fire alarm signalling in California.
