An annual service check is good for you, the fog cannon, your customer and us

Installer with toolsAs the manufacturer, we recommend that you as an alarm installation contractor conclude a security fog protection service agreement with your customers. A service check should be carried out once a year.

Providing your security fog protection customers with an annual service check gives you the opportunity to you stay in contact with your customers. And like a car, regular service extends the life of the fog cannon. Customers are satisfied and feel safe when everything has been checked and is in proper working order. Finally, this is a good way to ensure that your customer will recommend your business and our security fog protection to others!


What does a service check include?

A service check consists of checking signals, batteries, fog fluid level and any error reports. Batteries that are more than two years old should be replaced. Inspect the fog fluid manually - if it is yellow, it needs replacing. The shelf life of an installed fluid container is two years.

You should also check that the nozzle is not blocked and that there are no signs of vandalism or sabotage.

Finally, a service check should also include a check of the verifying sensor.


Activation of the fog cannon

We recommend that you test-fire the fog cannon as the final step of the service check. This does not necessarily have to be a full activation. It is a good idea to use your own service fluid container rather than consuming the customer's fluid. Before you leave the customer, you should begin airing out the space.

If the building also has an automatic fire alarm system installed, it is a good idea to test-fire the fog cannon, for example for one minute, in order to properly test the interaction of the fire alarm system with the fog cannon.
