Heat Detector Testers

Like smoke detectors, international codes and standards require that heat detectors be tested regularly using an appropriate heat source.

We offer several products to meet these requirements – with each offering reliability, value for money, and a solution that complies with codes and standards and comes with the approval of detector manufacturers. We pride ourselves on offering genuine product choice whilst providing a solution that will meet your needs and budget.
