Edwards Safety Notice SN00017 Details
For your reference, we have included Edwards Safety Notice SN00017 (“Safety Notice”) in this Bulletin.
On June 18, 2020, Edwards issued the Safety Notice mandating the field replacement of the 280 Series mechanical heat detectors installed in commercial applications identified in the Safety Notice or installed in residential attics or residential garages.
More specifically, the mandatory field replacement of the 280 Series mechanical heat detectors identified in Table 1 of the Safety Notice is required to the extent installed in commercial applications listed in Table 2 of the Safety Notice or installed in residential attics or residential garages. This is required to resolve an issue where the detectors in question may fail to report an alarm condition within the temperature range allowed by their agency listings.
Affected models not installed in commercial life safety applications, residential attics, or residential garages may present a property protection risk, and are also within scope of this remediation, to the extent manufactured on or after January 1, 2014; for such units, the warranty is being extended to five years, instead of the original three year warranty.
What should I do now?
Review the Safety Notice.
Please review the Safety Notice (starting on Page 3) for a list of the affected models.
