Guard-X's fire detection equipment: efficiency and conformity

To offer you the very best, we only trust products that meet the highest standards in the industry. While the devices sold by the competition may be effective to different degrees, many unfortunately offer questionable value for money, to say the least...

If you want a system that won't let you down when you need it most, opt for legally compliant devices recommended by our experts AND by the City of Montreal firefighters! At Guard-X, all our products are easy to install, discreet and require no complex maintenance. Our 3 star models are :

Resettable fixed heat detector;
Thermovelocimetric heat detector;
Photoelectric smoke detectors (smart);
When smoke or heat is detected, these devices trigger the general alarm system, speeding up evacuation procedures. For detailed specifications of our sophisticated models, click here or contact one of our experts.

Where is the best place to install a smoke detector?


Depending on the type of building, fire detection devices can be placed in a variety of locations. In most cases, they are installed on the ceiling, as smoke naturally tends to rise. They should also be located away from windows, heaters, steam sources, dusty areas, fans or air vents.

At Guard-X, we've been specialists in the sale, installation, inspection, certification and maintenance of fire protection equipment for over 75 years. Come and meet one of our representatives to find the ideal system for your needs. Our Anjou store is open Monday to Thursday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. We look forward to contributing to your safety!
